When sending a test email in CiviMail and we go to send a test we get the following: Error in call to Mailing_send_test : Validation failed for: "(INVALID)" <(INVALID)>.

We are running Civi Ver 4.16 on WordPress 4.5.4.

Email for other processes is fine and I have switched to SMTP and the same error occurs. Same issue occurs on production server & dev server (different boxes). The dev server hosts several WP/Civi site with no issues in CiviMail.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Here is the backtrace:

  • It is remarkable that the call to Mail_mail->send has Kilakwa Associates, LLC as input instead of an email address. – Kainuk - CiviCooP Nov 11 '16 at 19:43

This issue was related to the from address. This install had been upgraded from 4.4 and CiviMail had not been used since then. The from_name and from_email fields in the civicrm_mailings table showed as (INVALID). When looking at the from address setup in Civi it looked fine. I retyped the entry and everything is fine now. ot sure what caused the from address to become invalid?
