Mercury setup problems

Postby Georgezx9 » 15. September 2014 01:05

Hi all.

I have installed xamp and mercury, to allow me to test on my home PC various sites I am developing. I don't need it to send to external mail addresses as yet.

However I cannot get the mail function to work from a script, but it does from elsewhere. I am confused now as well, by the postmaster and the root users. I assume Mercury sends from postmaster because that's the username in sendmail.ini?

Mercury successfully sends a test mail from postmaster@localhost to root@localhost.com, note its from ..localhost, not localhost.com - why?
Outlook successfully sends a mail from root@localhost.com to root@localhost.com

Outlook sends a test mail to root@localhost.com from root, I assume Outlook sends from root to root as this is the only account set up, but why cant it use postmaster, it would not even let me set up a postmaster account

PHP script does not work - this is my biggest issue?, does the pop 3 user have to match the two ini files.

The various settings I have changed are:

Sendmail.ini
smtp_server=localhost
auth_username=postmaster
auth_password=postmaster
hostname=localhost

php.ini
sendmail_from = postmaster@localhost
smtp_port = 25
