View Full Version : Help with FormMail

08-02-2006, 01:51 PM

I thought my formmail was working, but I'm finding out messages aren't being received.

And I thought I did everything ok - first time and all.

In my Site Manager I have listed another domain. (That was a battle in itself.)
I created a form on this domain - so far so good.
I have this form going to another email account - an AOL address
I edited the FormMail's file: I added the domain to the main one already listed and I added aol.com.

The form worked (Much rejoicing)...until....

We realized the form worked on the end-user side (no error message), but we weren't getting the messages.

What did I do wrong or forgot to do?

Thanks for your time!

When you say it worked, I assume that you end up with the 'Thank you for...' or whatever. The script completes successfully, yes?
And it doesn't arrive at AOL...

AOL is a little funny about emails. Check that it didn't end up in your spam box. Try sending it to a none-AOL address for a test.

Otherwise, turn on mail logging and see if there are any error messages.

jalal is correct, check the error messages. If you see error number 554, it basically means that you need a static IP address ($1 extra per month) if you want to send E-mail to an AOL address.

Quick.... and also a little mystified. Did it work?

It's nice to share any solutions to problems here on the forums, that way we can help others.

Have a good day :)
