leftysd,

First- you need to have the "email" portion of the php script as your
email address that you set up in the BV Squirrel mail or Neo mail. So it would be like;
leftysd@sinwcert.com

If you have it set to go to your yahoo mail or any other outside e-mail service - it probably will not work.

Second- make sure each element (place where you want people to fill in) is assigned a name.

Correct those two things and I believe your problem will be solved.

If you want it to go to your yahoo mail address- simply set it up to forward from your BV Squirrel mail to your Yahoo mail. You can do this in cpanel.

Well now-

A web page appears and states this or is that what your e-mail account reports?

I did a quick look at the form source code and it appears ok. Perhaps it is a part of the php script that has been modified by accident? Try deleting the php script and starting over. Re-copy and past into the "inside body" tag and then carefully put your e-mail address in it again. Make sure to replace only inside the " ". Dont change anything else except the e-mail address. Then try it again.

Also- send yourself an e-mail from an outside source to make sure it is functioning properly. Might even want to try this first.

Post back and let me know how it works.

Andy Thanks for you help. You put me on the right track. I finally used the master email address that was issued to me by voda host then forwarded it to the other email address. Everything works great now. Thanks again. Lefty
