mail() Getting An Email To Go Through

I'm messing with the mail() function trying to get some email

I managed to get the email through yesterday, and perhaps
the mail server is slow delivering.

function SendSomeEmailOut() {
// bool mail ( string to, string subject, string message [, string additional_headers [, string additional_parameters]] )
$sToAddr = "so*****@example.com";
$sFromAddr = "Some One Else <'s**********@example.com'>";
$sEmailSubject = "Sample Subject";
$sEmailBody = "Sample Body";
$yResults = mail($sToAddr, $sEmailSubject, $sEmailBody, $sFromAddr);

$yResults always comes back as true.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Your "From" header is malformed. In fact, it's really not a header at all;
the line looks like this:

Some One Else <'s**********@example.com'>

when it should look like this:

From: Some One Else <so*********@example.com>

So, basically, you need to add the "From: " and take the single quotes out
of the e-mail address. I'm not sure whether this will solve your problem,
but it could certainly be creating issues.
