mail in php giving me problems


Recommended Posts

In my php.ini fille I have SMTP = localhost, smtp_port = 25 and sendmail_from = me@localhost

Running my php script gives me the following error:

Warning: mail() [function.mail] Failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in C:\Program Files\Apache2.2\htdocs\mail-comments.php on line 29.

I have tried several different ini_set("sendmail_from", "xxx@yyy.com") lines in the php script but always get the same error. Is there something specific about the sendmail_from variable that I am overlooking?

Responding to the two previous replies --- A port checker shows on;y port 80 as being active (naturally since I am using http to run the port checker ) and I know sendmail.dll is not a mailserver but I thought since I only have Outlook Express as a mail program (it's never used though it is installed) it might be using sendmail.dll and tying up port 25.
