    Hello,

    This is my first post here, seems to be a great and resourceful site!

    I just started a new job and my employer is not able to receive submissions from his website: www.bcareaforeclosures.com

    I'm not an expert in web design, but I know some basics (really basic by your standards probably). My employer told me that initially the forms were submitting fine and recently it just stopped working.

    I should note that he recently switched domain hosts to GoDaddy. But I don't believe any changes were made to the coding so shouldn't it still work correctly?

    I checked the following codes and the seems ok:

    <input name="submit" TYPE="submit" VALUE="Submit">
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    <input name="button" type="button" onClick="ResetForm();" value="Clear Form">

    and also:

    <form name="ReportRequestForm" action="sendeail.php" method="post" onSubmit="return Validate(this);">

    and also the email to send to:

    <a class='clsEmailLink' href='mailto:REMOVED>REMOVED</a>

    Any insight from your experience is really appreciated. :rambo:

    I'd wager there's some code in the PHP that references a mail tool from the host, and since the host has changed, so has the mail tool.

    i use a php mail script. the parameters are not relevant to the host other then the email address they are sent to. if anything the mail address has changed and maybe that needs to change in the parameters.

    while($get_it !== true){ continue; }

    I think this might be your answer ....

    Godaddy only allows emails to be sent to the email address that is
    entered for the website hosting account. Go into Godaddy and
    use the exact email address you want the emails sent to ... enter
    that as the webhost account email contact .

    I don't think that any emails you specify in your PHP script will be recognized.

    Thank you guys, I will give it a look at when I go to work tomorrow. I'll let you all know how it goes.

    PS: mlseim, I hope the solution is really as simple as that

    I just asked my boss and it turns out he signed up at GoDaddy with the same email address that he wants the forms to be sent to. So something must be up with the code...

    Unless you mean that GoDaddy forces you to sign up for their own webmail service? That would be just evil.

    i dont have any help to offer here but this is of great interest to me because of the limitations put on coding by mainstream hosts.

    while($get_it !== true){ continue; }

    What operating system are you hosting with Godaddy ... UNIX(Linux) or Windows?

    We are using Linux to host the site. This should be better than Windows I suppose?
