the Email don't go at all to the users

That would mean that there's nothing wrong with the code. Most likely your email is marked as spam and moved to the spam folder.

Hi Mr. pritaeas how are you sir, thanks for the fast replay but sir I checked my junk Email and nothing there. what will be the problem then.
Thanks again sir.

If the "to" equals the "from" it won't be sent either. Other than that, it's hard to guess. Perhaps email server restrictions.

the Email don't go at all to the users

Does this mean that no users ever get an email? Or does it mean that not all users get a mail, but some users get a mail?

thanks Mr.pritaeas you give me the key it was the $to='$USERemail'; it should be without the Quotation marks it should be $to=$USERemail;
