Question

Form Mail problems on new server


I have a new server at ThePlanet (Server Matrix).

I use a PHP email form that sends information to us - as well as sends a confirmation email to the sender.

I use this form script on several servers so I am somewhat familiar with it - yet I have not run into this problem before:

On the emails that get generated from the form - I now get a bunch of header crap in the email. (emails are sent in plain text)

Here is what I get in the email that comes to us:

Code:
Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="=_7e8dcad29a6a0b5f535aaa82ceb135ce"



This is a MIME encoded message.



--=_7e8dcad29a6a0b5f535aaa82ceb135ce

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1


[Actual form data is here ...]


--=_7e8dcad29a6a0b5f535aaa82ceb135ce--
Anyone have any idea why the new server would be handling the form any differently - or what I should look for?

Something is making the script confused about the need to send plain text emails. It's sending MIME encoded messages but botching the formatting so you see the MIME headers as well as the message.

Yes - all the same versions.

These particular forms I just moved over from the old server and only changed the directory and sendmail paths.

There are 5-total and they all do the same thing.

Someone just told me that this might have something to do with the configuration of 'mod_mime' - but what it could be escapes me.

Anyone?

I think you're enclosing an attachment with your messages and the message does not contain only plain text characters, but some other media too.

would be more helpful if you show us whole message?

What I posted in the first post is the whole email (other than whatever message is entered - which varies).

There are no attachments - just a plain text contact form that I just moved over from another server where it still works fine. The same form also works fine on several other servers - just not this one.

It is something to do with the new server - I am pretty certain.

Well, I switched to the Perl version of the email form and the problem went away - so I guess my problem is semi-solved.

Anyone have an idea why the PHP script adds that crap but the Perl version doesn't ?
