    Angry Missing Emails but line added to csv file

    So my form has worked for years, recently I went and added some security features and now I only receive some of my emails.
    I added

    a "formmail.ini" file and named it "86fuh8y6gu&J.ini"
    Changed "fmtemplates" folder to "fm!84&H!templates"
    and changed "cvsdir" folder to "csv!4G5&h!dir" and "formdata.csv" filename to "form!gHt&jT!data.csv"

    If the spammers can't guess the name I figure I'm pretty safe. But somewhere through all this I don't receive all my emails anymore.

    I noticed because I get a formmail alert email and my csv file gets a line added to it. But no email!!

    Any ideas?
    Maybe because of the special characters in the names.

    I will be happy to post any code if it will help.
    Also the form functions as should and takes me to the goodurl page. but no email

    Thanks

    Angry Re: Missing Emails but line added to csv file

    Its just the typical formmail email saying to upgrade from current version. Anyway I do not receive a formmail error page. Everything works as it should as explained in the original post. PLEASE HELP my emails are everything in my business.

    Default Re: Missing Emails but line added to csv file

    so, ur getting a successful form submission but receiving no email, sometimes?

    conclusion: faulty spam filter.

    either disable ur spam filter (u might not be able to coz some ISPs have broken filters that u can't control) or create a second (and maybe third) email account and send copies to those addresses

    i believe russell (owner of tectite) recommends gmail.com and hotmail.com for this.

    when u can see the emails arrive there and not at ur normal address u can blast ur ISP and threaten them with horrible vengeance

    Unhappy Re: Missing Emails but line added to csv file

    This problem is not a spam filter. Form results are sent to 2 email addresses. The "example@mywebsite.com" comes everytime. The example@gmail.com comes intermittently. I have added example@hotmail.com and example@yahoo.com emails for testing with no luck, they are intermittent as well.

    My form has worked for years. The recent lack of receiving emails is unrelated to security updates in original post.
