Hi,
	could anyone please help me out with the mail() function? I keep getting
server errors, and I don't know why... My syntax is correct according to the
book, and everything else is working fine. Should I set up my mail server
(IIS5) in any specific manner?
Please help,
-K

More details please?

I assume, from what you say, you are running a personal web server on a 
Microsoft Windows machine.

The mail (which is controlled by the 'sendmail' program on my server) 
function can be VERY tricky on Linux (which is what I use) and so i assume 
it is on Windows as well... 9/10 times, in my short, short experience, the 
problem with the mail() function is with the sendmail program (after you 
have nailed down any parse errors).



But... that's just my amateur knowledge......

best luck,
dan

Hey Dan,

	I'm running Win2k and IIS 5.0. How about if I modify my question... How do
I go about setting up and configuring a mail server on my machine with the
said configuration... ? Should I stick with the default server that comes
with IIS? Use MSMail which ships with Win2k? or go for something else?
Any hep is appreciated.
Thanks
-K
