"no/bad recipient" error for matt's formmail script

Hi!

I'm having a problem with Matt Wright's FORMMAIL.pl script - however, I believe the problem is in the HTML page with the form that actually accesses the script. After I fill in the info on the form and click SUBMIT - I get a screen saying there is no recipient specified. I've checked the HTML several (thousand) times and there is indeed a hidden input field with name=recipient.

As for the script itself, I have tried several different approaches, including leaving the generic code as provided by the script author and also changing the @recipients to specifically the email address I want the information sent to. Neither of these make a difference. I get the same error page.

Help, help, help!  Thanks!

First of all, everyone is going to tell you to use the FormMail version from http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/

It is secure, maintained and well written.

Let's start from there first and see if there is still a problem.

Hey!

Tintin thanks for your advice. I installed the nms_formmail on my own site and it seems to be working fine. Little, if any, modifications. The real test will come when I install it on my client's server. I'm sure it will be good to go.

Thanks for your help. Still kinda mystified as to why the old script stopped working. Especially since I explicityly specifed the names in @recipients to match the recipient in the hidden field on the form. Gah!  Well, whatever. This is working now....so Happy Friday!

Thanks again and Enjoy!
