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() function, which doesn't work very well anymore. You would be best advised to use another solution (one example is PHPMailer -
