General Help & How-To / Re: Daily Mail does NOT work!
« on: February 21, 2014, 02:16:11 am »
I've contacted my host to see if the LMP cron job code is compatible or not with their servers.

In the meantime....

I DID the Manual Dailymail and it APPEARED to be working properly... but then Two Days Later... it did NOT work properly!!!

Doing the Manual Dailymail test puts us up yet ANOTHER 24 hours to have to wait to see if our coding is right or not!

Is there ANY way to test DailyMail and followups withOUT having to wait ANOTHER 24 hours?!?

And, NOT having the timing of the Dailymail be kicked up that 24 hours?

I tried your suggestion of the "two minute" cron job.... but I really didn't understand HOW to make the silly thing work to USE the "two minute" cron job.

What am I missing here?  What can I try out with the "two minute" cron job while I'm waiting for my host to get back to me... and HOW do I go about doing that?

Daily mail and follow ups do NOT work!

I waited two days for the Dailymail and Followups to send out, but they have not.

Today, I clicked on Dailymail button and sent a Manual Dailymail.

List 1 & List 2 both had followups to send out to one test member/user in each List.

I did get a Dailymail Report for today saying that I had one new user in each List and...BOTH followups were sent, one to each List.

Only List 1 received the followup.

I sent out an email to each List and it went to Both Lists okay.

What do I do to fix this?



Every time I click on "Save Message" in Message message Disappears!

Here's the sequence I've been doing:

- I click on the "List Settings" button

- In "Welcome and Confirmation" ... I tick the "Send welcome email or when confirmed" box

- I click [ Edit Message ]

- I'm now in "Message Composition" box

- I enter my copy into "Subject" and "Text Message"

- I click on the "Save Message" button

My message DISAPPEARS!!!

How do I fix this???


I just installed LMP onto a couple of websites.  Although they reside on the same hosting company and server, something strange is happening with this code, that is causing subscribe errors.

When I put the code into the wordpress page and publish the page, extra slashes are added to the code in the fields, like this:

size="40">  to: size="40"/>
list value=200>  to:     list value=200/>
sup value="Subscribe">  to:    sup value="Subscribe"/>

Here's the entire code:


<form method=post action=>
<FONT FACE="verdana, arial" SIZE="2">
<B>First Name:</B> &nbsp; &nbsp; </FONT> <input type=text name=fname size="40"><br>
<font face="verdana, arial" size="2">
<input type=hidden name=list value=200>
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <B>Email: </B>
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <input type=text name=email size="40"><br>
<FONT FACE="arial" SIZE="2">
 <input type=submit name=sup value="Subscribe">

TURNS INTO THIS - extra slashes added (example: value=200/):

<form method=post action=>
<font FACE="verdana, arial" SIZE="2">
<b>First Name:</b> &nbsp; &nbsp; </font> <input type=text name=fname size="40"/><br />
<font face="verdana, arial" size="2">
<input type=hidden name=list value=200/>
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <b>Email: </b>
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <input type=text name=email size="40"/><br />
</font><font FACE="arial" SIZE="2">
 <input type=submit name=sup value="Subscribe"/>
<br /><br />

When I try to send a test (or sign up), I get the error message, "list not numeric"...

I reinstalled LMP (twice).

I have updated the WordPress version.

I have updated the theme.

I have disabled all the plug-ins.

The same problem is still happening....

The site was recently moved from another Host to the current one. Could it be something went wrong there?

Again, LMP is working perfectly on another site moved on the same day to the same server.

I don't know what else to try.....

PLEASE help me solve this!

Thank you,

Ruben James

Thanks for your prompt reply!

We have not sent any emails or messages using LMP as of yet... we just installed it.

The same day that we installed LMP is when we got 100's of links from Russian sites linking to us.

I looked into these Russian sites that are linking to my server and a large number of them are porn sites. This never happened before installing LMP.

I did some research on autoresponders and found that hackers are finding their way into the SQL on the servers.

Does LMP use a perl script that's installed in the cgi bin or directory?

What mechanism does LMP have to prevent SQL Injection attacks?


The very day I set up LMP on my website, I noticed a big spike in traffic (about 100 visitors a day).

Looking through the AWSTATS, I find that they are almost all "links from an external page" - all from Russia.

What is going on? Why would they do this?

Russian sites are known spammers and hackers.

Are they using my server to send SPAM through LMP? Are they trying to hack into my server from some reason?

How do I plug up the vulnerabilities in LMP to keep these 100's of Russian sites from spamming or hacking my server?

General Help & How-To / Still not getting Welcome message to work
« on: January 12, 2008, 02:08:46 pm »

I added email accounts for the "bounce" address and for the "forwarder email" address but the Welcome message still does not work.

Did I do it the way you instructed or did I misunderstand?

Please let me know asap.

I just checked and the welcome message also doesn't work on a site I put up last month on a DIFFERENT webhost. I thought maybe the problem was an incompatibility with the new webhost, but clearly that's not it.  I tried several different email addresses.  Doesn't work, just like the other one.  I seriously need to get these autoresponders working right away.  Please respond quick!

General Help & How-To / Welcome and Follow up do not work

I recently installed LMP on a new host.  For some unknown reason, the welcome message never gets sent out.  The followup messages don't go out either.  However, I can send emails to the list.

I don't know if its an incompatibility with this host or what.  I need to fix this problem and get the welcome messages and followups to work asap.


General Help & How-To / Need help with 'Internal PHP mail()'
« on: May 09, 2007, 11:02:39 am »
I am not allowed to use SMTP and HAVE to use Internal PHP mail ( ).

I've tried different input data, but 'Internal PHP mail ( )' hasn't worked yet.

What should I do to get Internal PHP mail ( ) working.

I can NOT move my hosting at this time but I will do so ASAP.



I was told by my host that,"...normal users are not allowed to access the SMTP socket in the server for security reasons.  So you cannot use this method. :shock:
You need to use the second method 'Internal PHP mail()'."

Okay....I've tried it in every combo of input that I could think of and I keep getting that the Server in NOT enabled. :oops:

What do I do now.....besides find another host....which I WILL....but, until then....I have to get this working.  :cry:

Thanks in advance. :D

I'm having trouble setting up SMTP on a site.

I have a very long login ID (40 characters) and it appears that the box only allows 35 characters.

How can I expand the box to accept more characters

General Help & How-To / SMTP will not work
« on: May 08, 2007, 12:45:04 am »
I'm getting this error message when I do the "Test Mail Settings" of a new set up.  I've checked and tried everything I could think of....

Could this be possibly the host is not allowing SMTP sendings from a web script, like you suggested???

[SMTP Server]
Is enabled?  Yes
Connecting to SMTP server..
Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: unable to connect to localhost:25 in /home/toptipsf/public_html/mail/editconf.php on line 1907
Could not find server!

The SMTP server is not configured correctly. Check your settings.

My host no longer allows 777 permissions.....they allow 755 at the most.

I can not get my SMTP to work successfully.....

Does the permissions limitation have anything to do with SMTP problem?

Thanks in advance!

Changing the .htaccess to:  "DirectoryIndex index.php"  did the trick :D

But...does this now open the opportunity for hackers :shock:
