php mail function alternative?

Recommended Posts

hi, ima fairly new to php and ive just learnt how to use the mail function in one of my scripts. unfortunately any hotmail users receiving mail from it get the message in their junk folder. is there any way i can sort it out - like using an alternative mailing script, im on a shared server so i dont have access to php.ini

I have no experience in use with other mailsystems, i'm sure anyone can point you in some direction there.

But You might want to check if you have the option with your host to sendt through smtp, this would give you better score in the X-Spam-Status.
Hotmail is one of the most difficult mailboxes to make friends with, however the first thing is to set your email header information as properly and complete as possible.
I also think hotmail verifyes incoming email with sender ID, you can read more about it [a href=\"http://www.microsoft.com/mscorp/safety/technologies/senderid/overview.mspx\" target=\"_blank\"]HERE[/a] and its - as i understand - connected with sender policy framework ( [a href=\"http://www.openspf.org/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.openspf.org/[/a] )
