Get the following error message:

Warning: Server Error in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\David\send_simpleform.php on line 15

Referred to code:

1 <?php
4 $msg .= "Sender's Name:\t$sender_name\n";
5 $msg .= "Sender's E-Mail:\t$sender_email\n";
6 $msg .= "Message:\t$message\n\n";
8 $to = "";
10 $subject = "Web Site Feedback";
12 $mailheaders = "From: My Web Site <> \n";
13 $mailheaders .= "Reply-To: $sender_email\n\n";
15 mail($to, $subject, $msg, $mailheaders);


my php.ini mail settings are as follows:

[mail function]
SMTP =	localhost			;for win32 only
sendmail_from =	;for win32 only
;sendmail_path	= ;for unix only, may supply arguments as well (default is 'sendmail -t -i').

I found a possible solution on ticket number 6742 but didn't understand the cure (the simpler the description the better).

This might be a problem with your mailserver which appears to be not standards-compliant.

Please try latest snapshot from , it now returns the server error message which should help us identifying the problem here.
