#2844 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

No value for sendmail_from, user registration email not sent

Reported by: shacker Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 2.0.3
Component: Administration Keywords: sendmail mail user registration

WP installed in cPanel add-on domains do not send welcome messages to new WP users.

Watching the exim_reject_log shows:

F=<> rejected after DATA: there is no valid sender in any header line


Envelope-from: <>


F From:

phpinfo(); confirms that the sendmail_from property has "no value."

Adding this to .htaccess :

php_value sendmail_from user@…

causes phpinfo() to show a valid value, but attempting to register a new user still shows exim refusing to send the message because there is "no valid sender."

A simple PHP mail test script in the same dir works fine.
