That depends on what you're doing. Here's why I can't provide feedback: 1) Your code isn't at all complete, the foreach isn't even finished.
Not what matters here, I just snipped a bit of code in here. I'm not even concerned about it because the code works fine. I just need some work on a query.
2) Where does the $addresses variable come from and
what are you trying todo with it?
Again it's a snipped code. $addresses collects information from an emails. It searches for special characters only, if no matches it does nothing, if a match it runs a query. So looks for matches such as @, +, _ for email addresses in the original email sent, minus the headers.
3) What is the mysql table and its columns supposed to represent?
What is the mysql table? I'm not sure what your
asking here. What's it for? For my site. Why do you
need me to explain that? I think my query explains
what's going on here. Another person responded to me
about this and new exactly what I was trying to do. But for the record it's for a bouncing email script. To handle bounced emails, again it's only a bit of
snipped code, the rest is fine.
4) What is this code supposed to accomplish?
Bounced emails, if an email is bounced it will do a search and do something if and flag account if it's bad. If it finds an email that is not in the DB it also does nothing. (spam emails mainly go into that account)
As for the query. I want to change a value of a field when it reaches a certian value. So was wondering if it was safe to change a value in one field once it reaches a set value.
Okay with my program site emails that have a email_setting of:
0 - All emails go to external inboxes and internal inboxes 1 - All emails go to external inboxes and not internal 2 - All emails go to internal inboxes and not external
Each user can toggle what they want, ext. is real email addresses... int. is the internal one with the account which is not an email just an inbox.
So when it reaches a value of -5 means it's bounced 5 times therefore needs to be set to a lower value so emails are not sent.
So I have:
field1 - is used for 0 , 1 , 2 value to send emails to inboxes internal and external. Anything set in negative figures no internal or external email will be sent to that user.
field2 - is used to track the number of times the email has bounced. So when it reaches 5 I need to handle it and reset filed1 to a negative value.
So regarding my first example, it's no longer used by me and won't go back to it. But is example 2 going to work?
UPDATE users SET email_setting='-1' WHERE emailerror > 5
will that set email_setting to -1 if emailerror has a value of 5 or more?
Yes, it will.
