Sending Email (Chapter 11)

Recommended Posts

Created a contact form based on all the forms instruction you've provided.  On page 650 you talk about setting SMTP.  My web host had a setting of "localhost" and "port 25" so there was an error.  They opened a ticket so they could put the proper mail server address in their php.ini (I wonder why it wasn't set properly in the first place).  You talk about restarting the server after making the setting change.  It seems that a client/user couldn't fix php.ini himself anyway, and a host doesn't reboot his server just any old time he wants to make a change.  But apparently the program based upon your example would have worked if the setting was correct.  Is there anything else I have to make sure is set properly with the web host before I continue?
