update

Hi

Had a long conversation with the ISP today and the script below (supplied by them) works perfectly. Yet any password reminder email or thankyout for registering created with either the user registration solution pack or security assit or an email using css form builder fails.

Can you suggest what I have to add to make the m function?

thanks

Ian

<?
if (! empty($_POST['email']) )
{
$message=$_POST["message"];
$email=$_POST["email"];
$fname=$_POST["fname"];
$sname=$_POST["sname"];
$fromadd=$_POST["fromadd"];

$content = "You have a New Message From {$fname} {$sname}: {$message}";

ini_set("sendmail_from" , $fromadd);
$mailSent = false;
$mailSent = mail( $email, "Website Test Contact Form", $content, "From: $fromadd", "-f".$fromadd );

if ($mailSent)
{
echo 'Mail sent';

echo 'Problem';

The script your host is using, adds the -f option to the mail() function call.



you can add this to the user registration solution pack by modifying the WA_Universal_Email/mail_PHP.php file. Find the following code:

php:
$mailObj = mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader);



and change it to:

php:
$mailObj = mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader, "-f".$mailFrom);




for the security assist pages, make the same code change to the WA_SecurityAssist/Mail_PHP.php file.
