Hi Alex,

Ok, I tried going back to basics just to see
what I could get to work.

I managed to get the ReverseName function to work fine
all by itself in the server.

Then I tried the command mail shell method all by itself.
It looks like the code is executing, but I receive no email!

I’ve listed the code here to see if you spot anything.

<?lc
put "<br><br>"
put "Just before the shellEscape function"
put "<br><br>"

function shellEscape pText

put "Just Inside the shellEscape function"
put "<br><br>"

put "pText = " & pText
put "<br><br>"

repeat for each char tChar in "\`!$" & quote

replace tChar with "\" & tChar in pText

end repeat

return pText

end shellEscape


put "Just after the shellEscape function"
put "<br><br>"

put "Just before the wrapQ function"
put "<br><br>"

-- wrap quotes around text

function wrapQ pText

put "Just Inside the wrapQ function"
put "<br><br>"

return quote & pText & quote

end wrapQ


put "Just after the wrapQ function"
put "<br><br>"


command mail pTo, pSub, pMsg, pFrom, pCc, pBcc, pHtml, pAtts
   local tMsg
   

   put "Inside command mail"
   put "<br><br>"
   
 
   put "pTo = " & pTo
   put "<br><br>"   
   

   put "pSub = " & pSub
   put "<br><br>"
   

   put "pMsg = " & pMsg
   put "<br><br>"

   put "pFrom = " & pFrom
   put "<br><br>"
   
 
   put "pCc = " & pCc
   put "<br><br>"
   

   put "pBcc = " & pBcc
