Universal Email not sending locally but OK remote
I have been creating a web form which uses UE to send messages from a web page.
I am using 1and1.co.uk for hosting.
I decided to use 1and1 linux hosting so I created the necessary structure etc and soon uploaded the site with very few problems.
I tested the page on the server and the email messages arrived correctly, it was late so I finished.
This morning I tested the page on the server and all was well.
I knew I had some more work to do locally for captcha and validation so I made a backup copy of the files on my local machine before proceeding with captcha.
After a while I tested the page and it failed to send the message.
It did show the thankyou.php page.
No worries thought I as I have a copy. So I reinstated the copy. That did the same, no messages.
However the copy on the remote server is still happily working, can anyone think what may be wrong.
By the way I found this excellent webassist video all about validation and captcha
1and1 have a very comprehensive set of tutorials for setting up email accounts for their servers
