IIS smtp setting - PHP mail not leaving Queue Folder

Recommended Posts


I would like my default virtual SMTP server to send email using php, when I use the Mail() function in php I get no errors and the NTFS_12868f1001c6ab2700000004.EML(just an example as this changes) file is created and placed into the Queue folder inside my c:\inetpub\mailroot\Queue. It never sends from this folder the email just stays there.

At first I thought it was a php.ini file problem but my settings are 100% correct(as I understand it) let me give you some specs. Currently I think its a relay problem but im just not getting this right  :-\

SMTP = localhost
smtp_port = 25
sendmail_from = mhodge_txs@yahoo.com

Thanks for the suggestion but still no luck, turning off the firewall did not help, I already had the port (25) open.

This is making me frustrated.....  >:(

Anyone got any other ideas
