sendmail

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

sendmail

Postby roasthawg » 17. June 2010 20:04

I've spent the last week reading every post I can find on the internet trying to get my xampp setup to test my .php website out locally. No matter what I try I can't get it to send mail. Mercury isn't working for me and neither is sendmail. I think it might be easier to get sendmail to work with either gmail or hotmail and would LOVE some help... my sendmail.ini file looks like this:

# Example for a user configuration file

# Set default values for all following accounts.
defaults
logfile "C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.log"

# Mercury
account Mercury
host localhost
from root@localhost
auth off

# A freemail service example
account Gmail
tls on
tls_certcheck off
host smtp.gmail.com
from ********@gmail.com
auth on
user *******
password ********

# Set a default account
account default : Gmail


Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

What says the logfile?

P.S.: Dont use gmail furthermore, use googlemail instead (smtp.googlemail.com). I dont think gmail is supported any longer.

When I try live.com the log says that the connection timed out. When I use gmail it says it cannot get the initial ok message from the server. Don't know if this means anything to anyone or not.

Maybe your requests are blocked by a firewall. And did you test googlemail?
