Advice on how to setup Universal Email settings

We have an exchange mail server. I am runing php, mysql and Apache on a linux box. I am trying to configure the mail settings in Universal mail in order for users to received email confirmation when submit button is pressed.

I used the example in the Universal mail documentation to see how it works with no luck.

Note: I tried both options "Mail and PEAR Mail using SMPT.

Do I need to configure Debian Linux mail server. I rather use our already mail server on campus. Thanks for any advice you can provide me.

Use Mail unless username and password are required for your smtp server. Most restrict by IP.

To debug, in the file mail_PHP.php... update the code where it says:

$mailObj = mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader);

and add code afterward:

$mailObj = mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader);
var_dump($mailObj);
die();

That may tell you more about why the email won't send.

It is in the Universal Email directory in the root of your site.

Hi Ray,

The web browser now says bool(true) after I press the Submit button on the form i created.

That means the email was successfully sent to your SMTP server and no errors were recorded. You should have gotten the email unless it is blocked by a spam blocker.

I checked our campus firewall an it does not appear as blocked. I tested with my private email and nothing there either. Still no emails.

I appreciate your responses very much.

Try writing more information to the page like:


$mailObj = mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader );
var_dump($mailObj);
echo(" : ");
echo($mailTo);
echo(" : ");
echo("$mailHeader");
die();

Do you see anything wrong? I don't.

One more thing you might try... change the line of code in that same file:

$lineEnd = "\n";

change it to:

$lineEnd = "\r\n";

that could be the issue, but really it appears it should be working.
