How to add a bcc to this script?

Hi!

I'm using this "recommend this site" script, http://portfolio.toefur.com/www/recommend_php and I'd like to see who is using this script: I'd like to get a bcc email sent to my personal email address with the info of sender, receiver and text used.
Do you have any ideas how to modify this script that way?

Greetings,

Well, we're going to go into the "if you do not know much about php you should not change any of the following lines" section. :-)


/// if you do not know much about php you should not change any of the following lines.......
if ($var=="tak"){


      $nota = nl2br($nota);
      $nota = eregi_replace("<br>","\n",$nota);
      $nota = eregi_replace("<br />","\n",$nota);


      $mailTo="$email2";


!!!CHANGE THIS LINE:      $mailHeaders="From:$email1 \nReply-To:$email1";
!!!INTO THIS LINE: $mailHeaders="From:$email1 \nReply-To:$email1 \nCc: $CARBONCOPYEMAILVARIABLE";


            if ($imie) {
            $mailSubject="$imie $subimie";
            } else {
            $mailSubject=$noimie;
            }

            if ($nota)
            {
            $mailBody="$nota<br>$imie\nLink: $adreswww";
            } else {
            $mailBody="$autonota\n$imie\nLink: $adreswww";
            }

$mailBody = eregi_replace("<br>","\n",$mailBody);

///////wysyla maila do adresata /////////
mail($mailTo, $mailSubject, $mailBody, $mailHeaders);


That should do it...

Hi!

Thanks a lot, it's working.
But hot to make the Cc a Bcc?
I already tried to make
$mailHeaders="From:$email1 \nReply-To:$email1 \nCc: $CARBONCOPYEMAILVARIABLE";
to
$mailHeaders="From:$email1 \nReply-To:$email1 \nBcc: $CARBONCOPYEMAILVARIABLE";

but that's not working.

What version of PHP are you running? On what system? I don't think PHP's mail() function supports the BCC header on PHP versions < 4.3.0 running on Windows systems.

You know, you could just add another call to the mail() function:

mail($mailTo, $mailSubject, $mailBody, $mailHeaders);
mail('your-bcc-email-address@youdomain.tld', $mailSubject, $mailBody, $mailHeaders);

That way, the original recipient receives the email and so do you, but the original recipient will not see your email address in the TO or CC headers.

One last thing: PHP recommends that in your "Additional Email Headers" argument of the mail() function, you use "\r\n" instead of just "\n" to separate the headers. This helps fix certain bugs on Windows systems that look for a carriage return instead of / in addition to a newline character.

So, you would change this:

$mailHeaders="From:$email1 \nReply-To:$email1 \nCc: $CCEMAILVARIABLE\nBcc: $BCCEMAILVARIABLE";

... to this:

$mailHeaders="From:$email1\r\nReply-To:$email1\r\nCc: $CCEMAILVARIABLE\r\nBcc: $BCCEMAILVARIABLE";
