The e-commerce.

help..simple fix for email need guidance


Recommended Posts

my host says i cannot send email to address unless a parameter is speciify in the first or fifth of the mail send ... heres a cut and paste of what they require :


In order for the script to work, you need to specify, via a fifth -f parameter, the domain from which the mail is being sent. The PHP component uses SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol), and all Fasthosts' SMTP servers have filters which ensure that the data returned by either the first or fifth mail parameter relates to one of your domains hosted by Fasthosts.



mail( "yourname@yourdomain.com", "Feedback Form Results",

$message, "From: $email", "-fuser@userdomain.com" );

header( "Location: http://www.yourdomain.com/thankyou.html" );
