 Jeff Denny - E-mail problems  9/3/2003; 4:23:17 PM (reads: 901, responses: 2) We have recently set up WebWork 1.8 here and are now having e-mail problems with one of our courses (but not the other). In the offending course, we get the following error when attempting to send e-mail to anyone in the course: ------------------- Your message has been sent to 0 users. However, emails were not sent to the following 1 users: The format below is "FirstName LastName " The following have a bad email address example1 example ------------------- I've seen this problem in another posting to this discussion group, but there didn't appear to be any solution suggested. Does anyone have a solution now? Thank you in advance! <| Post or View Comments |>

Maybe the $legalAddress or$smtpServer from Global.pm got redefined (but this would be a strange thing to do).  I'm not sure what your mail server does is  $Global::smtpSender is invalid.

The environment variable$Global::smtpSender was set to a user id and not to a complete e-mail address. Not sure why this happened, but I've got it fixed now and e-mail is working! Thanks again!
