They are having the problem receiving the mail sent by the script not
They go to my site and generate a form mailer using their email ad
They upload it to their webserver
Then they email me saying that they are testing the mailer out on their site
and it seems to work but they never receive the email that it sends
Always when I test the scripts (with my email ad) there is nothing wrong
with it and I receive the mail
So I don't know what to tell them apart from it must be filtering, nor do I
know how to attempt to fix the problem. Maybe this problem of 'lost mail' is
more noticeable to me because a few hundred a week use this generator so we
are talking about running these scripts on a lot of different websites using
a lot of different mailservers/mailboxes.
>From now on when I get these complaints I will ask them for the name of the
mailserver that sends the mail - maybe then I can get back to you for some
