why sessions arnt being passed over

Hi Jason, this one is odd for me because I have a success page which passes session variables to the email and that email gets sent out and displayed correctly......however...

if the customer is redirected to either the failure or cancel page (my my paypal express shopping site) then for some reason the session variables that i pass to the failure and cancel emails arnt shown in the users email. actually come to think of it i think the cancel page does BUT the failure page doesnt pass the session variables (i need to test the cancel page again but for now just wanted to ask about the failure page.

if the sessions are being passed to paypal express, and if the order is successful the sessions display on the confirm, success and success emails. its only if the website redirects to the failure page thats when the sessons dont display.

attaching the files to view.

some times PHP losses focus of the session.

add the following code to line 1 to force the php server to look for the session:
<?php @session_start(); ?>


Also, on your checkout page, i seem to remember that the set session value code came after the express checkout code. Double check that, the set session value code should be before the express checkout code.
