eMail autoresponse/PayPal problem...

RiffRaff Just as a word of caution to those who it also might affect...
My emailer (Outlook) was configured to auto-respond to incoming PayPal 'Notification of an Instant Payment' texts, given that certain wording was used in certain areas, and off went my reply.
Lately, it's all been thrown off course : for some reason, PayPal have decided that some (not all!) advices show the sender as being 'Sendmail@paypal.com on behalf of  fredsmith22@xyzabc.com' as opposed to just 'fredsmith22@xyzabc.com'....
This, of course, has lead to many of my responses being sent to sendmail@pp instead of the customer....
I've tried to get a clarification from PP as to why only some messages are different, and I've had 3 replies....none of which make any sense whatsoever!
So - if you've got a simple 'rule' running in your email system, check it - you might find that your auto-responses are going to the wrong place!

Storyman Hi RiffRaff,

Have you considered using PayPal's IPN? There are several programs that you can use with purchases from your web site. This one does more than just send an email. http://www.idevspot.com/PayDownloadPal.php

If you're selling from ebay this program could be the solution: http://www.idevspot.com/GrigEbaySuite.php

RiffRaff There's that PHP and MySQL again!
Regretfully, I know less than nothing about either!

Storyman For a modest fee they'll install it. Read over the install instructions and see if you think you can follow them. I have the TextAds program and it was extremly easy to install.

RiffRaff But we're not all as bright as you, Storyman!
I suspect from your (many - thank you!) earlier responses that you were not exactly last in line when the old grey matter was dished out!
But I will have a look at the install details and see if can make head or tail!
Cheers again...

Storyman Hi RiffRaff,

They will install the program for $30. BTW I've learned a lot of ways not to do things. Mostly learn by trial and error.

RiffRaff Your modesty is admirable, but I suspect you do yourself an injustice, Storyman!
By the way, BT now claim that their sites do feature both PHP and MySql.....
Last week, "no"...
This week, "yes"....
Next week?....well, who knows....
Probably not even BT's staff!
