It is suggested in Dreamhost’s Formmail syntax chart, that to avoid having robots mine your email address, to just exclude the @mydomain.com from the recipient field, because the system will send it to the local domain by default.
But it doesn’t work for me! I have the following line in my form:
When I try to submit the form, I get the following error message:
[quote]Error: Bad or missing recipient: Please make sure you have filled in the required recipient form field, and that the e-mail address used is hosted with DreamHost.
As a spam-prevention matter, we can now only allow our formmail to forward to email addresses hosted with us. If you’d like the recipient to be an email not hosted with us, please just create an address @yourdomain.com to forward there!
The recipient was: [ myname ]
whereas if I change that line of code to:
…it works correctly.
The form is on the same domain as the recipient email addy, and is all hosted by Dreamhost.
I would really like to make this work-- what am I missing?
