Recipient address problem

Hi
I am still testing on my local machine, I have a simple form that sends a message when an order has been dispatched, I have a recordset with the order details, I have added a dynamic value for the recipient e-mail address, and a CC and BCC values (these are static entries), when I submit the form, the email comes through to both the BCC and CC but not to the recipient,
When I view the Email, there is no address in the 'To' field at all?
This leads me to believe that the dynamic address is not actually being passed through to the message, I have tried several times to reconfigure the form, but the message still does not get sent to the recipient.
The form is on my local development server
The mail server is set to my remote vps (mail.domainname.com, port 25)
BCC & CC: static addresses
To: dynamic address

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks in advance.

what type of dynamic value are you using for the recipient address.

can you please send a copy of your page so I can look at the code to get a better idea of the issue.

the email is using a column form the recordset. The recordset is filtereed on a querystring variabale that does not exist when the form is posted, causing the recordset to be empty.



change the forms action:

php:
<form  action="" method="post" name="WADADeleteForm" id="WADADeleteForm">




to:

php:
<form  action="<?php echo((isset($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]))?$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]:""?>?OrderID=<?php echo(isset($_GET['OrderID'])?$_GET['OrderID']:""); ?>" method="post" name="WADADeleteForm" id="WADADeleteForm">

Hi Ray
Thats the wrong form, scroll down the page a bit, you are looking for
<form class="_PINKGOLDEMAIL" id="SimpleInsert__PINKGOLDEMAIL" name="SimpleInsert__PINKGOLDEMAIL" method="post" action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?>">
The record set is WADAOrders
Thanks again

I'm Jason, not Ray.


The problem is still the same, the forms action does not pass the querystring variable needed by the recordset.


change the code for the action:
action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?>"


to:
action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?>?OrderID=<?php echo(isset($_GET['OrderID'])?$_GET['OrderID']:""); ?>"
