If you are still having problems with this post back with the code you have the die statement in and the updated redirect page. If you have this die statement in the code above the recipient you should at the very least see the message that is in the quotes, if you see nothing and have this in the right place then the Universal Email server behavior is not being triggered. Please let us know how this is going for you.
