Unless you have to, there is a much more elegant way of doing this that
avoids having to deal with code.

Any good ISP should have alias support, so that you can have an email come

have set up.  That way, you don't have to hack it into the php script...

Even if your ISP doesn't support it -- not problemo!  Just use a free
forwarding service.
