Support » Plugin: ContactMe » [Plugin: ContactMe] Rejected for bad headers

  • Resolved digitalquill



    I am having problems with the plugin. Emails sent are getting rejected for bad headers:

    Mar 17 14:48:08 mail postfix/smtpd[13963]: disconnect from[XX-XXX-XXX-XX]
    Mar 17 14:48:08 mail amavis[13823]: (13823-11) Blocked BAD-HEADER, LOCAL [XX-XXX-XXX-XX] [XX-XXX-XXX-XX] <> -> <>, quarantine: b/badh-biJzen7DSird, Message-ID: <>, mail_id: biJzen7DSird, Hits: -, size: 1300, 78 ms
    Mar 17 14:48:08 mail postfix/smtp[13974]: 71EEB24D0326: to=<>, relay=[]:10024, delay=0.11, delays=0.03/0/0/0.08, dsn=2.6.0, status=sent (250 2.6.0 Ok, discarded, id=13823-11 – BAD HEADER)

    Any Help would be great

    There should be nothing in header that doesn’t conform to the standard layout.
    However the from field and subject field ( if you supplied one) are included in the header, along with the blogs encoding type.

    What email address are you using in the from field? is it from your domain. Sometines ISPs block sending emails from other domains for spam reasons, and the plugins does send emails from the sender to make it easier for you to reply.

    Also it is possible with postfix to turn off header checking, if this is something that you can do please do so so we can get an email to check exactly what is in the header.


    Are you saying I need to include a subject field? I do not have one on the form. Can this be hidden?

    I have added a subject field and no difference.

    I have tried sending to both gmail and my own domains

    How do I change the from address?

    A subject field is optional, it will be filled in with a default if one is not supplied.
    I was just thinking what could be in the header apart from the known strings.

    The from address is taken from the name and email fields in the form. If you use one with the same domain as the sites domain we will know wether this is the problem or it something else.
