I have completed this task but are unable to sent out an e-mail.

I made the following changes to the php.ini file:

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = //My Outgoing mail server

; For Win32 only.
sendmail_from = marius@zorgvliet.com //My e-mail address

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i"winking smiley.
;sendmail_path = //Left blank

Please help?

Hi Marius

I have experienced this problem before. If you have checked everything and all is well, then the problem is most likely because the mail() function included with stock PHP does not support SMTP authentication.

I eventually had to use the PEAR Mail package which is much more comprehensive and supports outgoing mail server authentication.

A quick google search reports the following example:


Hope this helps.
