Thanks for looking. I need to overcome this final obstacle so’s I can get my site online, appreciate your help.

Ok, my PHP mail just wont work. Here’s the code:

<?php $headers = “MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n”; $headers .= “Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n”;

$senderName = $_POST[‘iname’]; $senderEmail = $_POST[‘iemail’]; $senderSubject = $_POST[‘isubject’]; $senderMsg = nl2br($_POST[‘imensage’]); $to = “example@robbydesigns.com”; $date = date(“d-m-Y / H:i:s”);

$EmailBody = “Name: $senderName<br ?> Email: $senderEmail
$senderMsg”; $EmailFooter = “
Date / Time: $date

”; $Message = $EmailBody.$EmailFooter; $ok = mail($to, $senderSubject, $Message, $headers . “From:$senderName <”.$to.”>”); if($ok){ echo “retval=1”; }else{ echo “retval=0”; }


I was told it may be a port problem so I asked JustHost.com and they said:

“1.port 25 isn’t blocked on our server. Your developer also can try to use port 2626, this is alternate SMTP port. Regarding this problem I can advise to enable option “SMTP authentication” in your script as server required SMTP authentication.

2. sendmail isn’t disabled. You can find sendmail path in your cPANEL.

3. Our server uses ports 25 and 2626 for mail sending.”

..Any ideas please?
