Gmail now blocking Smartermail IDS Rule messages
Problem reported by Adam De Lay - December 20, 2018 at 9:23 AM
We have several rules set up to notify us of internal spammers and some of our agents were not getting the email notifications.  When I looked at the logs, the emails being sent were rejected by Gmail because the IDS emails have no "FROM" address.  So our agents and administrators are not being notified about possible spammers.

RSP: 550-5.7.1 [14] Messages missing a valid address in From:
04:09:47 [97122] RSP: 550 5.7.1 header, or having no From: header, are not accepted. i36si1995065qvi.129 - gsmtp

This happens with v15 too.

The no "From" address thing has been a problem for a very long time (even SmarterTrack discards them), we're just now seeing problems with Gmail rejecting the emails.

Yeah this has been a problem for quite sometime for me as well. I am also on v15. The workaround for me, since I monitor this stuff, I just have it email me as a SMS message on my cellphone.

We can't get SMS forwards through either, and I'm assuming it's for the same reason. This really needs to be fixed.
