    i am trying to use bcc so i can see if my pitch to the client is having an effect...but trying this does not seem to work:

    $headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";
    $headers .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\n";
    $headers .= "From: $fname $lname <$email>\nX-Mailer: PHP Automated Mailer";
    $headers .= "bcc: $bcc\n";

    what have i got wrong?

    It looks like you've missed out the \n after the x-mailer header.

    the code should be:


    $headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";
    $headers .= "Content-type: text/html;charset=iso-8859-1\n";
    $headers .= "From: $fname $lname <$email>\n";
    $headers .= "X-Mailer: PHP Automated Mailer\n";
    $headers .= "bcc: $bcc\n";

    if that doesn't fix it you try replacing the \n's with \r\n
