Hi All

Using php to send a Mime format email with attachment. If I send the mail to dave@myrealbox.com address it works perfectly.

However if I send exactly the same mail to my Yahoo address or any others(eg joe@tpg.com.au) it never seems to arrive.

Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance

incomplete or malformed headers, most likely. 'Free' email addresses being notorious as sources of spam, you should try to ensure that your mail headers include the from and reply-to fields ... check the php manual mail() function for all the gory details.

And it might be worth checking in your 'spam' folder or even your email settings to make sure you haven't got some bizarre 'black list' or 'white list' that's messing things up.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.
