Home Forums Back End Email Help Re: Email Help


In the code you show above, `$name` is not defined: if the “From” header you construct is blank, the email probably won’t be sent.

Further, if you’re simply putting a name in the “From” header, the mail might be dropped anyway, since “From” requires an email address. Use an email that belongs to your domain (e.g., `[email protected]`).

[`mail()`]( wouldn’t know about such a failure: all it does is submit the message to the mailing queue.
