accurate. If it is, why hasn't the mail function been modified in the
more recent builds? I've been using PHP since it was invented & never
had a problem with mail.

"Also note that your form page is currently using the PHP mail()

I have never had any major problems with mail() myself. People just use it incorrectly or don't configure correctly or don't create their e-mails correctly.

However, it *can* be hard to use, especially for multi-part e-mails and on Windows platforms.

If you're doing anything but sending a simple text message, I would highly recommend using a mailer package. The one I happen to like is a combination of PEAR's Mail and Mail_Mime.
