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.
