On the hosting from Yahoo there is a error message that says:

Sorry, Method Not Allowed.
The requested method is not allowed for this URL.

But every time I upload the code to another hosting account it works fine:
The error log in yahoo says:

2010 May 18 20:35:25 Result: 9
2010 May 18 20:35:25 From address not in member domain. Message not sent.

So custumer Service said there is something wrong with the PHP code in the $headers = "From: $email"; .

But it works fine in other servers. Anybody had the same issue with Yahoo's hosting?
Here is the PHP code:
$to = "info@jandjcarburetors.com";
$subject = "JandJ Carburators";
$email = $_REQUEST['email'] ;
$message = "=====Customer Inquiry=====" . "\n" ."\n" ;
$message .= "Customer Name:" .$_POST['Name'] ."\n" ;
$message .= "Phone#:" .$_POST['Phone'] . "\n" ;
$message .= "E-mail:" .$_POST['email'] ."\n" ;
$message .= "Address:" .$_POST['Address'] ."\n" ;
$message .= "City:" .$_POST['City'] ."\n" ;
$message .= "State:" .$_POST['StateZip'] ."\n" ;
$message .= "Contact me by:" .$_POST['Contact'] . "\n" ;
$message .= "Best Time to Call:" .$_POST['CallingTime'] ."\n" ;
$message .= "Notes:" .$_POST['message'] ."\n" ;
$headers = "From: $email";
$sent = mail($to, $subject, $message) ;
{print "Your mail was sent successfully, please click the back button. Thank-You."; }
{print "We encountered an error sending your mail"; }

Correct me if i'm wrong, but your using $_REQUEST to get the email, where are you requesting it from?

There's no place like
There are 10 types of people in the world, those that can read binary, and those who can't.

Yea I was using the $_REQUEST, it is coming from order.html :trumpet:

But no worries I just fixed it.

What happens is that Yahoo hosting only allows the form to be forwarded if the email that was inputed into the " $headers = "From: $e-mail" ;"

is coming from a e-mail that is in the domains e-mail list.

So what I had to do is create a "e-mail2" that will always have the e-mail address of the domain as a defult being sent to $headers = "From: $e-mail2" ;.
In the php code to manipulate their way of sending forms :thumbsup:

Its the only way around it, other hoster's don't do that, they sure pissed me off. :inlove:

Well thanks for helping me out, have a good day :flowers:
