email script issue


Recommended Posts

Guys Im having a strange issue with my code


I have a form to request a password to be sent to email incase forgotten


The script seems to run as it should as in taking the info then redirecting to the messages page for confirmation no problem

but its not sending the email


Ive checked and double checked, and even re written the code from scratch and nothing seems to be playing ball in sending the email


Can someone shed some none sleep deprived eyes over it and point out what will no doubt be an obvious error I just cant seem to see  ::)


The Form:

<form name="sendpw" method="post" action="sendpw.php">
<table width="100%" border="0" class="tbl">
    <td width="198"><div align="right">Username:</div></td>
    <td width="418"><input name="name" type="text" class="input" size="30"></td>
    <td><div align="right">Email: </div>      </td>
    <td><input name="mail" type="text" class="input" size="30"></td>
    <td colspan="2"> <div align="center">
      <input name="Submit" type="submit">      




The Script:

include ('config.php');


$query="SELECT pw FROM user WHERE uname='$name' AND email='$em'" or die (mysql_error());

$result= mysql_query($query);

$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result);

$from="From: passwords@MBD.net";
$msg="Username: $name\r\n";
$msg .="Password: $pass\r\n";
$msg .="Please keep this password safe";
$subject="Your Login Password\r\n";

header( "Location:messages.php?msg=2" );


config.php is just my database connection info, which is working fine as it runs all all my pages that access the database.
