Ye, however you might want to make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm this as I am unsure of myself. Better yet, why don't you email the iPage guys because they can give you an answer better...

Sendmail !.

When I go to send a email to a customer through Os it comes up at the top.

Saying Notice: Email sent to:.

But the back ground of the writing is RED I allways thought it went green...

As with your earlier issue this may well be down to changes made by your host to ompliment the new regulations on spam and the resent outbreak of virus.

We shall start with the easy checks..

Admin (do you have all of these filled correctly).

Email address.

Email from.

Send extra order email to.

Email Options.

Email transport method - sendmail.

Email linefeeds - LF.

Use MIME HTML - true or false.

Verify email address DNS - true or false.

Sen emails - true.

After this we will check email.php..
