testing on your local system is not recommended. many testing server packages don't include an SMTP server, the only one I am aware of that does include an SMTP server is XAMPP, and you need to make sure that it is configured properly in order to use it.

You should test sending the email using your live server instead.

Xampp/ Mamp

I am using the Mac version (mamp). Do you know how I would configure this to test locally?

MAMP does not include an SMTP server.

Email Verification

I saw a previous post from 'MacMaker' and your response regarding Fasthosts which I am using and the modifications to the registration page and the mail_php.PHP files as follows:

I've added this to line 1 of registration page:
<?php ini_set("sendmail_from", "sjoiner@teampropertymanagement.co.uk"); ?>

And changed this ( in the mail_php.PHP file)
$mailObj = mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader);

To this:
$mailObj = mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader, "-fsjoiner@teampropertymanagement.co.uk");

But still know verification email.

see the following page from fasthost regarding using scripts to send emails:
?article_id=65

the email server needs to be set to smtp.fasthosts.co.uk:

$WAGLOBAL_Email_Server = "smtp.fasthosts.co.uk" ;


If the email is still not going through, you will need to contact the host to have them look into the SMTP Server error logs to determine why the server is not relaying the message.

Fasthosts Response

I have had correspondence with Fasthosts regarding the issues we are facing and there latest reply was:

"We are currently checking and will send you update regarding this issue. I'd like to request for the email password in your next reply as we need to check results to our diagnostic test. We will trace and see if this got to do with the current script use by this website.I just like to request if they (Webassist) were able to check the sample mailform in the article we sent you as they can configure the current scripts and if they have tested it in their end.Please let me know how it goes."

Where do we go with this?

Regards

Steve
