  • board/system emails

    sorry to bring this up again but needs must

    my server people block emails from '[email protected]' it is my understanding that this is the starting point for mails sent out by the board

    now the easy answer is to move servers - dont want to do that, next option is to move to 3.5 and use smtp emails - have tested that and it works - but dont want to do that yet, there are also addons to version3 that are said to add smtp mai, tried that and got nowhere

    so a stupid question - yes i know vbulletin do not support code changes go to......etc but would a simple code chage answer my problem

    i am assuming that the name 'nobody' is embedded in the vb code, could that be changed to something else to get round the block at the server or am i being far too symplistic

    The 'nobody' comes from the server, not vB. vB uses the webmaster's email for the FROM field.

    You can try this to see if it helps:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Server Settings and Optimization Options -> Enable "-f" Parameter -> Yes

      thanks Steve, thought my thinking was too simple

      have tried the -f thing, it helps in that it sends mails to me as webmaster but not to the poster

      looks like the upgrade to 3.5 is more urgent than i would like it to be
