well this is not a bug, but a note to say this happened to me ...

I have a few members now so i decided to send a newsletter out !! (as you do) Laughing

Tested it to my self looked great so i decided to send it to all registered members ....

Now i found out that it sent the newsletter 3 times instead of just once !! why ?

well beacuse 1 of my registered members was using a email address that required verification... and it was being returned by his host !!

Ive had to email him and remove his email address so as to prevent this from happaning in the future but i thought i would let you know or others be aware of this little issue !!

Thanks for a awsome Module

I do not understand the scenario. I use email verification here as well and I had just received a newsletter some time back from another site. I received it only once.

You should have received a verification email where you should have only had to click on it to verify that you are "human". Then the email newsletter will go through. This should get to this person only once.

I guess I need to understand better what happened and how he got three. Confused

All this is saying is that the users you sent the email too have either "Box Trapper" or something similar and it is asking you to verify that you are a "human" sending this instead of a auto-spammer. All you need to do a reply and all should be well.

Your recipient should only have received ONE newsletter. Now, if they forward their emails to another email address, they could get one newsletter for the original email address and one for each forwarded to address.

I honestly do not believe the HTML Newsletter module sent more than one newsletter per registered user.

lol yeah i had thought about that...

ive only sent 3 in the last 6 months

Ive also heard that the spam blocker module has/is banning all of the UK's BT (British Telecoms's) IPS's lol and considering there the biggest provider in the UK its going to be banning rather alot of peeps ... ive removed it from my site atm as i was getting banned from my own site and so were alot of my freinds on BT

I'm going off topic now but thats because a lot of BT's IP's have been blacklisted through their users sending spam.
As mentioned in the forums on my site, all you need to do is empty the rbl array in the config file to stop it contacting the third party blacklists Wink
