I'm not getting mail delivered from this form.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Dumb question, but have you tried using a different email address?

Also, is XOOPS using SMTP, phpmail, sendmail. A few more details on your mail configuration and server environment would help.

I tried another email address. Thanks for the suggestion. No help.

I don't think this form has ever worked. I have postfix not sendmail. Linux Mandrake 9.2 box.

Can you help me get the phpmail thingy to run?

Thanks/

Hi HughG,
Tried that. No help. Do I need to do something with php.ini?
Thanks for the suggestion.

try this....

copy this to a text file and name it "test.php"

<?php
 phpinfo
(); 
 
?>


and load it on your server and call it up in your browser.

then search for the term MAIL and see if it provides a sendmail path... (i know you said you dont use it...) but it's worth a look

if all else fails.. you could use smtp...

Hi HughG,

here's what phpinfo.php sez:
sendmail_from me@localhost.com
me@localhost.com

sendmail_path /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i

cool. Ok change the method to sendmail, make sure the sendmail path is correct just below [Path to sendmail]

and try that.

if that doesnt work...try the path to postfix ...

HughG,
It still doesn't seem to be working. I looked in /usr/sbin.
Sendmail is listed there 21 bytes. Also some file named sendmail.postfix 92680 bytes. And also postfix is there 58232 bytes.
Should I try postfix?
