New Xampp Email Problem

Postby jperson19468 » 10. November 2017 03:39

Trying to configure Xamp v3.2.2 to send email
I receive no error messages and no email(s)

This is what I have in my php.ini File

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/smtp
;SMTP=localhost
; http://php.net/smtp-port
;smtp_port=25

SMTP=smtp.gmail.com
;smtp_port=587
sendmail_from = xxxxxx@gmail.com
sendmail_path = "\"C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.exe\" -t"

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

This is what I have in my sendmail.ini File
; configuration for fake sendmail

[sendmail]

smtp_server=ssl://smtp.gmail.com
smtp_port=465
auth_username=xxxxxxx@gmail.com
auth_password=1234567

Thank You

This looks wrong:

smtp_server=ssl://smtp.gmail.com

Where did you find that? A server usually is only a plain name (smtp.gmail.com), but you applied an URL, which preceeds the protocoll ssl (and even that looks wrong), it could be smtp:// instead but i dont think so. If you like to send encrypted, there should be an option for that in sendmail.ini, but dont preceed the server with something strange.

smtp_server=ssl://smtp.gmail.com has been removed

This is what my sendmail.ini file looks like now
; configuration for fake sendmail

[sendmail]

smtp_port=465
auth_username=xxxxxxx@gmail.com
auth_password=1234567

Thank You

Do you show us the full contents of sendmail.ini?
And what is your PHP script for testing? Please show us the code.

> smtp_port=465
> smtp_port=25

What??

Sorry, but i cannot debug that code for you, i cannot even see if there is any data in MySQL which is found by your formular. Maybe there is no mail sent due to no hits. You also applied different sendmail.ini here, this is chaotic (sorry, but it is) and finally your sendmail.ini totally lacks the setting for smtp_ssl. You have to debug that on yourself, it is quite impossible for me to see if there is any error in Xampp (what i doubt).

OK this is what I have done.
I have downloaded a default copy of fake sendmail for windows. I change sendmail.ini file it a little bit. I will post it here. I am using that copy now.
I have also changed around the send email program and made it more simpler. No database is used. It should just email two input items from the screen that are entered and a constant I will also post that.

sendmail.ini

; configuration for fake sendmail

; if this file doesn't exist, sendmail.exe will look for the settings in
; the registry, under HKLM\Software\Sendmail

[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
; application.

smtp_server=smtp.gmail.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=mydomain.com

; 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=jperson19468@gmail.com
auth_password=xxxxxx

; 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=jperson19468@gmail.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=

; configuration for fake sendmail

[sendmail]

smtp_server=smtp.gmail.com
smtp_port=25
error_logfile=error.log
debug_logfile=debug.log

Due to gmail documentation, smtp.gmail.com does not support port 25. This is my last reply here, i give up. Good luck.
