Topic: Broadcast Email Error

I received the following error message when I used Broadcast Email for the first time. How do I correct this?

Warning: ob_start(): output handler 'ob_gzhandler' cannot be used twice in /nfs/cust/6/44/97/579446/web/IDRSBBS/include/functions.php on line 926
An error was encountered
Error: Unable to send e-mail. Please contact the forum administrator with the following error message reported by the SMTP server: "501 5.1.3 Path data: Missing "@" from mailbox definition ".

Re: Broadcast Email Error

Probably, one of your users is registered with an invalid e-mail. You'd have to go through the users and check which one. The easiest way would be to run an SQL query and fetch all e-mail addresses. Something like:

SELECT Username, Email FROM Users

Bekko: If the email is in the database, we can assume it's valid already
Try this though

$mail_to        = $recipientname." <".$recipientemail.">";


$mail_to        = $recipientemail;

resolved my problem...many thanks

No problem
Rickard: you might want to put out an updated version of the plugin with the fix.

Re: Broadcast Email Error

put that file(AP_Broadcast_Email.php) in the plugins folder of your forums root. then goto your admin section and you should see the link on the left panel at the bottom.

Re: Broadcast Email Error

Downloaded Broadcast Email a few hours ago. I fixed it myself but now I'm getting a time out error with a larger database. How  can I tell if I've sent out any emails? I'm worried about sending out duplicates.
