    Troubleshooting email - fun, fun. Your telecom setup may not work, you might have typed in your phone number wrong, your server may not send these messages, your mobile provider may discard messages as spam, a million other things could be wrong, but this code does work. If it doesn't work on your specific setup, try sending mail from your regular email client to your mobile and be sure you can get that to work. Then try adding your mobile to Admin/Email/Send Copy of Order Confirmation Emails To. The email will be clipped but it will help you verify whether you can receive messages from your server. Beyond that, you will need to follow up with your service provider and see if they're blocking or dropping these messages.

    Whoops -I responded before I got your edits. I thought it was a telecom problem.
    What version of Zen Cart are you using?

    Great Idea. How many times have you been out and about wondering if you were missing sales. Just wanted to add a different twist to this method. Does not require a mod.

    In Admin...Go to: Send Copy of Order Confirmation Emails To
    Please make any necessary changes

    Send Copy of Order Confirmation Emails To
    Send COPIES of order confirmation emails to the following email addresses, in this format: Name 1 <email@address1>, Name 2 <email@address2>

    Put your cell number in as a copy such as , NewOrder <5053516454@cingular.net>

    Then you will get a message with most details including the order no, amount, customer etc. (Takes a little more space on your phone and possible cents but more info)

    You can also configure Outlook or Outlook Express to reply to the cell phone number when it gets an order. (Of course your puter would need to be on and checking mail ever so often. Method one sends all orders, and method 2 can be set to send all except free or $0 amount orders.

    Never could get the mod to work but this works also, and a very good idea.

    Thanks.

    As noted in post 25, you will likely get cut off before useful information is delivered.
    That's why I wrote this mod.

    You say you couldn't get it to work.
    Can you tell me specifically what happened when you installed it?

    Thanks,

    Not really, it delivers all needed information.
