Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

    I dnt get any email at all, but it does go to the "redirect" page which to me means it is actually getting to the script.

    "is your smtp server installed" How do you do that? I never had to do it before on these servers, so i don't see how i would have to? How do you check?

    Try to send mail to yourself using a Perl or a PHP script. If you get the mail, it's installed. Other than that, just check your settings. Matt's form mailer works, it's been used by thousands of people, so the problem is either with your server or your settings.

    Ok i have done that, the mail works through the php script.

    So it means it must be my formMail script?

    Yep, looks like there's something wrong with your configuration. But if you have PHP, it's a lot easier to code a simple form-mailer in PHP than try to repair the Perl script.
