Cpanel email spammed?

Before 4 months a problem has occurred to my hosted email.

My clients were trying to send me an email to my hosted email (info@mydomain.com) and always were getting an error like this bellow although I received the email.

My web hosting provider assured me that nothing happened to my cpanel package. I have some other packages in this same server and everything is working perfect.

My clients keep complaining that they receive this error when trying to send me an email although I get the emails.

In addition to this problem, a lot of spam emails delivered to my inbox every day.

I hired someone to fix my spf and dkim but nothing has changed.

Have you any idea what happened?

Has WP 5.7.2 possibly changed the email process, specifically, does anyone know where to find a list of PHPMAILER_EXCEPTION_CODES?

Been using a Form plugin for several years (forms haven’t changed for some time) and up until recently these forms have been fully functional … specifically … they are supposed to send both a submission email and a confirmation email after each form is submitted … for some unknown reason, the confirmation emails have stopped working

Wondering if one of, or combination of, 4 recent system updates may be involved;

  • WP 5.7.2
  • Centos 7.9
  • PHP 7.4
  • VFB Pro 3.4.4

So far I have;

  • regressed PHP to 7.2 (no change)
  • did a file comparison of the Plugin Update which indicates all changes appear to be unrelated to email
  • added some "log to file" debug statements to wp/wp-includes/pluggable.php function wp_mail() which indicate the plugin’s confirmation Email Call is throwing an Exception Error at line 535 $ mail_error_data[‘phpmailer_exception_code’] = 1

Any thoughts as to what does this exception code might mean?

The confirmation email does have; To, Subject, From, and Body/Headers

The Plugin’s Submission Email works properly

Could the content of an email possibly be throwing this process?

function getcode() doesn’t reveal any meaning for this exception code

Frustratingly hard to fix something without knowing what is actually causing the issue

Are there any other methods of debugging these kinds of issues without brute force debug statements?

Site transfer from local server to remote hosting – e-mail, OS and CPanel

Regarding an e-mail… It’s set in BIND9 zone file residing on my local computer. I want to use exactly the same address, but from a remote server. Right now I use Postfix-Dovecot on my local Ubuntu machine. Maybe it’s just easier to rename a zone file or something… And them to set up same e-mail account on hosting? As per SSL, I use Truecrypt locally… I think it also works on hosting. Though it’s something I’ll have to look into, ‘cos I have no clue. Hosting support probably will tell. With db it’s an easy part. They have Hepsie CP on VPS coming pre-installed. Though, of course I would prefer CPanel, but they charge extra for it. The weird part though… I requested Ubuntu OS on VPS hosting, and it says that it’s Ubuntu in hosting info page. BUT… When I open SSH terminal from within my hosting account page… And check this:

cat /etc/os-release 

I see this:

NAME="CentOS Linux" 

VERSION="7 (Core)" ID="centos" ID_LIKE="rhel fedora" VERSION_ID="7" PRETTY_NAME="CentOS Linux 7 (Core)" ANSI_COLOR="0;31" CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:centos:centos:7" HOME_URL="https://www.centos.org/" BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.centos.org/"

Does it mean, it’s actually CentOS and NOT Ubuntu? And if so… may I and can I install Cpanel myself on hosting then?

DNS Settings and the TXT record for authorizing email sending from the domain

Last night, I added a DNS record to my domain to allow Mailchimp to send emails as an official/authorized source.

enter image description here

It doesn’t seem to have totally worked, Mailchimp is sending emails but they are not being received – I believe this is because my SPF record is not properly authorizing Mailchimp’s servers to send on behalf of my domain.

I did a domain check at mxtoolbox and it’s showing "Multiple SPF Records Found":

enter image description here

Is it the ~all and -all that is causing an issue? It should be possible to have multiple TXT DNS records, right? Am I messing up the way I have added these TXT records?

I’d like to continue to be able to send email via Google/Gmail (this is working) but I also would like to authorize Mailchimp to send emails on behalf of my domain (hosted with GoDaddy)

Any suggestions for the setup I am trying to accomplish here? Thank you so much!

WordPress doesn’t send a notification email when submitting a comment using REST API

When I submit a comment on the WordPress website, it sends me a notification email.

What should I do to make WordPress send a notification email when I submit a comment with REST API?

Catch-All + Inbound Routing E-mail [closed]

Mailgun offers catch-all for all domains against a cloud pricing , in my case 2 dollars per month. This works well for my private domains.

Email routing however (so that you can forward to a@mydomain.com to a@gmail.com and b@mmydomain.com to ma@gmail.com) costs 420 dollar per year.

Is there a provider which lets me add all domains with catch-all and WITH e-mail routing against the same "pay by usage" (2 dollar versus 35 dollar per month) for low usages (I receive around 3000 e-mails over all domains per month, 1500 are stopped by spam filter and 1500 go through and are actually for 90% also spam 🙂 ).

(and i do not want to pay for 150 inbound mails that i actually read per month pay 35 dollar per month) (so pay 25 cent per e-mail i read) (as i now pay around 1 cent for every email i read).

(this is not a discussion on which is the best, this is a question on: does one exist at all)

ScrapeBox Email Scraper

Hellow !

Please tell me:
    – how to limit the search for letters to one section, I’m interested in the section (for example, so that I could get all Email only from the “Jobs” section).
    – how you can receive Email from this section (“Jobs”) and the URLs where they are located (for example, the “Email | URL” table or the “email, url” list).

As a result, I need to get a list or table in which there is an Email only from the “Jobs” section, and the URL where this email is located.

CPT email notification including only new value custom fields

I have a custom post type «teams» with a set of different custom fields (ACF). I’m not a big coder, but hope to get some guidance in how to create a function that sends an email including ACF every time one of the teams (CPT) is updated by a WP-user.

I’ve found plugins that accomplish this, but unfortunately I need a bit more complex solution. The problem is the email should ONLY include custom fields that actually has changed. So I need to loop through and check each custom field for any change, and then only include the fields that has a new value in the final email.

I guess I’m asking if this is a very difficult task, or could it be done in a rather simple way? All sources would be very appreciated!
