VERP Support

Postby hola » 12:19am, Fri 07 Apr, 2006

Hello all,

I would love to see Variable Envelope Return Paths supported within this awesome application.

Cheers

I would also like VERP support. It seems like this is something PHPList should already support but I cannot find any mention of it so I assume it doesn't. Any word from the devs on this?

I have been told by my host that VERP must be supported in order for me to use PHPList! So for now I cannot use it. In all other ways it is ideal for my needs. Please add this support soon!

this should be a piece of cake

phplist (at least 2.10.2) uses phpmailer actually to send the message, so a quick patch there should do the trick. VERP is just telling the mail relays to enable VERP addressing, which is done during the smtp message submission.

From http://www.postfix.org/VERP_README.html

MAIL FROM:<sender> XVERP

So, in phpmailer's class.smtp.php, just change the line which does the MAIL FROM bit and you should be good.

I am assuming that postfix's syntax to have verp enabled on a message is standard, not sure though. My relays run postfix so it should work for me :)

Enabling VERP support in PHPlist - Seeking Help

Postby mm » 10:16pm, Mon 09 Apr, 2007

Hello.
I am trying to implement VERP addressing in PHPList. There are several references across the forum to enabling VERP, including this very topic, but unfortunately nowhere is it made clear HOW this might be done. Several references to enabling VERP in phplist have been made by OSoell throughout this forum (including topic #’s 5090 & 6726), the latter pertaining to his ‘faster processqueue’ mod. Additionally, he has provided a patch in mantis (id# 8436) for enabling VERP processing in processbounces, and although it does not explain how VERP addressing was implemented for outgoing mail, it does imply that this was the case simply by virtue of the fact that it’s purpose is to enable VERP processing of bounced mail.
If someone can offer me some insight as to what is involved for enabling VERP addressing in PHPList I would be ever so grateful. I’ve spent many days now going through this forum and feel lost with regards to this subject.

I’ve included the links below as references. It’s likely however that as a new member to this forum, I will not be able to include links in my post. I am sorry about that.

Many thanks,
Yours,
Michael Markus

**Please forgive my duplicate post (under both topic #'s 5059 & 6726)**
I must determine whether or not VERP support in PHPList is a possibility in order to proceed. Thank you for understanding

that last post indeed includes directions on how to enable VERP.

edit class.smtp.php to change the "MAIL FROM" part of the handshake to add "XVERP" at the end of the line.

You also need to make sure that your ISP does VERP.

That is all.

I am able to use VERP with Postfix after the following changes. Phplist version is 2.10.11.

1) In lists/config/config.php (line #70)
$message_envelope='phplist@domainname.com';

1) In lists/admin/phpmailer/class.smtp.php, the "mail from:" line (line # 591):
fputs($this->smtp_conn,"MAIL FROM:<" . $from . ">" . " XVERP" . $this->CRLF);
#fputs($this->smtp_conn,"MAIL FROM:<" . $from . ">" . $this->CRLF);

2) In lists/admin/sendemaillib.php using SMTP (line # 610)
$mail->IsSMTP();
# $mail->IsSMTP();

YES!!!! This would add greatly to the IP reputations of those using phplist! IS there a user friendly way of doing this? A plugin or patch?

Anything new on this? I have been made aware that a hacker can in essence unsubscribe all your contacts successfully with a script.

Is VERP support in the latest version? The next?

The mods in this thread and HERE seem confusing.

Looking forward to hearing an answer.

This conversation is four years old. There are moderators here but I doubt the admins are paying any attention.

It may be 4 years old, but according to my programmer friends, VERP is picking up out there in the email world.

Perhaps it is time to examine again. Is there any solutions on VERP with PHP list?

Thanks

I don't understand what you mean with passwords.

The system has an admin password.

My subscribers have no passwords.
