I am trying to solve an issue concerning my woocommerce emails. When an order is placed, the "new-order" email for the admin is not sent from my site, yet the customer receives the confirmation.

After checking a bit on every website, my problem still exists. I was able to set de debug.log file on the ftp and the error that appears is as followed:

Is it a problem with wpml or with the server ? or with woocommerce ?

Erreur de la base de données WordPress Column 'subject' cannot be null pour la requête INSERT INTO `wp_'XXXXXX'_wpml_mails` (`mail_id`, `timestamp`, `host`, `receiver`, `subject`, `message`, `headers`, `attachments`, `error`, `plugin_version`) VALUES (NULL, '2018-05-12 16:37:27', '', '', NULL, '

Thanks for any help or advice that could allow me to resolve this problem as it causes a big block into my shop...

Welcome to the WPML support forum. I will do my best to help you to resolve these issues.

We have a known issue with WooCommerce E-mail subject after the release of the WooCommerce Multilingual 4.2.10. It may be related. Please try the workaround recommended in the following errata(after a site backup) and make sure you are getting the expected result or not.
