General Help & How-To / Daily Mail does NOT work!
« on: February 20, 2014, 05:35:30 pm »

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

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 / Welcome and Follow up do not work
« on: January 11, 2008, 04:44:42 pm »
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!

General Help & How-To / FORBIDDEN!
« on: March 14, 2006, 12:35:45 am »

I'm installing on a new site and when I try to go to get FORBIDDEN - You don't have permission to access /mail on this server...Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I am certain that my config.php database info is correct.

What else could be the problem???

Thanks for any and all help

General Help & How-To / How do I retrieve Custom Field info?
« on: October 30, 2005, 11:32:17 pm »

I clicked on Custom Fields, added some questions I needed and created a form, which I loaded on to a webpage.  When I tested the form, the first name, last name and email address show up in the user database, but where does the rest of the information go?  The answers to the questions (info entered into the custom fields) on the form?  How do I retrieve that information?


My host allows only one MySQL database.  I am already using the database  for my rss feed.  Can I also use the same database to install ListMailPro???


To my horror, I discovered over 100 spam addresses in one of my LMP lists today.  Here are a few of the email addresses I found, just to give you an idea:

The problem is, the way LMP is configured now, I have to sit there and Delete each one by one.  Dean, there's over 100 -- there's got to be a better way!

Please, please add the little boxes by each address so I can select which address I want to remove and remove them all by clicking on Delete once.  Otherwise, I'll go mad!

I need this function NOW.  Not in a few months or next week.  These guys are spamming from my list.  They won't stop until I get their names out of there.

General Help & How-To / Spammers getting into LMP
« on: May 28, 2004, 12:13:10 am »
Yesterday, I got a slew of returned mail from various forged spam
addresses that have my address on them.  I
even got a flame from someone demanding I take them off my list.

The spammers are somehow sending from my website.  I've found that
sometimes the route they use is by signing themselves up to my

Sure enough, in checking my LMP lists, I found two email addresses
that were suspicious:

I did NOT subscribemyself under those addresses.  I deleted them but
don't know if that will stop them.

The question is, LMP needs some kind of safeguard to prevent outsiders
from signing up fake names under your own websites url, such as

Or, at least the search feature needs to be able to look up the
domain name part of an email, such as anyone @ '' and
produce all those addresses in the list so they can be removed

This is getting to be a serious problem.  My domain will be soon
blacklisted, if it's not already.  It's very, very hard to get out of
blacklisting, especially if the spammers are still using your email

Here are just a few of the address they used:  

Please give this some serious thought and see what you can do to
prevent further occurances.
