Hi Bruce,

First of all, to my mind,
I've found some errors in php:

Check this line please,
probably you missed quotes near (value="<?=$message ?>)

>>> <td><textarea name="message" id="message" value="<?=$message ?>
>>> cols="" rows=""></textarea>

Also, to my mind,

It is better to use this code:

$subject = $_POST['subject'];
$message = $_POST['message'];

instead of:

>>> $subject = $_REQUEST['subject'];
>>> $message = $_REQUEST['message'];

Multiple extra headers should be separated with a CRLF (\r\n).

Try change "\n" with "\r\n" in the lines below:

>>> $sender = "Bruce Gilbert <webguync at gmail.com>\n"; $reply_to =
>>> "<webguync at gmail.com>\n"; $return_path = "webguync at gmail.com\n";
>>> $x_sender = "<webguync at gmail.com>\n";


>>> http://http:www/inspired-evolution.com

with http://www.inspired-evolution.com
in the paragraph below:

>>> $message .= "\n\n This is a double opt-in mailing list. All
>>> recipients have confirmed their subscription. If you no longer wish
>>> to receive these emails, please go to
>>> http://http:www/inspired-evolution.com \n";

Try change in headers "\n" with "\r\n":

>>>	$headers .= "X-Mailer: PHP4\n";
>>>	$headers .= "X-Priority: 3\n";
>>>	$headers .= "Mime-Version:1.0\n Content-Type: text/plain;
>>> charset=\"iso-8859-1\nContent-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit\n";

You'll get some kind of this:

$headers .= "X-Mailer: PHP4" . "\r\n";
$headers .= "X-Priority: 3" . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Mime-Version: 1.0" ."\r\n"; $headers .= "Content-Type:
text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1". "\r\n"; $headers .=
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit". "\r\n";

this helps.

Best regards,
