    Not really sure where to post this, but I have a bit of a problem. I have moved all my Alabanza accounts to our NOC in Phoenix running cpanel/WHM and now their scripts that use formmail produce this error:

    Sorry I can\'t send to domain.com. Is domain.com on this server ?

    These scripts worked just fine on the other servers, so I am sure there is something wrong with a global setup with the cpanel servers. Any insights?

    Is the script trying to send to someone offnetwork? That would be the problem. The clone likes local addressing. We moved most of our people that use form to mail to their own local copy of some other script (Matt\'s, Alien Form, and so on) instead.

    FormMail and Cpanel don\'t mix. We\'ve had constant problems with this. The form appears to work, but emails are not sent. I\'ve resorted to telling the customers that formmail will not work on our servers. That always makes our customers very happy to hear that.

    You could also download a copy of Matt\'s formmail and place it in the /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys directory... Then, to restrict usage only to domains on your system, you would add these lines above where it says \"Check referring URL\"

    $IPLIST=\"/etc/localdomains\";
    $listlen=`cat /etc/localdomains |wc -l`;

    if(open(IPS,$IPLIST)) {

    while (<IPS>) {
    ($name) = split;
    chomp $name;

    push (@referers, $name);

    }

    }

    Let\'s try this again.. I\'m not exactly sure why the wink was there, since it wasn\'t ; ) ...
    [code:1:9997769d9e]
    $IPLIST=\"/etc/localdomains\";
    $listlen=`cat /etc/localdomains |wc -l`;


    if(open(IPS,$IPLIST)) {

    while (<IPS>***) {
    ($name) = split;
    chomp $name;

    push (@referers, $name);

    }

    }


    # Check Referring URL
    &check_url;
    [/code:1:9997769d9e]

    Delete the *** after it says <IPS>
