Email going somewhere Successfully?

Recommended Posts

We're testing on local osx panther ...

 

When we send an email using "contact us" we get a message saying the message was sent "successfully", however, we do not receive it in inbox?

 

Our settings are:

 

1) Admin/configuration/ my store:

 

E-Mail Address: MyTestingEmailAccount@verizon.net

E-Mail From: MyTestingEmailAccount@verizon.net

 

 

2) Admin/configuration/ E-Mail Options:

 

 

E-Mail Transport Method: sendmail

E-Mail Linefeeds: LF

Use MIME HTML When Sending Emails: true

Verify E-Mail Addresses Through DNS: true

Send E-Mails: true

 

 

3) php.ini:

 

[mail function]

; For Win32 only.

SMTP = localhost

smtp_port = 25

 

; For Win32 only.

;sendmail_from = me@example.com

 

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").

sendmail_path = sendmail -t -i

 

 

Thanks for any help.... Scot

Hmmm, I am experiencing the same problem.

I am running Red Hat Linux (Fedora) and it looks like my e-mail smtp server (Qmail) is not relaying my e-mails.

I checked php.ini and it looks ok as it references qmail's sendmail link. It used to work before but I had the server re-imaged after someone got into it, and now I do not remember how I had configure qmail for relaying.

Whatever the problem, it has to do with your smtp server rather than with PHP or Ecommerce. Make sure that your smtp server accept relaying from your local domain and local user. Also, make sure that your e-mail address (the one Ecommerce uses on the From: header) is a valid e-mail address, as some programs check for valid e-mail addresses (Qmail does).

Also, on php.ini, the unix path points to a sendmail link to your smtp server. Normally all e-mail programs put this link on /usr/bin or /usr/sbin (/usr/bin/sendmal, /usr/sbin/sendmail), and therefore you do not have to change php.ini. If it does, you then will have to deal with your smtp server setup.

 

I hope this helps, in the meanwhile, does anybody out there know how to setup Qmail?
