Default Error when sending mail using the AjaxMail example


I've implemented the AjaxMail example from the book and I've encountered an issuse with it when trying to send mail. I get the following error:

"Language string failed to load: recipients_failed"

I'm going to spend some time debugging the code but I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts about this?

Can either of you let me know what you're doing to get this error? I'm not able to see it.

What version of PHP are you running against? What are you doing when the error occurs and what form does the error message take (is it in an alert, is it output onto the page, etc.)?

I've managed to fix this error but I've noticed another bug in the regex used for splitting names and addresses in the name <address> format.

Anyway, the first error... Unfortunately it's been about two weeks since I posted and I can't remember fully what I did to fix it. I think it turned out that there was an issue with the SQL select statements in AjaxMail.inc.php. They were selecting from table 'From' - with apostrophes - while my DB fieldname didn't have the ' ' marks and I had issue trying to insert them in MySQL 3.2. Eventually I just changed the query located at lines 138 - 140 from

$query = "select MessageId, `To`, `From`, CC, BCC, Subject, Date, ";
$query .= "Message, HasAttachments, Unread from AjaxMailMessages where";
$query .= " MessageId=$messageId";


$query = "select * from AjaxMailMessages where";
$query .= " MessageId=$messageId";

Hopefully this will fix your problem Doug.

There also seems to be another bug on line 315 in the sendMail function. The regex isn't working correctly and will return nothing... so e-mails will not get sent as there are no addresses.

My regex is bad but I changed line 315 from

preg_match("/(.*?)<?(.*?)>?/i", $to, $matches);


preg_match("/([a-z][a-z0-9_.-\/]*@[^\s\"\)\?<>]+\.[a-z]{2,6})/i", $to, $matches);

and line 318 to $mailer->AddAddress($matches[1], '');

and I can now get e-mails to send (but no names will appear).

If anyone could provide assisting in fixing the regex preg_match("/(.*?)<?(.*?)>?/i", $to, $matches);, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks a lot.
