Recipient address rejected - Script stops

Recipient address rejected - Script stops

We are using the CDONTS NewMail object to send out a number of emails taken from a recordset.

Somewhere down list (no. 127) the inevitable happens: wrong email address. We get this message:

Recipient address rejected: Domain not found; from=<mail@ourdomain.com> to=<mail@theirdomain.com>

The script stops and we get an internal http 500 server error. According to our log, the system did send out 127 emails before it stopped.

Please tell me what I am doing wrong?

One of the addresses in your database is not a valid email address. check the email addresses in your recordset.

Maybe create a repeating region to write them to the web page so you can examine them.

I think what he's asking is how to prevent a total stop to the process when it hits a bad address. You can't always prevent users from entering a bad address.

The process stops totally and that's my problem - thank you office172461. My list probably contains numerious bad addresses and I have no way of checking this.

So my question is: How can I make sure that the process continues and gets to the end of my list even with a few a bad addresses here and there?

By not being a "valid" email address, I think he means that it has to do with formatting, not that the email address actually exists.

A properly formatted email address will still send, it will just bounce back if the recipient doesn't exist. The only time I ever ran into this problem, that was the cause - there was a space or a dot where it wasn't supposed to be.

As far as user entry, it's necessary to have form validation on email addy input fields - if it passes validation for an email address field, then it will work with UE.

My hope lasted only shortly. I just checked the address that caused the process to stop and it IS a valid address.

Is there a leading or trailing space on the address?


try using the trim function to remove any leading pr trailing spacess:

$RecipientEmail = "".trim($row_RSName["Email"]) ."";include("WA_Universal_Email/WAUE_users_EmailPW_1.php");

The address looks really allright to me but it seems like a good idea to use the TRIM function in any case.

Would you care to send me the correct function in ASP?

Thanks

In asp, the recipient email is added as:
WA_Universal_Email_1_SendMail("" & cStr(cStr(Request.Form("textfield"))) & "")


to use the Trim function;
WA_Universal_Email_1_SendMail("" & cStr(cStr(Trim(Request.Form("textfield")))) & "")

I tried the TRIM function and my script still stops completely when I get to one particular address.

I checked the email address using this link validate.aspx. Don't know if this validator makes any sense but I get "Mail box does not exist".

The address giving me all this headache is ocn@thtane.com
