Problem with News Mailer

edited July 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
A friend has recently had a problem with their server (hosting issue) and had to reinstate Vanilla. I just tried to use Newsmailer to mail people to let them know the forum is back up. Instead I got this error: A fatal, non-recoverable error has occurred Technical information (for support personel): Error Message Unable to send email. The SMTP server reported the following error: Affected Elements Email.ServerParse(); The error occurred on or near: 550 : Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual alias table The version of Vanilla is 1.0.3 (yes I know it needs updating). Could someone please suggest how to fix this? Thanks.

    Are you using SMTP or the standard sendmail to send emails from your forum? Do you know if any of the users got the e-mail?

    I used it from the forum, standard send mail. No users got the notification. This has worked fine in the past. Does anyone have any ideas how to address this? Thanks.

    I would guess it's a problem caused by one of the user's email addresses. How many users do you have? If you do something e.g. request a password does the email come through or do you get the same error?

    Would be great if there were some updates for this... I have 15,000+ members in my Vanilla community for my site and it doesn't quite work the way I want it to for that many members. having something more manageable, with something maybe like a cronjob to manage the mass amount of users would be nice.
