That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..
Also FYI, check your SPAM folder. I found many of contact us emails in there just before they stopped coming entirely....I wonder if my iPage hosting provider has something to do with this?..
Same thing happened today. July 5, 2008. Weird that this is happening to more than just me. Problem with the software? I'm using 1&1 host and made no code changes in the past week..

After further testing I believe that it is my host that is causing this issue. The issue only seems to happen on form type emails. I try a few other sites that I have with same host with contact pages and none of the emails have come through...
I also had oscommerce for 3+ years and ALL emails, orders, contact us, customer emails, stopped. I just resently installed oscommerce 2.2 rc2a. After many, many tweaks, still no emails from this either? I deleted everything and started from scratch with 2.2 rc2a, placed an order and still no email. I've got a ticket open into tech support, but it's been 4 days and not getting anywhere...
My email started working again this morning. I was expecting to get the missing emails 3 orders, but I didn't get them..
Did this only start when you installed the upgrade? My issue was that the email just stopped without any code changes. I really think that it was my host and not OSC. Your email still works right? If you send an email from a regular email account to your store email it goes through?..
If your email just suddenly stops working and you have not edited the code then there are only two possibilities:.
1. The email address is corrupted or just plain no longer working. It could also be full and not accepting any mor email..
2. Your iPage hosting company has disabled sendmail or smtp or both..
I'm very glad your email started going thru biophase!.
Our email still works outside of OSC. Anything (order emails, contact us, customer emails) within OSC old version or new version won't go thru. It seems like something got stuck for a better term. I'm going with vger's last possibility. I still have a ticket open with my iPage hosting co. We'll see what they say...
The fact that the original poster and the 1st replier has not come back to reply this thread also makes me think that their emails started working shortly after they posted. Hopefully your emails will start to work...
I had this same issue recently. It was only effecting my form based emails and welcome emails. I was still getting the order emails but I'm not sure if the customers were getting theirs. I contacted my iPage hosting company and they applied the following patch.
The code that has been changed is in the includes/classes/email.php and admin/includes/classes/email.php files:.
$to = (($to_name != '') ? '"'$to_name'" <'$to_addr'>' :.
$from = (($from_name != '') ? '"'$from_name'" <'$from_addr.
'>' : $from_addr);.
Has been changed to:.
$to = ($to_addr);.
$from = ($from_addr);.
Additionally, in the admin/mail.php file, the following lines have been changed:.
$mail_query = tep_db_query("select customers_firstname,.
Customers_lastname, customers_email_address from "TABLE_CUSTOMERS".
Where customers_email_address = '".
$mail_query = tep_db_query("select customers_email_address from ".
TABLE_CUSTOMERS" where customers_email_address = '".
This solved the problems but I'm a bit confused, did I miss an important oscommerce update?..
I am also having problems with sending emails. I have yet to get it to work. I don't know if this has anything to do with it but I discovered when I went into "tools" in the admin page and click on the "server info", it showed that the smtp_port as 2525. I thought this was normally just 25..
Is this an error? If it is how do I correct it?..
My email just partially stop working; email still send out to customer to confirm order or update status; but won't send any to me when there is a order. any idea where I should start looking?..
This has happened here also. Out of the blue order notification emails going to one address stopped being sent for no apparent reason. No code has been changed and other notification emails have been arriving. I've checked throught the exim logs to see if there is a problem there - no, tried sending to the email address outside of OS - fine, no problems, even increased the mailbox size. Nothing. Has anyone above worked out why their emails started working again?..
Well, they've started again. No rhyme nor reason. Oh, well. No-one any ideas I suppose?..
After 4+ years of the email system working wonderfully, yesterday, they stopped going out. I currently have about 8 orders sitting in the system and I have received no email for any of them..
The email address that orders normally go to is receiving other mail, just not order emails. I placed a test order and did not receive a confirmation (the buyer's copy). I tried the contact us feature and that email also didn't go through..
The email adress that I use for orders is not connected to the same domain/host that OSC is on..
Based on all of the above, I'm thinking that something must have changed with my OSC code..
I've made no changes to any code in the last week except updating some text on the main page. I cannot see where that may cause this problem..
I can't recall anywhere other than on the admin configuration pages that the email address is coded in. Oh, and I did just trying switching from sendmail to smtp and that didn't do anything..
I am exactly in the same boat as you, everything was working fine for years and now all of a sudden things stop. I have made no changes to my coding as well, I just don't get it. I am ready to can OS commerce because strange stuff like this is happening way too many times.....
