General Help & How-To / Message Disappears After Preview Sent
« on: June 06, 2017, 07:07:54 pm »

This problem occurs when I attempt to "Send an Email"

Upon entering  text and HTML message in the Message Composition area I click the 'Preview' button. The preview message gets sent and looks fine in the email client. But the original message disappears from the Message Composition window, thus preventing me from sending the message to my list.

I suspect I might have some illegal character in the message. If so I don't know what to look for.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

Email Web Hosting / Re: Amazon SES

Thanks for your quick reply, Dean.

My list is less than 2000. I'm currently using HostGator.
Maybe I'll consider switching to DreamHost.  Do they
have less restrictions on sending email than HostGator?

Email Web Hosting / Amazon SES
« on: May 14, 2013, 08:28:30 am »
I just learned about the Amazon SES email sending service. It seems like a perfect way to avoid the delivery problems and restrictions of sending through a regular web host.

Has anybody here successfully integrated ListMailPro with Amazon SES?  Are you having any problems using the service?

It would be great if someone could share the settings they used on the ListMail configuration page send mail through SES.


General Help & How-To / Still can't restore backup file
« on: August 12, 2009, 08:09:01 am »
I uploaded the gz backup file to the new server using Binary mode as you suggested, and comoded it to 755.

Still got the same error when I tried to restore the database:

Dropping old tables... OK Unzipping...
Warning: fopen(./attach/2009-08-12_11-27-53.LM) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/charl242/public_html/mail/editconf.php on line 231
gz: could not open input and/or output file

I decided maybe my server can't unzip gzip files.  So I backed up my old database as a simple LM file.

This time the database seemed to populate the tables.  But I got this error message:

Dropping old tables... OK Importing data - Please wait... You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ''Dear !fname,I’d meant to write you from last Friday, Jan 23rd, when I firstarri' at line 1

My server uses PHP version 5.2.6 and MySQL version 5.0.81-community

I don't know how to fix this.  I looked in the new server's listmail interface and all the lists and followups seem to be there.

But when I attempted to broadcast an email to a small list I get this error:

   admin-35-Table 'charl242_mail.lm_sendp' doesn't exist

I went into phpmyAdmin to look at the database and found only 9 of the tables were there.  19 tables were created by listmail on the new server during installation.  I checked the database on the original server and there were 19 tables there too.  So 10 tables were lost in the transfer.

I tried this several times and get the same results.

What do you suggest I do?


General Help & How-To / Trouble Restoring Database
« on: August 09, 2009, 01:06:12 pm »
I'm trying to transfer my listmail installation to a new server.  I backed up the original database and uploaded the gz backup file to the listmail folder on the new server in ASCII mode. In the new installation, when I select the backup file in ListMail's Restore section I get the following error:

Warning: fopen(./attach/2009-08-09_03-15-00.LM) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/charl242/public_html/mail/editconf.php on line 231
gz: could not open input and/or output file

Can anyone tell me what the problem is and how to solve it?

Development, Suggestions / [Bug] Upgrade Problem - "Unknown Column"
« on: December 23, 2006, 08:14:50 pm »
I just tried an upgrade from 1.84 to 1.87d.

I overwrote the old files with the new ones and went to my /listmail folder in the browser.  It displayed this error message after about 15 seconds while running 'editlists.php':

List 1 Settings:
Unknown column 'remsubj' in 'field list'

Any suggestions on what the problem could be?
I'm able to log into phpMyAdmin but don't know what table to look
in for the errant column.

General Help & How-To / Error When Sending Email
« on: March 14, 2006, 04:55:31 pm »
When I submit an email to my list the script always goes to domail.php but displays 'Page Not Found' in the browser.

Fortunately the email DOES go out to the list.  And the message is saved in 'Sent Messages'.

Any clue as what causes the error page?

General Help & How-To / Preventing Mailing to New Imports
« on: November 12, 2005, 02:42:11 pm »
I'm transferring my subscriber list to a new server.

I set up Listmail on the new server and have already set up the same
followup messages as were on the old server.

How can I import the list to the new Listmail installation without triggering the Welcome message and same sequence of messages they already saw on the old server?  

Chuck :)
