Hi guys,

I'm trying to get a php script to send an e-mail from localhost to users e-mail address supplied (when htey register to my site) but i get the following error:

Warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 550 RCPT TO:<new@new.com> Relaying not allowed - please use SMTP AUTH in C:\xampp\htdocs\signuppost.php on line 36

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at C:\xampp\htdocs\signuppost.php:36) in C:\xampp\htdocs\signuppost.php on line 38



heres the script for my signuppost.php:


if(isset($_POST['txtemail']))
{
$query="SELECT * FROM tbl_user WHERE u_email='".$_POST['txtemail']."'";
$q=mysql_query($query);
$QRES = mysql_num_rows($q);

if($QRES == "0")
{
$query = "INSERT INTO tbl_user(user_name,user_password,u_email,u_level,user_regdate,`lname`, `address1`, `address2`, `city`, `state`, `zip`, `country`, `phone`) VALUES ('$fname','$password','$email',1,NOW(),'$lname','$add1','$add2','$city','$state','$zip','$country','$phone')";

//echo $query;

$ok=mysql_query($query);
if($ok)
{
$from = "localhost";
$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n";
$headers .= "From: $form <$from>\r\n"."Reply-To: $form<$from>\r\n"."X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion()."\r\n";
$msg = "Dear User, Welcome to my site Thank you for choosing my site.";
mail($email,'Successful Registration with my site',$msg,$headers);

header("location: message.php?msg=suOK");
}
else
{
header("location: message.php?msg=suerr");
}
}else{
header("location: message.php?msg=suem");
}
}


in my php.ini i have:

;for win32 only
SMTP = smtp.localhost
smtp_port = 25


sendmail_from = localhost

Which mail server software do you have on your PC? How is it configured?

I'm using the Mercury mail server which comes with XAMPP, i've started that on the XAMPP control panel and went to status to see that SMTP service is activated.

Anything im missing here? :?

Warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 550 RCPT TO:<new@new.com> Relaying not allowed - please use SMTP AUTH in

Somewhere in Mercury is a setting "Do not permit SMTP relaying of non-local mail", just change this.
