I have a PHP web donation form that pre-populates fields and uses $redirect to take the user to PayPal payment page. It was working during the summer during early testing, but now returns a PayPal error page that reads:

"Error Detected: We cannot process this transaction because there is a problem with the PayPal email address supplied by the seller. Please contact the seller to resolve the problem."

What's odd is that if one pastes the exact same URL into a browser, it goes right to the payment page with no errors. I've tried using both POST and GET; the results are the same. Here is the URL (with names and email changed):


Is there something going on with Paypal's servers that doesn't work with redirect? As I said, this form and URL was working, using Redirect, maybe 3 months ago. What else might be causing this?

It shoudl work OK. I would suspect some sort of encoding problem. It's hard to say without seeing the actual URL being redirected.
