Emails won't send

Hi Ray

Been trying to modify a contact form that works without success.

As a test, I've created a really simple form - but the email isn't sent.

I'm using the latest version of the extension, so can't fathom it out.

Files attached

Cheers

Chris

Try creating a blank page that sends an email with:

php:
<?php

$to      
'nobody@example.com';
$subject 'the subject';
$message 'hello';
$headers 'From: webmaster@example.com' "\r\n" .
    
'Reply-To: webmaster@example.com' "\r\n" .
    
'X-Mailer: PHP/' phpversion();

mail($to$subject$message$headers);
?>



If that doesn't send, then that implies it is an issue with your SMTP server and not the code. If that works, then I'd probably need FTP access and a url to look at the page and test it to see why it isn't working on your page.

That page doesn't seem to exist on the server.

Can you put up the test page that worked somewhere? I want to take a look at that too.

I'm not sure why but I had to manually update a configuration setting by adding the line:

$Email->Mailer->UseSendmailOptions = false;

That seems to have fixed it. You will probably have to do that on other email server behaviors for this site.
