Hi. This is the qmail-send program at php.net.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.


<CYNIC <cynic@php.net>:
Sorry, no mailbox here by that name. (#5.1.1)

Try this as a work around:

mail("user@host.com",
     "My Subject",
     "My Body",
     "To: \"Some User\" <user@host.com>\nFrom: me <blah@blah.com>"
);

The ciode you're trying *should* fail.
"to" argument is not a header "To:" field value, but a mail envelope RCPT-TO parameter. Which does not expect anything but email address(es).

I'm sorry for the long wait, I hope you are still with us, but as of PHP7 this bug is no longer present, possible also in much much older versions.
