I have a PHP script which uses the PHP 'mail' function. When the script's 'to' address is an AT&T address, such as my own as an AT&T ISP customer, the mail never gets to me. If the 'to' address is anything other than an AT&T address, the mail gets to the recipient. The PHP code for sending the mail is essentially:

   $headers  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
   $headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";
   $headers .= 'From: Some From Name <somefromname.com>';
   $to = 'mybellsouthaddress.net';
   $subject = 'Some Subject';
   $msg = 'Some Message';
   if(mail($to,$subject,$msg."\r\n\r\n",$headers))
       echo "good";
   else
       echo "bad";

In the actual PHP script the $to, $subject, and $msg are successfully passed to the script from the client side as $_POST, $_POST and $_FILES parameters respectively. I have just filled them in above so that they can be seen as if they were part of the script. The script always returns "good", so the mail function must be successful.

In my project, testing has reported that any attempt to use the 'mail' function on the server to send to an AT&T address fails to reach the recipient, while all other addresses used in the testing succeed in reaching the recipient. I can assert this to be the case with my own AT&T address also. I have also checked my AT&T mailbox online to make sure the mail is not being received as Spam.

Does anybody have an idea why using the 'mail' function succeeds with all but AT&T $to addresses ? Naturally in the client-server application on which I am working, sending mail from the server must work for all $to addresses.

It might be that the server IP has been blacklisted with at&t as a domain from which spam is sent.

In that case I would have expected the spam to show up in my web mail spam folder. If AT&T is blacklisting the sending server IP without even delivering the mail to me as spam, I know of no way to find this out other than trying to talk to an AT&T representative.
