I have followed some advice i was given a while ago and spent some time searching for answers but still cant get sendmail to work. If anyone can help that would be great. apollo and timhuntington resolve to the same ip and I have tried using apollo in both places. The error i keep getting is 'connect time out'. I have asked my host for instructions and have followed them by using apollo and username and password for a mailbox i set up.
; configuration for fake sendmail
; if this file doesn't exist, sendmail.exe will look for the settings in
; the registry, under HKLM\Software\Sendmail
; you must change mail.mydomain.com to your smtp server,
; or to IIS's "pickup" directory. (generally C:\Inetpub\mailroot\Pickup)
; emails delivered via IIS's pickup directory cause sendmail to
; run quicker, but you won't get error messages back to the calling
; smtp port (normally 25)
; the default domain for this server will be read from the registry
; this will be appended to email addresses when one isn't provided
; if you want to override the value in the registry, uncomment and modify
;default_domain= Not needed
; log smtp errors to error.log (defaults to same directory as sendmail.exe)
; uncomment to enable logging
; create debug log as debug.log (defaults to same directory as sendmail.exe)
; uncomment to enable debugging
; if your smtp server requires authentication, modify the following two lines
; if your smtp server uses pop3 before smtp authentication, modify the
; following three lines
; to force the sender to always be the following email address, uncomment and
; populate with a valid email address. this will only affect the "MAIL FROM"
; command, it won't modify the "From: " header of the message content
; sendmail will use your hostname and your default_domain in the ehlo/helo
; smtp greeting. you can manually set the ehlo/helo name if required
php config file mail function section:
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = localhost
smtp_port = 25
; For Win32 only.
;sendmail_from = postmaster@localhost
; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
sendmail_path = "\"C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.exe\" -t"
; Force the addition of the specified parameters to be passed as extra parameters
; to the sendmail binary. These parameters will always replace the value of
; the 5th parameter to mail(), even in safe mode.
; Add X-PHP-Originating-Script: that will include uid of the script followed by the filename
mail.add_x_header = Off
; Log all mail() calls including the full path of the script, line #, to address and headers
;mail.log = "C:\xampp\apache\logs\php_mail.log"
Any help appreciated,
