How do I configure recordset to get Universal Email actually working?

Have I configured this recordset correctly? It's not working.

the way you have it configured will work if you pass the email address in as a URL parameter named ml_email, for example:

page.php?ml_email=name@domain.com

doesn't make sense to do that though, why not just use the URL parameter instead of the recordset.

give more details on what your trying to accomplish and I an help you, but the question as posted is pretty vague.

I have a database with hundreds of addresses. In CS$ I use the recordset for the Universal Email to access in order to send out my mailing. The recordset test ok, but when I put it up my trigger fails to distribute the emails. heres screen shot of the UE info

well, like i said that would only work if the email address is passed in using a URL variable:
page.php?ml_email=name@domain.com

How can I modify the recordset config to make things work? Perhaps I should have no filter in the RS.

well, thats what i was asking for details on.

how do you want it to work?

do you want it to send the email to all addresses in the database? then yes, you should not have a filter.

Eliminated the filter, tested the RS, it worked, put it up. Executed the trigger. Nothing. I'm mystified. Here's the screen shot of the RC as currently configured. Here are the two shots of UE as currently configured. Does this help?

to troubleshoot, remove the redirect from universal email, and add the following code just before the closing </body> tag

<?php @session_start(); var_dump($_SESSION); ?>

send a link where I can test the page and also a copy of the page in a zip archive.

Entered the code, The link is http://www.innerchoicepublishing.com/mondayEmail_trigger.php

Sounds stupid (and is) but how do I create a zip archive of the page?

it is still redirecting to the thank you page, you need to remove the redirect, I also don't see the session details on the page.


in windows, you can right click the file and select Send To -> Zip archive.
