Hi Hey thanks for the help. However, I have found that I am barking up the wrong tree. I inserted a test script and found that it worked. So then I disabled everything in my script that accesses the database and essentially just left the mail() part. This also worked. So there must be something in the data that I select that is stopping the email going out. Perhaps a control character or similar. Is this possible. Is there a way that I should be sanitising the data that comes from the mysql. Thanks.

Ask your hosting provider to check their fine print. if you have access check for php logged errors in a file called error_log, typically in webhome but maybe in the folder where your scripts live. Maybe also check in /home/$account/mail/new for email logged messages. Make up a simple mail test in PHP, also try UNIX mail command if you have shell access. mail your_email at your_domain -s "test" < some_test_file On 05/30/2014 05:27 AM, patrick wrote: > On 5/30/2014 7:19 am, Paul Waring wrote: >> It's highly unlikely that the limit will show in phpinfo(), since >> there's no built-in functionality for limiting mail in PHP that I'm >> aware of (except disabling the mail() function altogether).
