UE with Session Variable for CC Email

(Files are attached in zip file)
Okay i am using UE to send an email to me as well as carbon copy the customer using a session variable. On the checkout page i created a session variable to transfer over the email value called "Email" when a user click the Checkout button. Next the user is directed to the confirm page and when the user selects Submit Order button I wanted UE to send an email out to me and well as a cc to the session variable (which would be the customer). For some reason i am not seing these emails... The confirm page does send the user over to paypal to make a payment, but i do not receive the conformation email... please advise...

The checkout form posts directly to the confirm page. The set session value server behavior on the checkout page will never trigger.


Move this code:

php:
<?php

if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(isset(
$_POST["Checkout_x"]))     {
  
$_SESSION["Email"] = "".((isset($_POST["email"]))?$_POST["email"]:"")  ."";
}
?>




from the checkout page to the confirm page.

Since you are using local checkout, you need to use Universal Email on the Checkout Success page, use the before page load trigger.

Local Checkout

Im not using a local checkout... All payments are handled by Paypal Standard, so user is redirected to Paypal to finish their order...

Sorry for the confusion, that was a typo on my part. I meant to write:

Since you are using remote checkout, you need to use Universal Email on the Checkout Success page, use the before page load trigger.

Remote Checkout on Success Page

My goal was to have UE send the customer and me a copy of their information (name, email, phone and etc,) along with a link to the image they just uploaded from my site. Can I still do this on the Checkout Success Page...??

Yes, but you will need to use the session information to return those values.
