I have a client complaining that the php mail form I made is not working. He is not able to retrieve any mail from his web page. As a check, I substituted his email address with two of my own. They each worked as they should though he claims they still aren't reaching him. As I see it, the mail is definitely being sent from the web form page. If they are not getting to him, the only thing I can think of is Outlook is filtering them. Is mail sent from using php "mail" different enough from other mail to cause it to look like spam? Or something nefarious? thanks, for helping Chop
I am using the php mail function on my site for user registration, so that the user receives an email confirmation link to click on when he registers. However during testing not every email address receives the confirmation email and sometimes after sending it, I can't send email to that email address anymore, no email gets through. what could be causing it. I am using the php mail function exactly like it says in this book.
I would be grateful if anyone can suggest a useful guide to setting up mail with XAMPP/Mercury or any alternative mail program that I can try. I am running Windows 7 and just want to be able to send emails using PHP. I can get every script in Larry's book to work except for those involving email - 11.1, 13.1 and 18.6. I have downloaded all of the scripts from the website so I know the problem can't be with the scripts. I tried to follow a U tube video on setting up Mercury mail using demo@localhost but that didn't work either. I thought sending email in PHP was supposed to be easy, but it the most frustrating task of all. The scripts appear to work when I run them - I get the message "Thank you for contacting me..." but when I check my own email nothing ever arrives in my Inbox. Any suggestions what I can try next?
I've set up a contact form on a wordpress site. On my test site (which is not localhost), it works fine. But on the client's site its not sending the emails. I did a print_r of the $mail object which amongst other things shows [ErrorInfo] => Could not instantiate mail function Does anyone know what I need to do to get it working on his site? Thanks
