mail() in XAMPP?

Postby Basinator » 30. March 2012 08:07

Hi!
I am doing an internship at an IT company.

I want to send a mail with php mail() I tried both localhost and the SMTP of the company's mail provider (the smtp settings are working in outlook).
Settings
Code: Select all
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/smtp
SMTP = smtp.1und1.de

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


or:
Code: Select all
;SMTP = localhost
; http://php.net/smtp-port
;smtp_port = 25


PHP code:

Code: Select all
   mail($empfaenger, $betreff, $Message,$headers);
   mail("seec1[at]gmx.net", "Sexy Käse", "Hallo du geiles schnitzel", "From: seec1[at]gmx.net");

I dont get any errors messages anymore, so I guess it might be either connected to the company's firewall or the inability to connect to the SMTP.

you only need to configure your mailing system proper.

If you use sendmail - why do you use outlook parameters? sendmail can't "understand" them.
Code: Select all
;eg.
;you wrote SMTP = smtp.1und1.de
;sendmail expects
smtp_server=smtp.1und1.de

sendmail.ini ist very good commented.

Which parameters are you talking about? username, pw? WEll, I simple tried out since I wasnt able to get my mails through with localhost. However, as mentioned before, the firewall might be blocking mails sent from localhost.
