PHP 5.3.0 won't send mail on Leopard

Postby Ron Newman » 24. August 2009 02:55

I installed XAMPP 1.7.2a on Leopard, and executed the following PHP script, both from the command line and via HTTP:
Code: Select all

ini_set('display_errors', true);

$result = mail("",
    "This is a test of mail from PHP " . PHP_VERSION,
   "Test subject for mail from PHP " . PHP_VERSION);
print("This is PHP " . PHP_VERSION . ".\n");
print("Result of calling mail is $result\n");


The script printed "Result of calling mail is 1", indicating success, and it displayed no error message. However, it never actually sent any mail.

You will not be able to send mail out of your Mac unless you install/configue postfix (or something like that.) I don't know of any way to "talk" to via PHP. There are a number of websites that have tutorials on how to set up mail from PHP on a Mac so google for them. There may be an answer in this forum so search for that as well.
