Error when forwarding SMS by Mail

Hello to everybody!

I installed playsms according to the excellent howto and things are working fine so far.

But there is a problem with forwarding a recieved sms by email:

I installed postfix on localhost, so I could leave the SMTP-Part of ./web/config.php untouched. Postfix ist working right. I tested writing mails via telnet on port 25. This works well for user “komodo”, who starts the playsms-server.

But forwarding sms via mail ends with an error-message in playsms.log. The following log shows what happens, when I use the menu-item “simulate incoming sms” in playsms:

Does anybody have an idea why this error is generated by module smtp_message.php?

What does “sendmail # end with error:it was not specified a valid From header” mean?

Thanks for your help and ideas, community.

Cheers, Jens.

In the meantime I tested different userrights/groups.
I also tested different “From”-Adresses, but nothing changed the behaviour. The error-message still appears.

Any hints? Any ideas? Do you need futher information?

Cheers, Jens
