Error while using WFFM save action Send Email Campaign Message

Last time while I was playing with EXM and WFFM I have experienced strange issue. I am using Sitecore 8.1 Update-2, EXM 3.2.1 and WFFM 8.1 Update-2. I have added Send Email Campaign Message Save Action to my form, set up message and destination e-mail.



After form submit I got an error:

 5276 15:43:58 INFO  AUDIT (extranet\Anonymous): [WFFM] Form {B9C58542-7A02-4191-94B1-186C87EC74D9} is saving to db   5276 15:43:58 WARN  [WFFM] Object reference not set to an instance of an object.   Exception: System.NullReferenceException   Message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.   Source: Sitecore.Forms.Custom      at Sitecore.Form.Submit.SendStandardMessage.Send(AdaptedResultList fields)      at Sitecore.Forms.Core.Dependencies.DefaultImplActionExecutor.ExecuteSaving(ID formID, ControlResult[] fields, IActionDefinition[] actionDefinitions, Boolean simpleAdapt, ID sessionID)   5276 15:43:58 WARN  [WFFM] The 'Send Email Campaign Message[id={EB59E095-5B61-4C04-8286-9469DAFD9A13}]' save action failed: We experienced a technical difficulty while processing your request. Your data may not have been correctly saved.   5276 15:43:58 WARN  [WFFM] Web Forms for Marketers: an exception: We experienced a technical difficulty while processing your request. Your data may not have been correctly saved. has occured while trying to execute an action.

NullReferenceException was rather strange for me, so I started deep investigation. I have decompiled some WFFM and EXM classes and I found the problem. Some missing checks caused that issue.

The main cause of that situation is the EXM Message is being in state other than Active. Sitecore Support provided me with package, that solves this glitch.

Public reference number is 120449.

To resolve the issue, I had to:
  1. Put the Sitecore.Support.120449.dll into bin folder
  2. Navigate to the /sitecore/system/Modules/Web Forms for Marketers/Settings/Actions/Save Actions/Send Email Campaign Message item and perform the following changes with its fields:
  • Assembly -> Sitecore.Support.120449
  • Class -> Sitecore.Support.Form.Submit.SendStandardMessage
         3. Publish the changes

After that it worked for me. Hope that post will be helpful :)
