I didn't get one. My spam filters were disabled in the forwarder, as well. Trying to resend the email results in:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function error() in /var/www/html/gtx0.com/register.php on line 25

doneFixed!



Also emails still don't work right, bit of a difficult problem so you don't actually need a confirmation email to activate a new account anymore.

What part of it is difficult? Having issues sending emails themselves, or?

Sending emails is easy. Getting past gmail's spam filter is not.

I have no trouble getting past it. I actually use it to bounce emails so that they get through to those with yahoo and such (i'm using postfix). If it's getting in and just landing in junk, that's the users fault and all other sites have that problem, anyway, and people should be willing and able to look in their junk folder.

It's fixable but difficult to fix apparently.

What specifically is the issue you're alluding to?

The specific problem is that gmail flags messages from GTX0 as spam. I've tried various things:

  • Copying the headers from phpbb, which goes through even when sent from this server (though maybe not from GTX0 itself? idk need to test)

  • Adding various DNS records to make the mailfrom address seem more legitimate

  • Following various guides that google has put out to address this problem (see above solution)

  • Trying to get GTX0 itself on google's whitelist

    Nothing has worked yet, though I keep trying intermittently.

    Most just want your SMTP to use signed connnections and not allow forwarding from remote to remote (SPAM). I'm using an email address that's blacklisted by most email providers, but since i bounce off google it gets through and at least lands in spam boxes (to avoid landing in spam boxes is impossible and even facebook emails will land in spam folders). You just want to keep from getting rejected entirely.

    @Kohlrak: How do you get your emails to bounce off google? Maybe I can do that.

    The short answer is that you get a gmail account, there's a setting in there somewhere to allow forwarding emails. Then you need to get a signed certificate (you can self-sign for google, so that's not an issue) and set the smtp server to use the certificate and to forward all outgoing emails to google instead of sending them directly to recipients.

    It's been a while since i've done it with postfix (probably have to do it again soon, though), so i'll just google it and see if i find instructions that i remember. I distinctly remember it being a pain in the rear, since there's always an outdated tutorial on it and alot of people forget to restart their servers after changing config files. The process then gets difficult thanks to google changing policies, but the real issue is basically that every step of the process is done way more difficult than it needs to be, and no one has yet to actually do a simple tool to do all the steps for you, which surprises me, but I don't want to have to maintain it since the process is painful enough without the tool.

    That said, if you follow the whole process verbatim (if you have postfix), it'll probably work. It's more annoying than it is difficult, and once you do it, you're good for a few years until the certificates expire, then you gotta do it over again.

    Setting up squirrelmail to work in conjunction with this, that's a whole other beast.
