Support » Fixing WordPress » AOL blocking mail- using -f

  • Hello love the WordPress program!!

    I have aproblem between my hosting company (ixwebhosting) and AOL members getting mail from the php mailer.

    I had solved this problem with two other php mailers 1) A referal mailer and 2) phpprofiles by adding-f so it will have a good return path. I am not versed in php code , but I am able to read some lines to know what they r for.

    My question is where can I (if I can) put the -f so the mail will get to AOL users?

  • I have had several problems with aol mail addresses getting to folks. It seems any time there is a hyperlink they bounce it.
    Not sure about your deal.

    Thanks samboll, but i just found the line to change in aanother post on here, Doh!! I thought i searched every tag, but nooo, i search my own tag ” -f ” and found the answer u just have to change

    in the wp-includes folder – pluggable.php – line 165

    From :

    return @mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers,”);


    return @mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers,””);

    Thereis no space between the -f and wordpress@..

    also does not need to be the default generated address.

    thanks anyway
