Debugging email connection

Postby Hamish » 23. April 2012 22:14

Hi,

I am using XAMPP V 1.7.7; Control Panel 3; Windows 7, Service Pack 1.

I am trying to set up an email connection using 'sendmail' - I have read and carried out all the advice contained in 'sendmail-solved' and am now at the point where everything is finally working - except I now get an entry in the Debug log:

12/04/23 21:10:55 ** From address not verified - see http://www.btyahoo.com/verify<EOL>

This is the code and set-up so far:

php.ini:

Code: Select all
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/smtp
 SMTP = mail.btinternet.com
; http://php.net/smtp-port
smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/sendmail-from
sendmail_from = someone@btinternet.com

; For Unix only.  You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
; http://php.net/sendmail-path
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.
;mail.force_extra_parameters =

; 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\php\logs\php_mail.log"



sendmail.ini:
Code: Select all
smtp_server=mail.btinternet.com

; smtp port (normally 25)

smtp_port=25

; SMTPS (SSL) support
;   auto = use SSL for port 465, otherwise try to use TLS
;   ssl  = alway use SSL
;   tls  = always use TLS
;   none = never try to use SSL

smtp_ssl=auto

; 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=localhost

; log smtp errors to error.log (defaults to same directory as sendmail.exe)
; uncomment to enable logging

error_logfile=error.log

; create debug log as debug.log (defaults to same directory as sendmail.exe)
; uncomment to enable debugging

debug_logfile=debug.log

; if your smtp server requires authentication, modify the following two lines

auth_username=someone@btinternet.com
auth_password=******

; if your smtp server uses pop3 before smtp authentication, modify the
; following three lines.  do not enable unless it is required.

;pop3_server=
;pop3_username=
;pop3_password=
; force the sender to always be the following email address
; this will only affect the "MAIL FROM" command, it won't modify
; the "From: " header of the message content

force_sender=someone@btinternt.com

; force the sender to always be the following email address
; this will only affect the "RCTP TO" command, it won't modify
; the "To: " header of the message content

force_recipient=

; 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

hostname=



php code:
Code: Select all
<?php   




$email_to = "someone@btinternet.com";
$name=$row['name'];
$email=$row['email'];
$phone=$row['mobtel'];
$email_from = 'someone@btinternet.com';
$email_subject = "Feedback from website";

$message=("Name:  ").$name. ("\r\n") . ("Email:  ") .$email . ("\r\n") . ("Phone:  ") .$phone;


$sent = mail($email_to, $email_subject, $message);


?>





The queston I ask is - the 'from address' is correct because it is my own email address. So what is happening?

I would appreciate suggestions.

Regards,

'H'

SOLVED

For anyone out there with a similar problem I have managed to come up with a solution - this works.

php.ini

Code: Select all
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/smtp
SMTP = mail.there.com
; http://php.net/smtp-port
smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/sendmail-from
sendmail_from = me@there.com

; For Unix only.  You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
; http://php.net/sendmail-path
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.
;mail.force_extra_parameters =

; Add X-PHP-Originating-Script: that will include uid of the script followed by the filename
mail.add_x_header = on

; Log all mail() calls including the full path of the script, line #, to address and headers
mail.log = "C:\xampp\php\logs\php_mail.log"



sendmail.ini
Code: Select all
smtp_server=mail.there.com
; smtp port (normally 25)

smtp_port=25

; SMTPS (SSL) support
;   auto = use SSL for port 465, otherwise try to use TLS
;   ssl  = alway use SSL
;   tls  = always use TLS
;   none = never try to use SSL

smtp_ssl=auto

; 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=localhost

; log smtp errors to error.log (defaults to same directory as sendmail.exe)
; uncomment to enable logging

error_logfile=error.log

; create debug log as debug.log (defaults to same directory as sendmail.exe)
; uncomment to enable debugging

debug_logfile=debug.log

; if your smtp server requires authentication, modify the following two lines

auth_username=me@bthere.com
auth_password=xxxxx

; if your smtp server uses pop3 before smtp authentication, modify the
; following three lines.  do not enable unless it is required.

pop3_server=mail.there.com
pop3_username=me
pop3_password=xxxxxx
; force the sender to always be the following email address
; this will only affect the "MAIL FROM" command, it won't modify
; the "From: " header of the message content

force_sender=me@bthere.com

; force the sender to always be the following email address

; the "To: " header of the message content

; force_recipient=

; 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

hostname=localhost



php code:
Code: Select all

$email_to = 'you@here.com';
$name=$row['name'];
$email=$row['email'];
$phone=$row['mobtel'];
$email_subject = 'Feedback from website';
$headers = 'From: me@there.com\r\n';

$message='Name:  ' .$name. "\r\n". 'Email:  ' .$email. "\r\n". 'Phone:  ' .$phone;


$sent = mail($email_to, $email_subject, $message, $headers);

 
 if($sent)
 {print "Your mail was sent successfully"; }
 else
 {print "We encountered an error sending your mail"; }
