It is saying that it is being e-mailed by my e-mail address to my e-mail address...

If your form on your website has your own address listed as the sender then yes, the email will be delivered to your email address saying its from your email address.

Probably, if you have used the standard script from the tutorial, the email field (for your visitors) is named something else than email.

When creating the script i added a couple of lines of code that will place your own email as sender, if no "email" field is found. This is done because otherwise there would be no sender's email address and the email could get blocked.

When creating the script, we had in mind the users that know litle of how php works, and this is a very common mistake: naming the email field something else than "email". So in order to avoid the emails being blocked, i added this "trick" code.
