IP address visible in e-mails from answering persons (Bugs)

by Floxx, Thursday, July 09, 2009, 22:28 (3722 days ago)

If an MLF 2.1 user allocate to get an e-mail in case of an answer to a posting the incoming e-mails are containing the IP address of the anwering persons!

Because the IP address is relevant for privacy (eg looking for location with the Geo IP Tool) I would like to stop the insertion of the IP (and the other header informations) in the e-mail.

Any idea how to?

includes/functions.inc.php → function my_mail(), line 2068 (v. 2.1.1):

$headers .= "X-Sender-IP: ".$_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"] . $mail_header_separator;

Hi Floxx,

I realy don't see your problem with sending the IP address and hostname in the header of an email.

If I use any emailprogram, these data is sent as well.

Taking these data out of the header might be handy to ommit spamfilters.....

Regards,
Paul
