mail() is not sending email out

Postby manishrathi » Fri Oct 19, 2012 3:26 pm

I have following html and php file. When I submit form from html file, I get message from php file without any error, but mail is not received in my mail inbox.
I am using wamp server on windows server 2003 enterprise edition, which is on vmware.

I have wamp server on windows 7 Home Premium. When I use these two files on this wamp , I just see that browser is trying to send request. Request does not get sent and I don't receive any error message.

I have tried using SMTP_PORT = 25 and SMTP_PORT = 587 , both. It does not work in either case.

phptest2.html
Code: Select all
    <html>
        <head>
        </head>

        <body>
            <h2>Alien Abduction Form</h2>
            <form action="phpTest2.php" method="POST">
                When It Happened :<input type="text" name="whenithappened" /><br />
                How  Long :<input type="text" name="howlong" /><br />
                <input type="submit" value="submit" /><br />
            </form>
        </body>
    </html>

phptest2.php
Code: Select all
    <html>
        <head>
        </head>

        <body>
            <?php
                $when_it_happened = $_POST['whenithappened'];
               
                $how_long = $_POST['howlong'];
                $to = 'manishrathi@yahoo.com';
                $From = 'indian.mahajan@bell.net';
                $Headers = "From: $From \r\n";
                $subject = 'PHP test';
                $msg = $when_it_happened.$how_long ;
                mail($to, "-f$From", $subject, $msg, $Headers);
                echo "your message is received";
            ?>
        </body>
    </html>

php.ini settings for mail()
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/smtp
SMTP = smtphm.sympatico.ca
;SMTP = localhost
; http://php.net/smtp-port
smtp_port = 25
; smtp_port = 587

; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/sendmail-from
sendmail_from = indian.mahajan@bell.net

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
; http://php.net/sendmail-path
;sendmail_path =

sendmail_path = "C:\wamp\sendmail\sendmail.exe -t -i"

How can I check whats wrong and where ?

I have another file, which invokes following php file. This php file is working fine except mail(). When I click on submit in HTML file, I just see that browser is trying to connect with SMTP server, but nothing is happening. How can I make sure, if SMTP server is running or not
Code: Select all
    <html>
    <head>
    </head>

    <body>
    <?php
    $fname = $_POST['firstname'];
    $lname = $_POST['lastname'];

    echo "Your first name is ".$fname."<br />";
    echo "Your last name is ".$lname."<br />";

    echo "Thanks for Reporting Abduction <br /><br />" ;

    $connect = mysqli_connect('localhost', 'root', '', 'phptest') or die ("Error connecting to database");

    $query1 = "insert into gwar (firstname, lastname) values ('$fname', '$lname')";

    $result = mysqli_query($connect, $query1) or die ("Error connecting to database");

    $query2 = "select * from gwar";

    $result2 = mysqli_query($connect, $query2);


    while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result2)){
    echo $row['firstname']." ".$row['lastname'].'<br />';
    }
    mysqli_close($connect);

    $to = "jigneshjsoni@gmail.com";
    $sub = "New Abduction Report Received";
    $msg = "New Abduction has been Reported by ".$fname." ".$lname;

    mail($to, $sub, $msg);

    ?>
    </body>
    </html>

Thanks
