I have had the following response from my hosting company:

"Please include a -f parameter within the mail function of your script. If this is absent the emails generated may be picked up as spam by our outgoing mail server"

I have been unable to locate either the $email_from or the sendmail_from functions in any of the scripts with the contact form solution pack.

My host gave the following example:

<?php
ini_set("sendmail_from", "user@yourdomain.com");
mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers, "-fuser@yourdomain.com");
?>

Does this make sense to anyone?
