Hi! I am getting this error when trying to send email from a live server. Slim Application Error

Hi! Can someone please help me with this issue?

The application could not run because of the following error:


Type: Swift_RfcComplianceException Message: Address in mailbox given [Nizam Uddin] does not comply with RFC 2822, 3.6.2. File: /home/sysintech/nizamsikder/slimproject/vendor/swiftmailer/swiftmailer/lib/classes/Swift/Mime/Headers/MailboxHeader.php Line: 348

This post from github looks like it might get you started.

The four main pointers:

  • Incorrect email address format in to,from or reply-to fields
  • Email address or host does not exist
  • From email address should be valid working email address
  • Not fully qualified domain name used in from email address

Essentially just go round, make sure you don't have any typos and everything you think exists actually exists :)

Thanks Tom.
