sender receives receipt/autoresonder with custom fields


Recommended Posts

I recently changed the PHP code where the submitter receives a receipt, Now they want the submitter to receive it with less fields than what the E-mail goes to.

For example the people who get the email from the submitter sees all the fields, but the submitter gets a receipt with different fields. I cannot seem to figure it out. Any help is appreciated. So I receive all this fields name,lastname,email,Phone,ReferredBy. But the submitter receives only these files name,lastname,ReferredBy




$yourEmail = "example1@email,example2@email.com"; // the email address you wish to receive these mails through
$yourWebsite = "Application"; // the name of your website
$thanksPage = ''; // URL to 'thanks for sending mail' page; leave empty to keep message on the same page
$maxPoints = 4; // max points a person can hit before it refuses to submit - recommend 4
$requiredFields = "name,lastname,email,Phone,ReferredBy"; // names of the fields you'd like to be required as a minimum, separate each field with a comma

$textlink ='<a href="confirmation.html">Click Here And Take The Next Step</a>.' ;
$error_msg = array();
$result = null;

$requiredFields = explode(",", $requiredFields);

function clean($data) {
$data = trim(stripslashes(strip_tags($data)));
return $data;
function isBot() {
$bots = array("Indy", "Blaiz", "Java", "libwww-perl", "Python", "OutfoxBot", "User-Agent", "PycURL", "AlphaServer", "T8Abot", "Syntryx", "WinHttp", "WebBandit", "nicebot", "Teoma", "alexa", "froogle", "inktomi", "looksmart", "URL_Spider_SQL", "Firefly", "NationalDirectory", "Ask Jeeves", "TECNOSEEK", "InfoSeek", "WebFindBot", "girafabot", "crawler", "www.galaxy.com", "Googlebot", "Scooter", "Slurp", "appie", "FAST", "WebBug", "Spade", "ZyBorg", "rabaz");
