    The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

    myemail@gmail.com

       Remote server (209.85.221.68) issued an error.

    Pretty sure I had this problem last year also, and just ended up manually sending confirmations to entrants..

    So I think it is in this code…

    mail($email, "I have received your bracket","This is an automated email.  If you receive this, I have your submission.  Thanks for playing! -$meta[name]\n\n".$body, "From: <$adminEmail>");
    

    that variable is defined as

    $email = $_POST['e-mail'];
    

    I am reaching….

    seems to happen on google, hotmail, aol…yahoo appears to work

    The problem is in the way the email is constructed.

    The from address is set as <ncaa@myweb.com

    It needs to have that < removed…any help?

    Changing the line mentioned to the following should work:
    mail($email, "I have received your bracket","This is an automated email. If you receive this, I have your submission. Thanks for playing! -$meta\n\n".$body, "From: $adminEmail");

    Just finished loading ver 1.5.3.5 and tested and this bug is still there…

    bracket.php is where it needs to be changed.
