Hopefully someone will be able to answer your problem.  (I can't figure out 
why it works on mine but not on yours -- I didn't do any special mods).

What version of IC are you using?
Do you get any error.log output?
Have you tried using your "OrdersTo" e-mail address on a fictionional 
order?  (Maybe it only works for that address, in that case you should get 
to distinct emails to the same email).

The do-it-yourself route includes:  checkout the [email] tag.  (or is it 
[mail]?).  It is very simple, and you can use it to custom build the emails 
you want to send out.  It might be a usertag.
