Email Not Being Sent

I uploaded everything without making mods to the form. I did modify the WA_Globals.php file

<?php
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Width = "150" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Height = "40" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Characters = "5" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Font = "Fonts/MOM_T___.TTF" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_BG = "ffffff" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Noise = "000000" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Text = "000000" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_BG_transparent = "0" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Email_Server = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Contact_Email_Subject = "Online Contact Form Response" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Contact_Email_To = "tab@tabpetree.com" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Contact_Email_CC = "tab@0downtx.com" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Contact_Email_BCC = "" ;
?>

everything seems to work but I know its most likely the .._Email_server =""; line but I have tried everything 1)mail.tabpetree.com 2) localhost 3) even the http address of a perl script from my ISP . nothing works

Any help would be appreciated.

Everything looks good to me. You may need to ask the host to look into the smtp server error logs to see why the email is not being sent. They might also have a email server setting they want you to use. I assume you've checked your spam filters.

I use PHP mail, $WAGLOBAL_Email_Server = "", on a Linux server and everything works fine.

No Send

I am on a shared Hosting account with webhost4life.com

does this just use the send mail or do I need a php mail script also?

this is not my area, I simply do SEO.

It should work fine without any additional scripts.

Have a look here:

I just noticed this from your host:
"Our server setting REQUIRES all customers to use SMTP authorization in order to send out email."

And this from a WA post:

"You probably need to use Universal Email and change from mail to pear for sending the mail.

The default mail does not support authenticated smtp services."

Send Good / Workie GOOD

I added the script to another site on another Hosting acct.

and it worked the 1st time..

Rather than beat my brains in trying to get it to work I will just move my site and change the DNS.
