further info

Hi

the script below works OK

I know fasthosts needs the -f switch and I have it at line 296 of mail_php.php

if ($mailObj->useAddParams) {
$mailObj = @mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader,"-f".$mailFrom);



All rather confusing

cheers

Ian

<?
if (! empty($_POST['email']) )
{
$message=$_POST["message"];
$email=$_POST["email"];
$fname=$_POST["fname"];
$sname=$_POST["sname"];
$fromadd=$_POST["fromadd"];

$content = "You have a New Message From {$fname} {$sname}: {$message}";

ini_set("sendmail_from" , $fromadd);
$mailSent = false;
$mailSent = mail( $email, "Website Test Contact Form", $content, "From: $fromadd", "-f".$fromadd );

if ($mailSent)
{
echo 'Mail sent';
}
else
{
echo 'Problem';
}
}

Double click on the universal Email server behavior.

Click the folder icon and check the box to include the from address as an extra parameter.

make sure that the from address is a valid address for your domain.
