Error message when using php form on XAMPP

Postby lcaselyhayford » 01. February 2006 17:06

Hi All,

I keep getting this error message when I test my php script on XAMPP. I have a simple contact form on my web page through which I want to enter and submit messages to an email address.

However I keep getting this error message.

Does anyone have any ideas please?

you have failed to specify a valid SMTP in your php.ini...please read the php.ini under apache\bin for more information.

Hope it helps.

Hi,

Could you please let me know how to specify a valid SMTP in the php.ini?

This is what the SMTP looks like at the moment in my php.ini file.

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = localhost
smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
;sendmail_from = me@example.com

Any Ideas?

Thanks

Well, this error msg tell that, your system cannot send out email using localhost with port 25.

So, have you set up a mail server in your local machine? e.g. mecury... A mail server can deliver mail to your client.
