Strange Problem w/E-mailing within domain
I have a script (written in PHP, but I don't think that matters) that e-mails form input to an administrator. For illustration purposes, I'll say the script is at http://www.domain.com/script.php and the administrator's e-mail address is email@example.com. We're using Linux and Apache v1.3.6.
Here's the problem. Using PHP's mail function and attempting to send the results to the above-mentioned e-mail address, it fails every time (yes, it's a valid e-mail address). In fact, it fails for ANY e-mail address @domain.com, and yet it WORKS for ANY other e-mail address (like firstname.lastname@example.org).
So just plain old e-mail tests to email@example.com work fine. And the script works fine. But somewhere there's a problem with the script sending the e-mail within the domain where the script resides.
Very confused and very grateful for any help you might have.

When you tested the form, did you fill out your email field? 'cause if you didn't, then your script couldn't send your email since it didn't have an email server to send it from...I saw it happened to some people.Jake - iValueHost, LLC - http://www.ivaluehost.net

The destination e-mail address is hard-coded into the script, and PHP handles the mailing from the server on which it resides. As for where the e-mail comes from, if an e-mail address is supplied, then it is used. If not, it defaults to an address on the server.
Again, everything works fine EXCEPT when the hard-coded e-mail address is an address on the same domain where the script is being run.
