Error message on deprecated function

Hi Ray,

My contact form is now returning these errors:

Deprecated: filter_var(): explicit use of FILTER_FLAG_SCHEME_REQUIRED and FILTER_FLAG_HOST_REQUIRED is deprecated in /home/ncjefferson/public_html/webassist/email/phpmailer/src/PHPMailer.php on line 3632

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/ncjefferson/public_html/webassist/email/phpmailer/src/PHPMailer.php:3632) in /home/ncjefferson/public_html/webassist/email/WA_Email.php on line 351

I get the first error message 4 times, followed by the second one.

As far as I know, nothing has changed on the site to prompt this error. How do I fix it?

Thanks - Joe

If you re-install databridge and update your email server behavior it will update your mailer files to correct this issue. It looks like you have an older version. You could also just turn off deprecated messages. This wouldn't actually cause any issues if the message was hidden.

Thanks - updating DataBridge, and then server behavior did the trick.
