Hi Alex,

Thank you for trying that out!

It must be some difference in setup then.

I’ll get back to you when I know more.

Thanks again,

If you got the resulting email (probably twice), then that too works, and there must be some config difference between your hosting account and mine. So I changed the shell call that sends the email to include outputting the results, as below:
