  Subject: Can't submit repetitively?

Hi Seth,

First of all, GREAT SCRIPT!! =D.

My question is, I got the form to work, and it was able to send an e-mail when submitted and the auto-response also works. I used sendmail.

BUT.. after testing two to three times, it doesnt work for me anymore?

When I tell someone else to test it, it works though.

Did you write some sort of spam protection?

Actually this is a great question. The answer could be one of many things.

1. There is no spam protection in the script to prevent you from getting the same email multiple times.

The problems is probably one of these:
2. When you submitted the form, Your ISP's server was backed up so it took longer than usual to get the mail. This can be a common problem. If this is it you will usually get the mail anywhere from minutes to hours after submitting.

2. Your ISP has filters set to NOT allow you to receive the SAME LOOKING email multiple times from the same recipient AND SOMETIME DIFFERENT RECIPIENT'S. This is a common problem with providers like MSN. The best fix if this is a problem would be to use the email you get with your web hosting (UNLESS THEY ARE THE PROBLEM), or I personally Like Yahoo.

3. Yahoo and others however when getting the same message multiple time will sometimes start sending it to your BULK MAIL folder. So that may be the problem, it just did not come to your inbox, so it looks as if you didn't get it but it is really in your bulk mail folder.

THESE are the main reason's I can think of, I am sure there could be others, what I would do is check with your email provider. They should be able to give you a clear answer.

Hm.. Your no.2 solution was correct for the auto-response that I thought wasn't gonna come.

But overall I was still unable to send any more forms.

It's all fixed now though, right after I replaced my v2 bizmail with v2.1.

Thanx for whatever fixes you did there =).
