and line 81 is : mail($emailaddress,“New Registration”,$etext,$headers);
and here is the full code:

[php] <?
$emailaddress = "mail@server.com";

$name = $HTTP_GET_VARS['name'];	
$dob = $HTTP_GET_VARS['dob'];	
$email = $HTTP_GET_VARS['email'];	
$eyecolour = $HTTP_GET_VARS['eyecolour'];	
$haircolour = $HTTP_GET_VARS['haircolour'];	
$height = $HTTP_GET_VARS['height'];	
$shoesize = $HTTP_GET_VARS['shoesize'];	
$height = $HTTP_GET_VARS['height'];	
$uploadimage = $HTTP_GET_VARS['image1'];	

$etext = "<html><head></head><body>" .

$headers = 'From: <!-- e -->mail@server.com<!-- e -->' . "rn" .
	'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();
		
mail($emailaddress,"New Registration",$etext,$headers);

?>[/php]

Please help me.

Sounds like a permission problem. What did you find when searching the internet for the warning message? Is the windows server hosted, or is it your own machine? If hosted, have you contacted your host concerning this problem?
