Thanks for that. That's hitting the nail right on the
But I need a bit of PHP code to talk to mysql and only
read the "from" part of the email and use a query to
check the database if the entry is there. If it is
than flag it, if not skip it and delete the email.
So would I need to edit the code to make the from
section a input form or can I somehow get a query to
get the from data from plain text?
All I want is the from address, the rest I don't
UPDATE users SET flag='y' WHERE email='$from_address';
Might even output something to make sure it was
sucessful or not.
What I need to know is how I get the from address?
