Hi all, I've just added mail to my website hosted and the following is happening with mail:
- Email sent from private email (i.e. @gmail.com ) to @mydomain.com is received - Email sent from PHP mail() to private mail is received - Email sent from PHP mail() to @mydomain are NOT RECEIVED
I have the following default settings in php.ini:
; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i"). ; [php.net...] sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i
My script that I am testing with is very basic:
$to_address = "firstname.lastname@example.org"; $subject = "This goes in the subject line of the email!"; $message = "This is the body of the email.\n\n"; $headers = "From: email@example.com\r\n"; mail("$to_address","$subject","$message","$headers");
Is there a setting I need to change for this to work, or should be looking for?
I have checked junk mail and the mail is not being received there either.
If you are sending mail from your domain to your own domain on the same server you may need to adjust the host routing record (on my server it is in /etc/hosts) You will need to add the internal IP along with the host name of your server and/or an alias if you have created one. For example, "mail" below is an alias and let's say your internal IP adapter address is 192.168.1.50 ...
