    [php] cannot reply easily to mail

    Level 7
      I am (for now, until I have worked through DP's book ;-)) using a feedback form
      that seems fine, apart from this:
      the sender's email address shows up allright, but I cannot reply to the email
      by hitting the reply button, only by clicking on the actual address.

      I hope this is the relevant php:
      _________
      mail($mailto, $subject, $messageproper, "From: \"$email\" <$email>\r\nReply-To:
      \"$name\" <$email>\r\nX-Mailer: chfeedback.php 2.04" );
      __________

      Do I need to lose the \"$name\"? (I would of course experiment, were it not for
      the site being live).

          edit: the code underneath works fine with an email client like TheBat! but not
          with Outlook Express.
