Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Problems with standard e-mails

I am having two problems with the set of automatic e-mails.

When assigned a paper, our first editor said that the standard e-mail sent out barely passed his spam filter, because the "From" address was his own address.

The other problem is that the e-mail he received was the default e-mail. I had changed the editorial assignment e-mail earlier, and this modified version still comes up when I look in the administration section.

What might the problem be? Thank you for your time and let me know if I can give more information that would be helpful.

I did find in submissions.php changing:

$mailbody = $chDefaultBody;


$mailbody = $chBody;

of course set the e-mail to what I wanted, rather than the default (a simple oversight).

And I changed the $headers to be hardcoded as a certain e-mail address. I don't know if this will better the spam rating anyhow.
