Send a message via Yahoo to Snowby
Default Want to send mail with localhost.

Hi Friends,

I want to send mail with localhost. I am using Window XP with WAMP.

I had already made necessary settings in php.ini file

SMTP = smtp.mailhost.tld
smtp_port = 25
sendmail_from = snowbydave1@yahoo.com

But still it will give following error :

Warning: mail() [function.mail]: Failed to connect to mailserver at "smtp.mailhost.tld" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in E:\wamp\www\rnd\mail.php on line 2

Please guide me.

Thanking you,

Snowby Dave

Once you start a working on something, dont be afraid of failure and dont abandon it.
People who work sincerely are the happiest.
