    Default Mail sent but showing error page

    Hello,

    I am using the formmail script and upon sending I actually do receive the e-mail, so no problems there.
    But I get redirected to the error page with the following in de URL:
    formerror.php?error=Failed+to+send+email+&extra=&errcode=mail_failed&isusererror=0&alerted=0&etc.

    Strange that it states Failed to send because the e-mail has been sent and received as well.

    Allready tried to set the from_user to a fixed address in the script but that did not help.

    What could be causing this?

    it's not sending u a form results email

    it's sending u an alert email - read the words at the top.

    u need this page:
    http://www.tectite.com/fmdoc/emailproblems.php

    it's a problem with ur server's email system

    u probly need to use mail_options FromAddr feature to set the from address to ur webmaster or similar address

    No.
    Actually it is sending a form results e-mail.
    I did receive that mail and it is the same form results e-mail as I am getting on another server
    that does not give me the error-message.

    ok, so maybe post the url to ur form.

    r u sending to multiple recipients, and some of them are failing? what about CC or BCC?

    try removing all down to one recipent.

    does testalert work?

    have u changed formmail outside the config section?

    bottom line is ur not gonna get a "Failed to send email" unless that actually happens. in which case, what email send is failing?

    Same thing.
    I tried the testalert.

    browsers shows: FAILED to send alert message. Check your server error logs.

    but: email is received:
    This is a test alert message
    Loaded language is English (builtin)
    PHP version is 5.3.3
    FormMail version is 8.29
    Server type: non-Windows
    etc.

    I'm having the same problem.

    I receive an email with the subject line reading: FormMail script error
    The following error occurred in FormMail :
    mail_failed
    **********
    Error=Failed to send email

    AND I also receive a separate email with the form's contents as if there's no problem.

    In addition, I receive an error message instead of the response HTML page.
