Hello,

The host One.com has suspended a domain because of the item e-mail button (send page to a friend). The button generates a form that's not spam protected. And One.com objects to this and suspends the domain from outgoing email.

Any suggestions on what I can do?

Best regards

K2 merely uses what Joomla Articles use on that part. That form is not even in K2...

I would recommend simply hiding that feature if you're too dependant on that host.

For the record, we've developed K2 since 2009. This is the first report on that matter ever.

Thanks for your reply.

I wasn't sure what component generated this tool. I just assumed it was a part of K2. since it's controlled within this extension. Thank you for bringing me out if my misconception.

I have never experienced this action from a host. It totally surprised me. And it doesn't matter if i disable the feature, the host still claims that the mailto form is a threat.

But I will pursue a solution on some general Joomla forum.

Best regards

Luckily, there's an extension for that: extensions.joomla.org/extension/dd-disable-mailto/

Problem solved :)
