The MU forums have moved to

activation email has double angle brackets in From (2 posts)

    if the site email is, the From header in the activation mail is as follows:

    From: "<>" <<>>

    this causes the activation mail to be rejected by mail servers. the expected result should be

    From: "" <>

    the email in the mysql database is recorded correctly as without additional angle brackets

    Installation as follows:

    wordpressmu 1.2.1 (subdomains)
    CentOS 4.4 (redhat enterprise clone)
    exim 4.63
    mysql 4.1.21
    php 5.2.1

    new signups via wp-signup.php

    any ideas how to fix this? thanks.

    Don't know if this is still relevant, but I saw this issue, and it turns out that the Site Name/Title isn't stored properly during installation. You have to go to Site Options and reset it, then hit save, and this problem should go away.
