Emails being sent to for subscription emails

  • rossagrant


    Hi guys,

    I’m not sure exactly why this is happening, but I’m guessing it’s due to the way subscription emails are sent out and the no-reply address grabbing the site info incorrectly.

    Am I right in assuming that when there are subscriptions to a forum/ topic, they now get sent out as one email with everyone Bcc’d?

    Anyway, when someone posts a new topic on my site – and I guess there are subscribers – I say guess, as I don’t think there is a way of us seeing subscriber numbers – an email must get generated to notify them.

    Well I’ve been getting non-deliverable emails back at me saying that one of these emails was sent to"> and that the address doesn’t exist.

    Well with the www. in there it won’t exist.

    Why would BBPress be trying to send an email to a noreply address in the first place?

    Could someone explain – it’s probably obvious, so sorry in advance!

    Thanks so much for your time!

    Ross 🙂

    Hello, everybody, this is my resolution:
    first, i have my own plugin, named ‘sc64’. then add these php code to my plugin.

    function scap_bbp_no_reply_email(){
    	$admin_email = get_option('admin_email');
        return $admin_email;

    the default noreply email address has changed to admin_email that configured in wordpress.

    i hope this helps.



    I’m having this same problem. I’m using the plugin WP SMTP, I wonder if that’s it.



    I have the same problem. Any solution to this?

    OK guys, probably not really relevant now, but I experience the same issue and found this thread.

    Here is solution I use:

    add_filter( 'wp_mail', function( $args = array() ) {
    	 * If WordPress wants to send an email to bbp_get_do_not_reply_address() we check
    	 * if $search_header is set. If it is, we take its value (email address) and set
    	 * it as "to" address. Also we unset the $search_header.
    	$search_header = 'Bcc:';
    	if ( bbp_get_do_not_reply_address() === $args['to'] && is_array( $args['headers'] ) ) {
    		foreach ( $args['headers'] as $key => $header ) {
    			if ( false !== stripos( $header, $search_header ) ) {
    				$args['to'] = trim( str_replace( $search_header, '', $header ) );
    				unset( $args['headers'][ $key ] );
    	return $args;
    } );



    @lemmonaid you’re a lifesaver! Thank you very much for sharing.
