If you ever get the failed at mail() error again, then we are in deep trouble.. as Totalchoice would have to remove PHP... which would mean that about 6000+ (Guessing) customers would be angry..

You shouldn't get any errors. If you do, email or PM it to me immediately.
huh? why do you say that? Why would they care if your script gave an error? (Unless they think you're spamming with mail())

No.. I'm saying if they (forum members) get mail errors, then they should contact me so I can inform my host.

Why would the host have to remove PHP? Or did I misunderstand you?

Well.. I should really restate that:

The only way for us to get any more errors would have to be an error on my part with coding, or the host deciding to drop PHP. The latter is impossible, while the first is likely. But as of late, I haven't modded anything.

I think it's possible that the mail command will fail if sendmail cannot be run, probably due to one of the following:

1) the server is too busy and it can't fork a new shell to send commands to, or can't run sendmail for similar reasons
2) sendmail is down or they are modifying it
3) the SMTP server that handles the messages is down
4) the PHP no longer works with the system setup (ie. They changed php.ini)

Those are all faults that no one user would be responsible for (in most cases)

I get an error telling me "Failed at mail command" or something like that. But it seems my messages do get through. I hope that message I sent CK9, Betaray, Duo, and xfir got through. Maybe I can make a thread if nobody got the message.

What message?

Oh, that message. That was eons ago! It was about me being banned from a British forum for being an "ignorant American."

It was likely sent to you right before one time the forum was down. Thus, it was not in your PM box.
