    Email problems sending to AOL

    HI

    I used to get problems with sending PHP emails, AOL just wouldnt receive them. I then turned to Coldfusion to solve this..

    My entire website is written in PHP but I use a .CFM page to send the EMAIL.

    THE .cfm page is an inbetween page from submitform.php to submitedok.php .
    My googlemail account receives the email but AOL doesnt even send this email to spam.. God knows where its going!

    <head>
    <cfmail to="#form.email#"
    from="Free Tags Page"
    subject="New Customer Comments"
    type="html">
    #form.email#
    </cfmail>
    </head>
    <body>
    </body>


    Ive placed the <cfmail> in the <head> as I want it to post and redirect to the next page without ever displaying the .cfm page.

    Hope this makes sense

    AOL is terrible for email problems... it filters emails as being too bad for even the spam folder when they should be ok going to the inbox.

    Similarly with Hotmail, only authenticated (verisigned) domains can send mail to a user's inbox.

    Best thing to do, is tell your users to add your domain to their safe/white list.

    You may have noticed that a lot of websites that send emails to their users say that AOL users should add them to their safelist!


    Blame spammers and phishing attempts!


    Or... pay to get signed of course (although I'd email AOL and ask if this is the reason!)



    Hope this helps!

    I'll give AOL a buzz.

    I was pretty sure it was their fault.

    cheers matey.
