Hi All,

I've just built emailing into my SS app, and there seems to be something strange going on with the emails. It sends OK, but the email address I have placed in the from field also receives a copy. I've got the same application on 2 servers, 1 testing and 1 production, and it's doing the same from both. I also tried sending an email through a basic php script using the same addresses, and this behaviour doesn't occur in that case.

Have I missed something?

The application I'm building will be sending hundreds or even thousands of emails a day and we're not wanting them all sent back to us as well, any ideas?

here's the source code if it helps:

public function sendEmail($ID)
		$sub = DataObject::get_by_id('RegistrationSubmission', $ID);
		if ($sub)
			$email = new Email_Template();
			$email->to = $sub->Email;
			$email->from = GFConst::email_from_name . '<' . GFConst::email_from . '>';
			$email->subject = GFConst::submission_subject;
			$email->ss_template = GFConst::submission_template;

Anybody? Is this a bug or the way it's supposed to work, if the former, how can I fix it, if the latter, how can I disable it?
