Support » Fixing WordPress » Word Press email problem.

  • I recently upgraded to 1.5 and am not recieving any email for comments and for user registrations. I’ve removed the $mores from functions.php and the problem persists. I am however recieving traceback spam and email notification on that traceback spam.

    The header of the notification:
    Return-path: <>

    I don’t use the address, anywhere in the configs and I also searched the mysql database and found no instances of it.

    Also why is the email being sent by

    Go here and click the download link: and replace your /wp-icludes/functions.php with that file.

    As for the email addresses, they don’t actually exist. The root user (system) at is sending the email which is coming from WordPress at

    I got the comment notification working sorta, new posts that recieve comments I get an email, old posts made prior to upgrade to 1.5 I do not recieve email.

    I also can not seem to get user registration to work correctly. No email is sent when I register a test user or request a password of a current user. I have tried the CVS version of wp-register.php but the problem still persists.

    please help 🙁

    Valid Email header

    Registration mails weren’t go to some e-mail servers or it was being junk mail in WordPress system. We fixed this problem. Please open wp-includes/pluggable-functions.php find line 64:

    “From: ” . get_settings(‘admin_email’) . “\n”

    after add following tags,

    “Reply-To: ” . get_settings(‘admin_email’) . “\n” .
    “Return-Path: ” . get_settings(‘admin_email’) . “\n” .

    it was a problem because there wasn’t Return-Path .
    that’s oke 🙂

    Thanks for all share.
