regardless of the server being dedicated or not, if a customer can view the page through the internet, the email will still be sent out to the world wide web and you open yourself up for having that email intercepted.

I very strongly recommend against sending the credit card information through email. It is a very poor business practice. Email is extremely insecure.

I cannot stress enough how much of a bad idea it is.


In the WA_Universal_Email/WAUE_confirm_1.php file, the code to output the credit card # is:

php:
<p > <strong >Card number:</strong> xxxx xxxx xxxx <?php echo((strlen(((isset($_POST["cc_number"]))?$_POST["cc_number"]:""))<4)?((isset($_POST["cc_number"]))?$_POST["cc_number"]:""):substr(((isset($_POST["cc_number"]))?$_POST["cc_number"]:""),(strlen(((isset($_POST["cc_number"]))?$_POST["cc_number"]:""))-4),4)); ?></p>




you can modify this code to use the unformatted cc_number post element, but once again, I strongly urge you not to.
