forgotten password

Hi guys i have a serious issue with the forgotten password page.

This is my code:

<?php require_once('../Connections/scipt.php');?>
<?php require_once( "../WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php" ); ?>
<?php
function WA_SecurityAssist_Email_1_SendMail($WA_Auth_Parameter){
$WA_MailObject = WA_SecurityAssist_Definition("".((isset($_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"]))?$_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"]:"") ."","".((isset($_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"]))?$_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"]:"") ."","","","","");
$WA_MailObject = WA_SecurityAssist_SendMail($WA_MailObject,"","","",$WA_Auth_Parameter["toAddress"],"",$WA_Auth_Parameter["fromAddress"],$WA_Auth_Parameter["subject"],$WA_Auth_Parameter["mailBody"]);
$WA_MailObject = null;
}// WA_SecurityAssist_Email_1_SendMail

if(isset($_POST["Send_x"])){
//WA SecurityAssist Email object="Mail for Windows"
$WA_Auth_Parameter = array(
"connection" => $scipt,
"database" => $database_scipt,
"tableName" => "users",
"filterColumn" => "email",
"columnValue" => "".((isset($_POST["emailAddress"]))?$_POST["emailAddress"]:"") ."",
"columnType" => "text",
"usernameColumn" => "username",
"passwordColumn" => "password",
"selectColumns" => array(""),
"sessionVariables" => array(""),
"successRedirect" => "",
"failRedirect" => "",
"keepQueryString" => FALSE,
"toAddressColumn" => "email",
"fromAddress" => "sciptADMIN@med.usyd.edu.au",
"fromAddressDisplay" => "Lisa Harvey",
"subject" => "scipt org",
"mailBody" => "User name: [username]\nPassword: [password]",
"emailFunction" => "WA_SecurityAssist_Email_1_SendMail"
);

WA_Auth_ForgotPassword($WA_Auth_Parameter);
}
?>

and this is the error i keep getting

Server Error
500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

If i change the server name to any other name the page spews up

Warning: mail() [function.mail]: Failed to connect to mailserver at "smtp.secureserver.net" port 80, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in D:\Hosting\6038886\html\WA_SecurityAssist\Mail_PHP.php on line 209

you will need to contact your host to determine the correct smtp server to use in order to send emails using the php mail() function.

Using the $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] will not work correctly.

i have used mail.internode.on.net which my provider generic fall back server i normally use when travelling to send emails from my laptop!

It returns a valid value but no email is ever delivered!

$WA_MailObject = WA_SecurityAssist_Definition("mail.internode.on.net","25","mail.internode.on.net","","","");

that server may require authentication to relay emails, in which case it cannot be used with the php mail function.


Please contact your host to determine the correct smtp server to use wit hthe PHP mail() function.

the first thing I would do is add redirects for the look up success and lookup fail in the email password server behavior. make sure to use different pages for the success and fail redirect so you can gauge whether the email is truly being sent.

If it is redirecting to the success page, and you still do not get the email, there are 2 possibilities.

1) The email is being caught in a spam filter, check your spam folder.

2) The smtp server is refusing to relay the email for some reason. It may be that the smtp server will not relay emails for that from address you are using. It may be that the SMTP server will not relay email to the to address you are using. To find out why the email is not being relayed, you will need to contact the host. They will need to examine the smtp servers error logs to see why the email is not being relayed.
