f



when receiving the mail(php mail function), the variable's last value is getting converted to $ or # replacing the digit

Below is my code:
But when I receive the mail, I don't get the last two digits in the $post_url.
I tried displaying the same message on the page and it displayes $post_url properly.
But when I receive the mail, I get the value of $post_url as www.32minutesforum.com/post_clicked.php?id$.
where as I should get www.32minutesforum.com/post_clicked.php?id<some number>.
i.e. www.32minutesforum.com/post_clicked.php?id15
Please help!

Insufficient information.  For instance, what's in 
$_SESSION['reply_post_id'] when you send the email?  What's actually in 
the source of the email you receive?

Also, why are you using stripslashes()?  Is magic_quotes_gpc() enabled 
on your system?  If so, it should be OFF.

BTW - your routine is VERY UNSAFE.  It would be very easy for a hacker 
to use your script to send spam to a lot of people.

Hi Jerry,
Thanks for the suggestion.
I used filtervar in my email string.
The message as getting displayed on tha same page after sending the mail is:
"

A mail has been sent to you and the post creator.

But when I receive the mail in the mail box:
It appears as below:
"

I checked in php.ini. Please suggest. Magic_quotes_gpc is off. 
Please also suggest, how do I restrict hackers/spammers.

Regards

(Top posting fixed)

OK, if you're not using magic_quotes_gpc, then you shouldn't be using 
stripslashes().  Also, if all you have is something like "id32", you 
don't need to use htmlentities().  It won't hurt something like "id32", 
but it won't help, either.

However, neither of these should cause the problem you're seeing.  If 
your data and code is as you say, I don't see any reason for it.

But again - *exactly what* is in $_SESSION['reply_post_id']?  I really 
don't care what your code prints out - what is in the variable?  The 
easiest way is to echo the value and look at the page source (NOT the 
html output!).

The same with the email you've received.  If you're looking at the html 
version, what's in the email source?

As for being unsafe - maybe it is and you just chose bad names. 
Something like $_SESSION['post_email'] to me would mean a value which 
came from a field in a POSTed form.  Maybe you're meaning the address 
you want to send the email to, and it's coming from a profile or 
similar.  If the latter, then you don't have a problem (other than a 
confusing variable name).

P.S. Please don't top post.  Thanks.

It looks like you are sending the e-mail with the 
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable" header set but you haven't 
suitably encoded the content.  Either drop the quoted printable header 
from your e-mail or properly encode the body!

Quoted printable encoding treats an equal sign as an escape character 
followed by two hexadecimal digits for the ASCII code of a character. 
So it is the quoted printable encoding (not PHP!) that's changing =25 at 
the end of your URL to the % character in the mail.

At a minimum, you'll need to encode the equals sign as =3D in the e-mail 
(i.e., "post_clicked.php?id=3D25") -or- drop the quoted printable header 
from the e-mail.  Better yet would be to run your entire e-mail message 
body through PHP's quoted_printable_encode function.

Really, though, it's not a PHP problem but a mismatch between your mail 
headers specifying the quoted printable encoding and your body not 
actually being encoded.

Hi John-Paul,

Thanks a lot for this. I broke my head a lot into this.
I tried using quoted_printable_encode but its showing undefined function even though I have php 5.3.8. But I renoved the "quoted-printable encoding" from header and it worked.

Thanks a lot
