That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..
The SOLUTION has been found.....
There were no A records set up for the mail server..
Many sites configure their mail servers to reject mail from hostnames that don't resolve properly, in order to cut down on spam so the headers were being rejected by pop accounts. I put in proper records and VOILA... the emails sent!.
Goes to show that sometimes it's the dumbest things that cause the most amount of grief!.
Thanks to everybody that tried to help!..
In my case, there were no DNS address records on my mail server, so the ISP (POP servers) were kicking them back. The proper records will depend on your mail servers particular setup. If you're having the exact same issues I was having, then thats a great place to start. I'm by no means an expert on this, but I'm happy to look at your setup if you need me to..
Hi! This group has people of all sizes and there are quite a few of us here trying to lose at least 100 pounds. Welcome to the group!..
Hi mate, I'm having the exact same problems you described in your original post. I have being going through everything for the last few days without any luck..
I dont completely understand how you solved this situation. (sorry if thats dumb).
I am hosted by doteasy and know a few people on these forums going through the same thing..
Can you please clarify what I need to do to get this working..
Many Thanks in advance..
I will email you too, hope you dont mind...
Hi Raynel...and welcome to DS! I'm in the 300+ section over here (wave!), and there are others with me who can sure relate to what it's like to BE there! I know you will find a lot of caring friends and support here. -Lori..
What I have discovered is the following... Pay a visit to www.dnsreport.com and have a go at the settings... it will tell you what fails if it's a DNS issue. Repair the things.
And then see if that fixes your problems. Remember, these frustrations are just obstacles on the road to a great shopping cart!.
When all else fails, change hosts to one that is KNOWN to work with OSCommerce, it makes life so much easier than the weeks of pulling out your hair..
Yep - welcome to DS Raynel. I was just over 300. I have just recently dropped below that level. Let us know how we can help. It's a great group around here!..
Oh, and I have NO hair to spare! Happy St. Pat's to you all!..
Hi there, it is very difficult at times to get that special support.You will find so much here.My mom is a whopping 102lbs..my sister150 and my brother was 175(we lost him two years ago)most family members are small but they love me and support me. But I still always ask why are they so small but not me? Dr. says I'm fine..I just have to change alot of things to be healthy.At any rate,im sure you are an awesome person and many will be there for you.This site is the best thing I have found in years..welcome to DS...
After 5 long days, I am asking one last time for help, and I'm going to outline everything as best as I can so there is no confusion as to what I'm looking for..
Email is not working correctly on my osCommerce installation. Before you reply, read everything that I have to say..
1) This is hosted on a linux server..
2) Transport is set to "sendmail" and I have tried "SMTP" as well.
3) line feeds is set to "lf" and I have tried "crlf" as well.
4) Emails are set to "true", they are turned on.
5) There is an email address installed for the iPage site owner and for the "from" field.
6) The contribution located at.
Has been installed and tested..
What I have been able to confirm..
1) the Email address works as a functional email address to send and receive mail for everything BUT osCommerce.
2) When sending an email from the test script and osCommerce, email is transported, I get the verification that it has sent..
3) Email will go without any trouble to Yahoo mail and Hotmail as well as other web based email addresses.
4) Email will NOT go to ISP hosted addresses such as[18.104.22.168], dsn=5.6.0, stat=Data format error.
Feb 18 11:14:04 ns sendmail: i1IGCvmB000795: i1IGE4mB000797: DSN: Data format error.
Feb 18 11:14:04 ns sendmail: i1IGE4mB000797: to=root, delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=local, pri=31454, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent.
Emails go out, but they are rejected..
6) The ISP claims that the script needs tweaking and there is nothing wrong with the server or it's settings..
I need the following:.
1) A solution.
2) Something specific to tell the iPage hosting company if it IS the server that is causing this..
3) Something specific to do to the code if it's NOT the server..
There are HUNDREDS of posts about this and similar problems on this forum, and no one to date has been kind enough to post the solution if they have found it. I will post the solution if one exists..
I need help and at this point, I need it soon..
Please don't ask if I have things like sendmail and lf set, or if it's set to be on, that was days ago. At this point I know that mail is going to SOME places, why not others? Is there something about the headers that is causing them to be rejected by ISP email hosts? If so, what can be done about it?.
Any help will be so much appreciated you can't even imagine..
Thanks in advance...
Hi Rayneenie! I am also new here! Welcome aboard! I know that you will find the help you need. You said it perfectly... someone to walk WITH you!! I can relate, because everyone I work with looks as if they need to eat a sandwich... and then there's me. They don't understand AT ALL. But, WE DO HERE!! ~Tracey..
Maybe you could try replacing the files used to send the emails with new ones perhaps their is a corrupt character in one of the files? for example a ' or " or ; when their shouldn't be. Replacing the files would at least eliminate this. Sorry I don't know what files would be needed..
Clutching at straws a wee bit here but "mailer=esmtp" in the error message looks wrong to me (of course I may be wrong as I may be missing something I'm not aware of :-)) I would have thought it should have been mailer=smtp..
Also along the same lines another part of the "Data Format Error" message looks odd but may not be is "to=root" That gives the impression that the emails are being sent by root and not by an.
Sorry best I can do.
Today is my first day to this group just.
Wanted to let you know your not by yourself. I went to Dr this morning and weightd in at 298. Two pounds less than two weeks ago when I went in. I think we can do this together...
I have a goal to lose 100 pounds. I don't know the 300 or 400 mark, but know the terror of almost hitting 300! It's a long road, but one I think is worth it..
1. Write down your reasons you want to weigh less and lose pounds..
2. Begin to control your portions/calories for your weight goals, there are calculators online. For example you don't want to suddenly only eat 1600 calories if you are starting at 400 pounds..
3. At some point you should add.
, chair exercises. Slow, add each week, build up your strength!.
4. Keep a journal. Be honest with yourself, you can keep your journal private here! Write down your feelings, emotions, hopes, dreams, worries, put it all in there!.
5. Know we are all here to help you!!!!!.
Don't worry about what anyone else thinks. For a little bit of time only worry about you!..
Hi reyneedie, I have almost hit 300. I know how you feel. Nobody to go through this with support. This site is terrific. Wonderful sense of humors and fun to talk with, encouragers, etc... Welcome. We are here for you...
It is my.
That this will motivate you do make a change. On my profile is the pic of my wife and myself before and after WLS. I am not saying this is the right decision for you. it saved our lives both of us have had weight issues all of our lives so I know what it is like to be Fat and fit I was in the Army for 4 years. I have the experience of loosing several bodies through diet. the fact is diets dont work life changes do.
I dont know if you know but it would help you to find out what is motivating you to eat is it depression or low self esteem ? are you upset with your self? once you figure that out then you can start to figure out a game plan to start reversing the behavior and the act of digging your grave with a fork. you dont have to walk 10 miles start by going accross the room around the house as you feel stronger go further drink lots of water,crystal light. get into a pool and just move the water gives you a way to exercisde without beating your joints to powder. decide my body only need 65 grams of protien to function daily and very little carbs ,absolutely no more bread, pasta, soda(not even diet)no starch (As little as you can get away with )no Rice And most important dont put more than 6 oz. of Medifast food in your stomach at anyone meal and 3 meals a day period!!!!!! Yes you will be hungry if you are frill it with liquid dont starve and you wont if you get your protien in.
Last of all decide that you dont want to burden your family to have to watch YOU DIE a SLOW and VER VER PAINFUL DEATH way earlier than you want too. You said you wanted to get motivated I will know how committed you are by how long it takes you to do the things you need to do. I will also know because at first you will hate me but after you start loosing then you will thank me. last thing DONT WEIGH EVERYDAY!!!!!!!!!! that is counter productive I am hear for ya and I am willing to help you long distance but you have to decide that living is important enough to you and to your family..
HI WELCOME !!!!! I'm pretty new to this group and I'am on this long journey as well ,,,but with all the support that their is in this wonder online family we will ALL make it to the finish line and we shall be the biggest loser.....
