Hi here,

I have set up a PHP mail function.  It is working when I set my address as the recipient, but when I change it to my client's address (which is a must) - the client never receives the email.

Please help!  My code is shown below.  I have noticed when I recieve the message, it says the following in the message headers:

Return-Path: <nobody@lion.host-care.com>
Received: from lion.host-care.com (lion.host-care.com [66.7.216.224])

Even though I set the from address in the headers?  Could it be that my clients email account is blocking mail from lion.host-care.com ?  My mail service is run by Google and it recieves it fine?

Many thanks,

Jayden
