Receiving the same email, sometimes months apart

  • Answered
So I built a website where customers can request a quote. The mystery is that client will receive the quote and then days, weeks, sometimes months later they will receive the quote again. Exact duplicate of the original email BUT the customer is not resending it. This does not happen with every quote, just some. Here is the form: [code]

Name: *required

Phone: *required

Email:

Address:

How can we help?

[/code] On the request-quote-submit.php page I [u][b]currently[/b][/u] have this: [code] IsSMTP(); $mail->SMTPDebug = 0; $mail->SMTPAuth = true; $mail->SMTPSecure = "tls"; $mail->Host = "mail.smtp.com"; $mail->Port = 2082; $mail->Username = "***"; $mail->Password = "***"; $mail->SetFrom($email, $name); $mail->AddReplyTo($email,$name); $mail->Subject = "A new request for quote!"; $mail->AltBody = "To view the message, please use an HTML compatible email viewer!"; // optional, comment out and test if ($name == "" or $phone == "") {;?>

"; $mail_body .= "Name: " . $name . "
"; $mail_body .= "Phone: " . $phone . "
"; $mail_body .= "Email: " . $email . "
"; $mail_body .= "Address: " . $address . "
"; $mail_body .= "Problem: " . $problem . "
"; $mail->MsgHTML($mail_body); $mail->AddAddress('[email protected]***.com'); $mail->AddAddress('[email protected]***.com'); $mail->AddAddress('[email protected]***.com'); if(!$mail->Send()) { echo "Mailer Error: " . $mail->ErrorInfo; } else { echo "
Thanks for filling out our form. Someone from *** will be in contact shortly."; } $mail->clearAddresses(); ?> [/code] I say currently because in the example I will show below I was using php mail and my VPS Server's SMTP to send the original and when the client received the duplicate emails [b][i][u]5 months later[/u][/i][/b] I has already switched to using phpmailer and SMTP.com. Here are the headers for the emails: [b][u]Original email sent 9/15/16:[/u][/b] Received: from [10.115.3.14] (helo=smtp.maileig.com) by bosmailscan05.eigbox.net with esmtp (Exim) id 1bkbns-00017l-Tv for [email protected]***.com; Thu, 15 Sep 2016 14:54:32 -0400 Received: from bosmailscan05.eigbox.net by bosmailscan05.eigbox.net (Dovecot) with LMTP id KhzdBVTu2ldLCwAAi0ZokQ for ; Thu, 15 Sep 2016 14:54:33 -0400 Received: from vps17664.inmotionhosting.com ([104.152.109.190]) by bosimpinc14 with bizsmtp id juuW1t02F46WzJ001uuXJl; Thu, 15 Sep 2016 14:54:32 -0400 Received: from maconw5 by vps17664.inmotionhosting.com with local (Exim 4.87) (envelope-from ) id 1bkbnV-0003ZL-NJ; Thu, 15 Sep 2016 14:54:29 -0400 Return-Path: Reply-To: From: To: , Subject: A new request for quote!

Hello phishyman2,

Thank you for your question about your emails being sent twice or more. As this has to do with making custom changes to the coding of your site or sites, it is outside of the scope of support that we are able to provide. You will want to work with an experienced web developer, if you don't have one already, to assist you in resolving this.

Gratefully,
Casey B.
