are you trying to use the mercurymail as the server?

If not, then you can specify any SMTP host in the php.ini file

opeen that file and look for;
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
;SMTP = localhost
;smtp_port = 25


change it to

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = smtp.yourisp.com
smtp_port = 25


obviously, yourisp.com must be a valid SMTP server.

If you are trying to use mercurymail as the mail server then follow this;

hi,

i faced a new problem.

i have this error when trying to send to a email under address of yahoo.com and hotmail.com.

Warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 553 We do not relay non-local mail, sorry. in D:\Applications\xampp\htdocs\checkout.php on line 72

How to solve this? i believe even on localhost, i can still send it out of localhost. Do i have to configure anything on mercury or something ?

:D

I guess you entered yahoo.com or hotmail.com as your smtp server?
This is not allowed, because this would allow everybody to send as much spam as they want. You won't find any public SMTP server which relays non-local mails.

You have to create your own smtp service (if you don't already have one) or you have to send mail to your public mail account with foregoing authentication.

So what entries do you have here now:

Code: Select all
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = smtp.yourisp.com
smtp_port = 25

i dled the Pegasus Mail v4.41 for Windows, 32-bit for Win98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista.
What is it for ? does it replace mercury or have to be run together with mercury?

i am running on localhost, trying to send mail to xxx@yahoo.com.

You can use your gmail account to send mail, but you can not do with yahoo (it need pop before smtp, so you must have paid yahoo account).
From gmail account, you can send mail to any email address.

Please search PHPGMailer to get the suitable script.

Hi, i had problems sending mail using localhost (xampp) but i fix it like this:

I shut down my mercury service, so i think that you dont have to use mercury if you sending mail trough localhost, some web application or form.

I configured xampp php.ini settings, SMTP and smtp_port same as outgoing mail server for my e-mail account i recieved in my Outlook express (if you dont have configure it, because i think xampp need to use this account when sending trough localhost, dont know why).

So if your e mail account in outlook use outgoing mail server example: mail.example.com use this in php.ini settings, SMTP=mail.example.com and smtp_port=25.

If you're using gmail configure it in outlook,and your php.ini settings, but in that case use gmail smtp_port, think it's 465.
