My php scripts don't send e-mail html forms.

    Is there a way to check to see if I can send e-mail out from my server. Or a way to set up an external mail server which I could use? I see there is an option to set and external mail server but I do not know how to set it up under co-domains.

    Any help setting up the mail server would be appreciated.

    btw, I'm using a dynamic IP. I know it's not recommended but a fixed IP is currently out of my budget.

    try this small PHP test file.
    Make sure your change the recipient@example.com to an email address that is not on your system!

    Code:
    <?php
    $to = "recipient@example.com";
    $subject = "Hi!";
    $body = "Hi,\n\nHow are you?";
    if (mail($to, $subject, $body)) {
      echo("<p>Message successfully sent!</p>");
     } else {
      echo("<p>Message delivery failed...</p>");
     }
    ?>
    
    When you have tested the above PHP script, post the last 10 to 20 lines from your mail.log file (The mail.log file is in: "/var/log")

    Looks like the mail servers of the big providers are rejecting all your mails. Do you host your server behind a dsl or cable uplink with a dynamic IP address?
