    I have used this script before and it has worked until now for some reason.

    Thank you for any help.

    You haven't done anything to verify that mail has been queued. This suppresses any errors from mail, and then simply tells you it was successful. Change mail to detect if a queue was performed:
    PHP Code:
    if (!mail($email_to$email_subject$email_message$headers))
    // do something to indicate a queue failure.

    Still won't guarantee anything, but so long as that pulls up successful the problem isn't with PHP.

    This indicates something else has changed. Check your error logs for both sendmail and PHP.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm'); 
    Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)
