Email Address Separator used in Spider


When we try to send email from Spider to a single person, it works, but when we try to send it to multiple recipients then it fails with “Please contact administrator”


By default Spider sends email with ; separated addresses between multiple recipients, set in the Spider configuration file. To change this find the key in appSettingsLocal.config of EMAIL_ADDRESS_SEPERATOR, it can have value of either ; or ,  .

Most email exchange servers and Google apps will support , as a separator. This line in the config file is used to set what should be used as email address seperator. Some mail servers prefer , and others ; .

<add key=”EMAIL_ADDRESS_SEPERATOR” value=; />
