From:             [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Operating system: Win32 (2K and 9x) - IIS 5 & Apache 1.3.19
PHP version:      4.0.4pl1
PHP Bug Type:     Mail related
Bug description:  Function mail() does not work properly

First, I tried making mail() function work() on a Win2k - IIS 5.0 server and on 
Win98SE - Apache 1.3.19 both with PHP 4.0.4pl1.

there are several things wrong (so far it wouldn't be me the problem ;-) ) :
- first :
mail ("Arnaud <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>","A subject here","A message body here",...);
(as mentioned in PHP manual), It won't work, i have a "Warning: Server error on 
blabla.php3:lineXX" but if the "To:" Field is replace by just an email adress : 
mail("[EMAIL PROTECTED]",....); this would work... So I can't send mails with the name 
of the recipients properly set (just their email adress)...
NB: Multiple "To:" Recipients works but only with email adresses

That's not the most important problem for me, the most important is Cc: and Bcc: won't 
The manual mentions to add From: Cc: and Bcc: information, in the fourth parameters 
(the headers)... So I tried :
mail("[EMAIL PROTECTED]","A subject here","A (very nice !) body here","From: The 
Administrator <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>\nBcc: My Friend <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>\nCc: My Father 
it obviously doesn't work :-(( (that's why I'm writing you !!)
There are several things to say :
- The From: section of headers works well, nothing to say about it... No problem
- Seems the Bcc: part is just ignored, nothing happen, no mail is sent to Bcc: address
- For Cc:, when typed "cc:" (all lowercase) seems to be ignored but when typed "Cc:" 
=> It looks like there is a memory leak or something like that both IIS and Apache 
return me a "emalloc() : unable to allocate -851230 bytes"... The number of 
unallocated bytes is not ever the same but this is the same error message...

Extra info :
- On both config, the mail server is a local mail server (FTGate
- It seems that this bug is similar to #9858 and #9859 in the bug database
