The e-commerce.

smtp - incorrect address format in classes/email.php line 520


Recommended Posts

Need help guys! I just transfered the osCommerce site from a linux box to windows. databse backup files have been inserted successfully and shared SSL is working properly, plus i can browse through all the products just fine.


however, new customer accounts are created BUT i never get to the success page. (i know this because i can log in with that account afterwards)

i'm on a MAC, firefox.

i fill in the required fields to create an account and when i click on "SUBMIT" the page doesn't reload or do anything, but i get prompted to save the create_account.php file or open it.

i save the file and open it in dreamweaver to see and it shows the error message:

PHP Warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 501 Incorrect Address Format in C:\Websites\MY_WEBSITE_ADDRESS.com\catalog\includes\classes\email.php on line 520

UPDATE: its been fixed by adding the following ini variables to the includes/classes/email.php



ini_set("sendmail_from","[email protected]");



I'm having that same error too, i'm not good with this stuff - learning as i'm going - where did you put those variables in the file please? After line 520 or just anywhere?
