smtp error from

Before I start into the code I thought I'd better check to see if anyone has seen this before. It comes from revieweredit.php - it's not fatal and it does add the reviewer when I go back to look.



Warning: mail(): SMTP server response: 501 <James Geek <>>: "@" or "." expected after "James" in c:\program files\apache group\apache\htdocs\ojs\include\ on line 344

This is apparently a bug (or feature?) in PHP on Windows operating systems.

The only workaround I can suggest is to find all instances of the mail() function in the code and change them so that the recipient's name is not included.


Code: Select all

mail("$row[chFirstName] $row[chSurname] <$row[chEmail]>", ...)


Code: Select all

mail($row[chEmail], ...)
