Q:<*NAME-DELETED*> Hello Mr. Verhas,<*NAME-DELETED*> I'm trying to finalize installation of the simple Birdcast cgi scriptfor email referral from a website.<*NAME-DELETED*> <*NAME-DELETED*> I've gotten all the way to calling up the form file successfully, so I<*NAME-DELETED*> know that the server is recognizing the file. And I've got it authorized<*NAME-DELETED*> with CHMOD 755.<*NAME-DELETED*> <*NAME-DELETED*> However, after inputting some test emails to refer the website, and<*NAME-DELETED*> clicking 'send'....the 'referral' email never arrives to the intended<*NAME-DELETED*> third-party email addresses! so, I don't know if the problem lies within<*NAME-DELETED*> the configuration, the SEND_MAIL command, or where??<*NAME-DELETED*> <*NAME-DELETED*> Any simple suggestions? Appreciate your help before banging my head on the<*NAME-DELETED*> computer. Been trying to get this to work for two full days..embarrassing<*NAME-DELETED*> huh?<*NAME-DELETED*> <*NAME-DELETED*> Much Appreciated!!<*NAME-DELETED*> *NAME-DELETED*<*NAME-DELETED*> A:<*NAME-DELETED*> This is a really difficult question and I can not tell the answer. You can<*NAME-DELETED*> however check certain things.<*NAME-DELETED*> <*NAME-DELETED*> Is the SMTP server configured working well, and accepting the mail you<*NAME-DELETED*> want to send?
