    I think it's the fact it's executed within an IF statement that threw me. In my mind it seems strange to have a statement where it's saying "if it doesn't send do this", without having actually already asked it to send. But I have to get used to these short hands in coding.

    I should probably get around to doing a bit more reading on classes.

    Many thanks,
    You don't need to do it like that if you don't want, but it saves a few wasted lines I suppose. You're most welcome as well .

    As an (ahem) 'experienced' programmer, brought up on procedural code and functions, I still sometimes find them hard to follow.
    Object oriented programming? Yeah I agree, although for small applications theres really no need for OOP practices. In fact, some people don't use OOP. I know a friend who is a pretty experienced PHP programmer and until recently he just organised code using structured functions, PHP constants, etc.
