Mailing List "Length cannot be less than zero"
Problem reported by Marc Funaro - August 7, 2015 at 1:04 PM
Submitted
SmarterMail 14.1.5675 / Windows 2012 Server
 
Created a mailing list with two email addresses.  Send message to list from email address 1, list broadcasts back to address 1 and 2.
 
Reply to first message using email address 1.  To address is the list address, as configured.  Message is never broadcast out to either address 1 or 2.
 
Checked Delivery log; for the time period of the missing message, the log reads:
 
[2015.08.07] 15:46:22 [73433] Delivery started for [SENDER_ADDRESS] at 3:46:22 PM
[2015.08.07] 15:46:32 [73433] Skipping spam checks: User authenticated
[2015.08.07] 15:46:37 [73433] Starting local delivery to [LIST_ADDRESS]
[2015.08.07] 15:46:37 [73433] Processing Mailing List: [LIST_ADDRESS]
[2015.08.07] 15:46:38 [73433] Delivery for [SENDER_ADDRESS] to [LIST_ADDRESS] has completed (Delivered)
[2015.08.07] 15:46:38 [73433] Exception: Length cannot be less than zero.
[2015.08.07] 15:46:38 [73433] Delivery finished for [SENDER_ADDRESS] at 3:46:38 PM    [id:-887530573433]
 
This could explain why i've had some clients complain that some of their list messages go missing/never received by the group.  Help!

Marc,
 
What is you mailing list's Allowed Posters setting?
 
Can you edit the mailing list and check under the "System Messages" tab.  What is the current Content for "insufficientposintgpermissionemail"?
 
In the email message that you are sending, are you using any custom fields (subscriber fields or built-in mailing list variables)?
