Support » Fixing WordPress » 1.5.1 email issue (wp_mail)

  • In 1.5 I had problems with the mails sent by wordpress. This could be solved by changing the following line in “/wp-includes/functions.php”
    return @mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers, $more);
    return @mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
    In 1.5.1. the wp_mail function can be found in “/wp-includes/pluggable-functions.php”. But there’s already the line:
    return @mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

    Nevertheless since the upgrade to 1.5.1. I have the problem, that parts which belong to the mail header can be found in the message. My spam assassin doesn’t like that too much:

    From: "Udo" <info@unkenntlichgemacht.invalid>
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8"

    New comment on your post #170 "S/MIME-VerschlÃŒsselung mit Thawte"

    … and then there’s the rest, but without the right encoding.

    With 1.5 mails started with the “New comment…” line.

    Any ideas?

  • Does noone have that problem?

    It seems that I also have the same problem. The strange thing is though that the mail which is send to the admin looks perfect and where the headers are fine. But the one send to the newly registered person has the headers in the mail itself.

    So far i haven’t figured out a solution. Maybe someone else can bring us the answers.

    In my case, it is fixed with

    I am now on, and I am having this problem. [Not sure when it started – I think I have always had it since I installed 1.5.]

    When I view the email while it is still on the POP server, with a web-based client, it looks fine. When I retrieve it into Microsoft Outlook 2003, the problem occurs – the From: and Content-Type: headers are not recognised, and are treated as part of the body.
