Jacks php from mail script

P: n/a
Hi,

I am having a little issue with Jacks Form mail php script. I have
installed it and configured the form to get it to work, but for some
bizarre reason I have 2 issues I can't seem to debug.

Issue#1: I get 2 copies of the form that gets submitted each time.

Issue#2: The header does not display the "FROM" information in
Outlook, but I can see the From information in my email spam filter
(Mailwasher).

I'm assuming I have a malformed header, but Not sure why, as I tried
to compare it to the valid syntax at php.net. mail() function.

Link to form: http://www.ctatlas.com/contact.htm

Here's the script on my contact page as I've used it: (apologies for
it being so long)

Hi,

I am having a little issue with Jacks Form mail php script. I have
installed it and configured the form to get it to work, but for some
bizarre reason I have 2 issues I can't seem to debug.

Issue#1: I get 2 copies of the form that gets submitted each time.

Issue#2: The header does not display the "FROM" information in
Outlook, but I can see the From information in my email spam filter
(Mailwasher).

<snip>

Sounds like, you have to learn PHP 'coz newsgroup people may not
debug/fix your code.

And you may try <http://phpmailer.sourceforge.net/> instead.

Thanks,

I know it was asking a little much for someone to read through the
code, but I put it out there for others who may also be looking at php
formmailer scripts.

The weird part is I didn't change any of the code other than the
defaults TO and FROM as well as the subject line.

I just didn't see why the script was double mailing me. Which is only
slighly more annoying, than the fact that Outlook doesn't display the
addressor (From) information when you download the form.

BAh!

I think that maybe I just need to build my own mailer script similar
to this one:

Thanks for the Sourceforge link
