    Default no email notifications from formmail

    My Web form submits, and formmail.php returns a generated success page (which contains a link to a third page. Link is generated in CreatePage() function from lines 6515-6544 of formmail.php). The link works fine.

    Problem is - I receive no email notices of form data via formmail.php. Here's my configuration:

    $TARGET_EMAIL = array("^ibnelson@*******\.com$");
    define("DEF_ALERT","ibnelson@*******\.com");

    Form contains the hidden input as required:
    <input type="hidden" name="recipients" value="ibnelson@hotmail.com" />

    Am I misconfigured??

    Thanks for the FAQ headsup - I'm not a newbie developer...should have thought to go there.
    I have made some of the configuration changes and finally got my first email alert. No form data yet, but I AM closer than before. Thanks a million

    You may want to consider installing an SPF record for your domain.
    http://www.openspf.org/ The add the email sending servers to the SPF record.

    Also instead of displaying your email address as your name, consider giving your email account an actual name or company.

    Your Example:
    "ibnelson@*****.com" <ibnelson@*****.com>
    Most email filters will pick-up the above as SPAM.

    Try This
    "Some Company Name" <ibnelson@*****.com>

    Thanks CMPortal

    checked out http://www.openspf.org/

    It appears I have to have access to DNS server to load SPF wizard result. I do not believe I have access to DNS server

    Could not figure out where to create following suggested change:

    "Some Company Name" <ibnelson@*****.com>
    all attempts to get a company name inserted resulted in a formmail error

    You just need to login to your domain name registry company and add a TXT record to your DNS. You will also need your mail sending IP addresses. Ask your web host for this information.

    From:
    "ibnelson@*****.com" <ibnelson@*****.com>

    The first part is taken from your name field.
    Example: <input type=text name="Name">
