“Drupal emails gone astray”



May 17th, 2006 by Kat Kingsley-Hughes

“My Drupal password emails are considered spam by my spamfilter so I found them in the spam folder. Why is this?”

Your Drupal installation isn’t set up correctly to send email, so, because important information is missing from the header of the email, your filter is regarding them as spam. In Drupal go to administration, click settings, general settings and type in an email address that the installation can use to send email from. This should fix the problem.

However, doing the above will probably generate the following error: “The directory files does not exist.” Create a directory in your drupal root called “files”. Set CHMOD to 777 on this folder.
