Error mail problem with FluxBB 1.5.10

Hi,

First, be kind with my English, I am a poor little French LOL

I have a FluxBB 1.5.10 Forum, wich is installed on a commercial server (1&1.fr), and my mail adress is in the admin option case "webmaster email". I received, every day, some "error mail" or "undelivered mail", send from my webmaster email to the others members of the forum, but I had never send theses mail.

Do you think the problem (virus or spammer...) is located in the forum, or in my mail server ? I have anti-virus in both, on server and on my mail.

Thank you for your help

Regards

Re: Error mail problem with FluxBB 1.5.10

That might just mean that somebody registered on the forums with an invalid email address... FluxBB tries to send the welcome / confirmation email to them, the address does not exist and you get the "undelivered email" response.

You could double-check whether the recipient email belongs to an unconfirmed user account in your forum's database. (You can search by email on the Administration -> Users page.)

Re: Error mail problem with FluxBB 1.5.10

Hi Franz,

thank you for your word. But my problem is not exactly like that:

- Not error mail received from new members, who subscribe to the the forum.

- I receive "error mail" in my admin adress, from "old" members registred since 2 or more years, as if I send us a private message throught the forum, and if their mail was wrong.
It is as if a "robot" use my admin mail to send PM to others members, and theses return to me with "error".

Next time I have one, I send you a copy

Regards

Re: Error mail problem with FluxBB 1.5.10

Hi, I received two new "error" like this:

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of
its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es)
failed:

matiex@free.fr:
SMTP error from remote server for TEXT command, host: mx1.free.fr (212.27.48.6) reason: 550 spam detected


It seems to be spam send by my admin mail, but I didn'nt send any mail. Possible virus or a spam account ? The adress matiex@free.fr is good. I received "error" from others mail members.

Thank you

Regards

Hmm, you might be able to make some improvements to your mailserver. This article lists a few tips.
