We've been using Matt's FormMail for over two years without known
problems. However, it recently ceased to work for us, for no apparent
reason (we didn't make any changes to our forms, or the configuration of
FormMail). It seems there's a new version of Matt's FormMail (v. 1.9),
and our (v.1.6) form started to produce errors saying there was no
'@recipients' set. This was true, because v. 1.6 didn't have that
I rather suspect something has changed at the ISP server and they
haven't told us !
Anyway, the upshot is that I found your web site and downloaded your
FormMail, and I'm trying to migrate to it.
I'm a bit confused by the 'my', the 'qw' and the lack of quotes and
commas between the two e-mail addresses. I've got the following line in
<input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="liz@...,
(I've tried with and without a space after the comma)
and in FormMail:
my @referers = qw(marcher.co.uk);
(Form Mail is at 'www.marcher.co.uk/cgi-bin')
my @allow_mail_to = qw(marcher.co.uk tim@...
In a test run, Liz got her message but Tim (that's me) didn't. RW
hasn't been included in the form yet.
I couldn't get my copy off Matt either, but I thought that was because I
didn't understand the syntax. (It always used to work, before the
introduction of Matt v. 1.9)
Perhaps this does all point to some unknown change at the ISP server.
As you can see, I'm NOT a Perl programmer.
Have I got your syntax right ?
