As designed $config['enableMail'] doesn't affect XenForo_CronEntry_EmailBounce


Well-known member
I set $config['enableMail'] == false in config.php, however the cronjob XenForo_CronEntry_EmailBounce is still executed, I get this in the admin error log:

Zend_Mail_Storage_Exception: cannot login, user or password wrong - library/Zend/Mail/Storage/Imap.php:279
library/XenForo/Model/EmailBounce.php(292): Zend_Mail_Storage_Imap->__construct(Array)

The option there specifically relates to sending mail -- and it actually relates to board generated mail as well.

Having it not check the bounce handler server isn't an expected thing that this covers.
