  1. If you have linux hosting with shell access you can check sendmail directly. First log into your account with ssh then:



    Step 3
    Send an email in the terminal using the sendmail command. Sendmail needs a valid, working email address and a short message. A subject for your email is optional. Type "sendmail your@email.com" and press the "Enter" key.

    Step 4
    Type a short one-line message and press the "Enter" key. Press "Ctrl-D." The command prompt should appear. Check your email inbox to see if the message was delivered. If the test email does not show up after a few minutes, Sendmail is either not working or not working properly.

    steps from: http://smallbusiness.chron.com/check-sendmail-working-not-linux-49904.html

    or try the mail command


  2. jazzman1 is saying change this:

    // create email headers
    $headers = 'From: '.$email_from."\r\n".
    'Reply-To: '.$email_from."\r\n" .
    'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();
    @mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers);

    to this:

    // create email headers
    $headers = 'From: '.$email_from."\r\n".
    'Reply-To: '.$email_from."\r\n" .
    'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();
    if(mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers)) echo "MAIL - OK"; else echo "MAIL FAILED";

    Note: only last line changes - the rest is there to show you where.

  3. sometimes you get more. Hopefully I can deliver.


    Here's my pitch. If you represent a charitable organization, a 501c(3) recognized by the IRS, I will consider taking on projects or just helping with small changes, project planning and management, quality control, etc. for free. Please read my profile first to see what I have done and my skills. I won't take projects that are on tight deadlines (I do have a day job, a wife, and three children) or for organizations that advocate for things I don't believe in.


    I will have time beginning in mid-July. Contact me via private message.


    Not interested in programming for commercial ventures even if you pay me.
