@GJC

Agreed - there will be no fix as far as I can see due to the PayPal ip ranges changing.

Agree totally - I have IP check switched off for years, on all my customer sites - up until now, no problem has occurred .

Before making that IPN change to 'No', the strange thing is that some orders were going through as PAID and some were not.

The best check is to see if the money is in your Paypal account
This is a very good point!

Some of the forum information I read about this issue say that the 'next VM update' would fix this issue, but this was a forum I read dated 2019. This is why I mentioned this statement.

But, yes, I don't seem to be getting any of those emails so it looks like this is the "fix".

I assume in the 'next' VM update is to have this IPN set to 'No'. That would certainly be an "update fix", so to speak.

Once again, thanks for all you kind help guys. I much appreciate it.

there has been for years a small set of IPs that paypal used for IPNs .. these have always been listed ( and still are) in the plugin and used for approvals of the check.

Then ~ 18 months ago Paypal increased the number of possible IPs hugely which now makes the check unsustainable...

Have requested Max to make the next release with the default set to no
