strange wiremail duplicate sending


Recommended Posts

Trying to work out why my module is send two emails when it should be sending one. I have a log statement at the end, it only shows up once in the logs where as i'm still recieving two emails!!? Which is why I'm confused:

$mail = wireMail();

// set a default email address if none set
$mail->to($u->email)->from($this->siteEmail); // all calls can be chained

$mail->subject('New Unread message');
$numSent = $mail->send();

if($numSent) $this->wire('log')->save('mm_emails', 'New email sent to: ' . $u->email);

I'm running PW 3.0.165

class MembersMessaging extends WireData implements Module {

	public static function getModuleInfo() {
		return array(
			'title' => "Members messaging" ...blah blah
			'singular' => true,
			'requires' => array("PHP>=5.4.0", "ProcessWire>=3.0.1, MembersMessagingProcess"),

A) Do you use the core WireMail class or one of the WireMail modules?

B) Regardless of that, may be there is somewhere (in config or where ever) set a CC or BCC address header?

thats the strange thing. the code above is the only place i'm using it, I tried twice to assure I haven't called the function twice (hence the single log message). And the site is a fresh install, no other modules installed.

Try logging all outgoing mails with this little helper which is more precise:

$wire->addHookAfter('WireMail::send', function($event) {
  $mail = $event->object;
    "SENT ($event->return of " . count($mail->to) . "), " .
    "SUBJECT ($mail->subject), " .
    "TO (" .  implode(", ", $mail->to) . "), " .
    "FROM ($mail->from)"


What triggers the send function?

Thanks for that! Ok I give up, maybe its my server then... I'm seeing only one logged message there too, but reciveing two still. Will try some other email addresses and report back ?

I doubt it is an email server issue or wiremail issue. The logs show one email sent but yet you receive two. Correct?

What email client are you using and do you have any rules defined for that email address?

Same, same. I tried WireMail AND standard PHP mail(). Both are sending twice. In my case the code in incuded with HannaCode. And yes, I am checking for a hidden field $input->post->sent ... if the form is sent... ??

Experiencing the same lately, but not with every email sent from the same block of code which is all the more curious as it's the same email, just sometimes it'll send once, sometimes twice.

I'm using WireMailSMTP with Postmark but will check it with the WireMailPostmark module when I get a chance to see if it's something in WireMailSMTP (unlikely I'm sure, just ruling things out).

Had a bit of time to look into my issue and it's only started since I changed some code, plus that code is run via a Cron job as the guest user so too many variables to check at the moment, but the fault doesn't seem to be in the system or any module at least so that's good.

It's on a CRON job so not a form, but also it's only happening occasionally, not for every email generated by that function.

100% it's since my new code so it's some weird combination of CRON and something else.

Is the code in a template file and does that template use pw-regions?

I had a problem where a form was defined as variable at the top of a template file outside of the pw-regions, and then echoed inside a region later on on the same file. This caused it send mails twice each time someone used the form.
