Replacing /usr/sbin/sendmail path in windows

Postby traffex » 20. June 2004 19:04


I installed XAMPP succesfully and everything is running just fine. Greate software kits by the way.

But i have still two question:

1 - What is the Path to php mail function in XAMPP? Comparable with
/usr/sbin/sendmail in Linux?

2 - I have a Perl script which uses Sendmail:

SENDMAIL, "|$sendmail -t";
print SENDMAIL $mailmsg;

How should i replace this? Since I don't have Sendmail with XAMPP?
Does it make sens if I just replace it with Mailto()? Or something like that?

That code snippet needs replacing. See XAMPP Perl ships with both Mail::Mailer and Net::SMTP. Use MercuryMail as mail transfer agent, also part of XAMPP.

I have also

Usage: SENDMAIL.EXE [-h localhostname] [-r smtphost] [-m transport]
