Do you mean http://members.evolt.org/email/ ?

The last message I was able to read was one of those in the 'can't we all
just get along' thread. The problem also cropped up for the first time
after reading the next one in that thread.

Alas, I don't get errors in php. Even when I set error_reporting(E_ALL); at
th top of a file, and put in something wrong deliberately, I don't get any
errors. Weeird. Anyway, by use of 'or die()' I've managed to get it down to
the mysql_select_db that isn't working - I tried rewriting the whole db
section, but it still didn't work at all.
