Are you using the most up-to-date version of Universal Email? Have there been any PHP upgrades on your server recently? Please post a copy of your email page so that we can see the code.

I figured it out. thanks for your help.
The issue was that the server has changed to only send messages from a valid email address associated with the server and using the servers smtp protocols.
thanks again

Glad you got it working. This is pretty common for most servers nowadays to prevent spoofing. I generally send the email from for example noreply@mydomain.com and then just include the email address of the actual sender within the body of the email. It just means that when the email arrives you can't hit Reply, you need to copy & paste the sender's email address into the To field manually. As you say, as long as the email comes from an address that uses the domain of the hosted website (it doesn't even have to be a functioning email address), there shouldn't be any issues.
