mail() not working in XAMPP1.7.3

Postby shinokada » 20. May 2010 17:59

I am trying to send email with php mail() function.

It works without any problem in XAMPP1.7.1 but the same application does not work in XAMPP 1.7.3

I have the following SMTP set up in php.ini.

Code: Select all
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/smtp
; SMTP = localhost

;For my school use
;SMTP = schoolmail.myschool.org

;For home use
SMTP = smtp.mybroadband.net

; http://php.net/smtp-port
smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/sendmail-from
; sendmail_from = postmaster@localhost

; For Unix only.  You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
; http://php.net/sendmail-path
;sendmail_path = "\"C:\xampp173\sendmail\sendmail.exe\" -t"



I will appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance.

Have you enabled error reporting?

what error messages are occurring?

check your syntax, see this:

Good Luck

Thanks for your reply.

How can I enable the error log?

PHP supports multiple types of error reporting, including logging

http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.e ... orting.php

http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.error-log.php

these are reflected as well in php.ini. Just search for 'error' in php.ini (its all defaulted off in XAMPP)

Is this your own code? (grokking other's code is muy difícil) -- You might look for a function fix in PHP, 1.7.1 had PHP 5.2.9 and 1.7.3 has 5.3.1

After I wrote that I realized if it is not your code, you might want to find a different PHP example/psge/script that uses a mail function and test it. then you will know if its the script or your install of XAMPP/PHP. You also might diff the two php.ini files, to see if some other parameter is out of line.

these are only my thoughts, no guarantees.
