HI I am receiving the following emails from Paypal for every transaction (Although the transactions are going through fine)

"An error with your payment method paypal on your store XXXXX. The details are logged in the file paypal.1.log.php"

I have checked the log file and this is the result:

"ERROR IPN notification with invalid amount or currency or email: Array"

Any ideas how to stop these emails?

Bit odd as the transactions are completing fine!

normally means a failure to "Confirm" the order in VM and caused by a mis-match in values .. often a cent lost in rounding etc

turn on paypal vm logging to see what is failing
