Is Nathan a real email addy or an alias? Check in your root directory and see if there is a file called dead.letter If there is open it up and see if all your lost mail it there. What ever email account you set the form to needs to be a real email account with a home directory. You can do this by enableing FTP for an account and if you do not need it you can then disable it. The directory well be left of the account and then it should work.

It turns out that on west host, when you make a new email, you need to enable the ftp account, or some php mail functions dont work right.

Dont ask me why, I searched the form and found some info about it.

Yes that is what I ment about the real email account and it having a directory. Now that you have created that directory you can actually go back and disable the FTP for that account and leave the directory and it should still work.
