majordomo php web forum

hi there,

i've just installed majordomo and i've made a web form so people can subscribe themselves via this. but the problem is that when the e-mail is sent via this form majordomo dosn't send the subscription verification e-mail to the e-mail address that it was subscribed to, it sends it to the website i think. here is my two php pages.


if(mail($to,$message,"$name $comments $email\n")) {
echo "$email has been ";
echo "d to the Cathedral Schools '$comments' mailing list";
} else {
echo "There was a problem sending the mail. Please check that you filled in the form correctly.";



<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<title>New Page 1</title>


<form action="mail.php" method="post">
E-mail: <input type="text" name = "email" size="20"><br><br>
<select size="1" name="comments">
<option value="smart-board">smart-board</option>
<option value="senior-staff">senior-staff</option>
<option value="senior-support-staff">senior-support-staff</option>
<option value="support-staff">support-staff</option>
<option value="admin-staff">admin-staff</option>
<option value="boarding">boarding</option>
<option value="nurse-staff">nurse-staff</option>
<option value="boarding-tutors">boarding-tutors</option>
<option value="music-tutor">music-tutor</option>
<select size="1" name="name">
<option value="subscribe">subscribe</option>
<option value="unsubscribe">unsubscribe</option>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">



can someone either help me out by telling me how to change the php code so it seams that it actually comes from e-mail address entered on the website. or tell me how to change the configuration of majordomo

This is completely inappropriate for the Newbie forum. You should take this question to the software section on LinuxQuestions or to a majordomo support forum/mail-list/newsgroup.
