sendmail problems

Postby rossbruniges » 01. March 2004 16:43

First things first I have to say that your software is great! I had totally give up trying to install all this stuff myself so being able to use this was superb!

I have just got one prob though, and hopefully its a small one to sort out;

i have created a php form with which i want to send emails with using the sendmail bit of php, when running the script i get the error message :

Warning: mail(): "sendmail_from" not set in php.ini or custom "From:" header missing in C:\minixampp\htdocs\phpWork\chapter13\email.php on line 6

and in case its needed line 6 of my script is:

if (mail($mailTo, $subject, $body, "From: $mailFrom")) {

the values for the mail function are gained obviously from the form

hope you guys can help, it looks to me like i need to ass something to the php.ini file but as im not sure what to add i thought best thing would be to ask the experts, hope you know the prob!

and also im using the mini version of xampp
Thanks everyone

Ross

need to configure the smtp server part and you need a mail server to point it to if you dont run your own, your isp's should do the trick if it doesnt require auth.

search for php.ini on your computer there will be (or should be) 2 files. i dont know which one is the one wampp uses though... open it and search for SMTP it should have server options around it if you need a sample config private message nigelw and he will help you out.
