Mailform sends no eMail

Post by mvwd » Thu Jan 21, 2010 7:29 pm

:!: Problem:
Integrated Mailform or Custom-Mailform of a CMSimple-Plugin are working but DO NOT send an eMail.

:?: If you have this problem, check the following:
-> Check with your hosting-company, if you need to activate the mail-function of php.
-> Check, if there's an FAQ or Instruction available for activating the mail-function.
-> Take a look in your PHP-Configuration (phpinfo()), at the following parameters (most used settings):
  • SMTP (localhost)
  • smtp_port (25)
  • sendmail_path (usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i)
  • sendmail_from (empty)
If parameter 'sendmail_path' isn't filled, there's no mail-programm installed. In this case, contact your hosting-company.

:idea: There are solutions available for following hosting-companys: -> The tutorial for the hosting-companies will be listed in seperate posts in this thread.

If you did find a FAQ / Manual / Instruction for other hosting-companies, please feel free to contact me via PM, i will add it here.

Host Europe

Host Europe link
On Host Europe you need to activate the mail-function by setting a sender-email-adress in the configuration under section 'scripts'.

=> German Version (Original-Post of User rothom)

Here the step-by-step solution (texts on the pics in german):
  1. Login to your web-administration (KIS) with your account-data

  2. Choose "Webhosting"

  3. Go to "configure" (german: konfigurieren).
    [ external image ]
  4. Go on to "Scripts" (german: Skripte)
    [ external image ]
  5. Choose "Standard-E-Mail-Adress"
    [ external image ]
  6. "Select an eMail-Adress" out of the drop-down-menu. You may need to create an eMail, if there's none existing. Activation-time may last up to 15 minutes.
