I want the following: "please@dont.reply" to show up.

Postby openbody » Tue Aug 09, 2011 2:15 am

Hi in the following code I would not like the receiver of the email to be able to see the server mailer address. Instead I would like please@dont.reply or something to that affect.

Please assist. :)


$name = $_POST["name"];
$feedback = $_POST["feedback"];
$from = $_POST["from"];
$verif_box = $_POST["verif_box"];

$feedback = stripslashes($feedback);
$name = stripslashes($name);
$from = stripslashes($from);

if(md5($verif_box).'a4xn' == $_COOKIE['tntcon']){

mail("your.email@here.com", 'index.php: '.$name, $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']."\n\n".$feedback, "From: $from");
mail($from, "Do not reply!",
"Thank you! Your email form has been submitted successfully. Please do not reply to this email.");

} else if(isset($feedback) and $feedback!=""){

header("Location: index.php?name=$name&from=$from&feedback=".urlencode($feedback)."&wrong_code=true");
} else {
echo "no variables received, this page cannot be accessed directly";

This is done in the HEADERS section of the mail function.

$headers = 'FROM: Do Not Reply[noreply@mydomain.com]'."\r\n";

for more info, php.net/mail

Return to “PHP coding => Mail”
