Dodosmail Error

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to settup a basic form to capture quote requests by email, after reading some threads I choose to use Dodo, unfortunatly I can't get it to work.

 

I've uploaded the php file and the test.html, changed the email in the php as indicated, I fill out the form then get this error when I submit it:

 

DodosMail Error - the owner's server is experiencing techinical difficulties. Please email use to send your email.

 

 

Any ideas? and no I'm not technical ;)

Do you mean Dodos mail? Or Dada Mail (which is often talked about on these forums).

 

It sounds as if you have something wrong in the config. Can you let us know what you have set for the config info (blanking out any private data of course).

It is dodos mail

 

Found the problem, there's an extra # in the code before the your email = bit, I just removed that and it works perfectly.

 

I only spotted it when I went to copy it into here, silly me.

 

Thanks for the help.

I may have found the problem, but I still can't get it to work.

 

I created a form, using dreamweaver, added dodoesmail.php as the action then unploaded it to test.

 

I get this error:

 

DodosMail Error - the required field is not filled.

 

Back

 

yet i haven't made any of the fields required, any ideas.

 

fiddling with the test form gives me the same result, so i don't know where the problem is.

Did you try the included test form to make sure its configured right?

Then modify it for your own use or use it as a template.

If I remember right, you need some of the things in the test form.

I would modify it and see how that goes.

I tried just editing the test.html.

 

 

as soon as I change a field name, such as message to address and test it it say required field message not filled in, and I can' find anywhere where the required fields are defined, even a search for 'message' reveals nothing.

 

 

In short i have lost my rag with this programme as it isn't very intuitive.

 

So are there any other I can use that don't charge for this privileged?
