mail() silent error

Recommended Posts

I am running a suse linux 9.1 professional box with apache2/php4 and for some reason the mail() function is returning successful, but the messages never reach the destination. I have checked the reference from the php.ini file to the sendmail and it is correct. Is there something more I need to do?

hmmm... maby if you run your own mailserver you should try sending an email to a local domain like yourname@yourdomain.com also look at the sendmail log to see if there is an error there. There are lots of log analysers out there that you can use just search google for sendmail log

Actually I could run SMTPd, POP3d, POP2d and/or IMAP4d; but currently I am not. I was under the impression that the idea was you didn't need a SMTPd if you had sendmail. I will check the sendmail log, though. Thanks for the tip. If I get this resolved soon I can go back to working on my scripts and be a happy little coder.
