This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

Sendmail goes to-BUlk-folder

Posted by weisswolfen (weisswolfen), 28 August 2005
I'm using a PHP sendmail for my web site, but emails go to -Bulk Folder - instead of -Inbox-. I'm not very knowledgeable in PHP , there is any problem with the coding? Any suggestions? Thanks a lot.
This is the code:

if(!empty($HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_mail']) || !empty($HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_message']) || !empty($HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_subject']) || !empty($HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_name']))
     $to = "";
     $subject = stripslashes($HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_subject']);
     $body = stripslashes($HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_message']);
     $body .= "\n\n---------------------------\n";
     $body .= "Mail sent by: " . $HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_name'] . " <" . $HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_mail']  . ">\n";
     $header = "From: " . $HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_name'] . " <" . $HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_mail'] . ">\n";
     $header .= "Reply-To: " . $HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_name'] . " <" . $HTTP_POST_VARS['sender_mail'] . ">\n";
     $header .= "X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion() . "\n";
     $header .= "X-Priority: 1";
     if(@mail($to, $subject, $body, $header))
           echo "output=sent";
     } else {
           echo "output=error";
} else {
     echo "output=error";
?>e code:

It looks like your mail client is seeing something that makes your email look "bulk"ish ... I couldn't see anything obvious from the text you posted, mind you.   Suggestion - have a look at the headers you get in one of these "bulk" emails and the headers that you get in regular "inbox" email, and play about with the PHP to make it look more like the inbox.
