php mail() ... dont work with my new server


Recommended Posts



im using a contact form which sends me an email with the data name.. comments ..


Now im testing a new better server which use IMAP (old POP3) and my form is not working like it used to be..


                $emailTo = " $dbSentEmail"; //Put your own email address here
	$emailServer = "noreply@totalsports.com.cy"; //Put your own email address here
	$body = "Name: $name \n\nEmail: $email \n\nSubject: $subject \n\nComments:\n $comments";
	$headers  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
	$headers .= 'Content-type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8' . "\r\n";
	$headers .= 'From: Contact Form <'.$emailServer.'>' . "\r\n" . 'Reply-To: ' . $email;

	mail($emailTo, $subject, $body, $headers);


Any idea what i have to do to work like before?

IMAP is just for retrieving the email, just like POP3. If its a send issue, you can blame the MTA (otherwise known as SMTP).

In that case, you have to raise a support ticket


Add on top of your script to see error, which are trigger by mail()

ini_set('display_errors', 1);

Let me explain..


Im running the same script on 2 differents hosting servers, on my new server for some reasons im using imap.domain.com on my old just the domain.com for incoming and outgoing..


The same script is running live on both servers  (old/new) ... my old server is working perfect on the new one is not sending the email like its supposed to be.


Thats why im looking if there is any differences using pop3/imap and mail() function




Thanks ill try that



Thank you guys
