Here is a little background. The email was sent through forms on a
website. I have been messing with the headers of the PHP scripts.
I did a test of sending an email directly from my email client that goes
through my email server, then it authenticates through my ISP SMTP
server. When this is done it works. So that tells me that the headers on
the PHP script are not correct or not enough email headers.
I hope I explained that right. :)
