I suggest that you add code that includes an email address in the FROM field and retest.

Were would I add that in? would it go in the php.ini or the php script? or what code do i use. I see that there is no from. Wouldn't that need to be their email address?

I don't know PHP, but the error you indicated in your post is indicative of IIS SMTP complaining about no FROM address included in the email.  I would expect you to build the email in the PHP code.

According to the SMTP failure message you posted, the email is going to 'info@kcstreet.com."  This issue is a PHP code issue, not an IIS/SMTP issue.

Here is VBScript I use to test SMTP relay.  just replace the following information (in the script), save the script and run it:

- .Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") ="Your Server Name (FQDN) Here"
- strSender = "sender@yourdomain.com"
- strRecipient = "recipient@somedomain.com"

Cut and past the text inbetween the <code start> & </code stop> tags below.  Leave out the <code start> & </code stop> lines.  Save it to something like, SmtpTest.vbs and double-click it.  a Message box pops when it is complete, check your inbox for email.  If it never arrives, pull the SMPT logs from the server and look for the smtp conversation that matches the time you ran the script.

Have fun...

Is there an include file associated with your script?  I see a call to a function/subroutine called "mail".  The line is: $success = mail($webmaster, $emailsubject, $body, $headers);

But I do not see any code, in what you included, that includes a function definition.  If you can find that function and post it, I may be able to help out to resolve the PHP issue.
