Got a question, hope someone can answer... Has anyone built an e-shop with iPage or Ejunkie? Looking forward for any answer. 2nd question I got is.. This is driving me nuts. My store won't send any emails in the catalog or admin. When I try to send an email from admin I get a message that says "Notice: Email sent to:" ...

I have my store on a host computer..

Server Info:.

OS: FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE.

HTTP Server: Apache.

PHP Version: 4.3.4 (Zend: 1.3.0).

Database: MySQL 3.23.54.

Php.ini:.

Sendmail_path /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i.

The version of OSC email.php is:.

$Id: email.php,v 1.1.1.1 2003/09/18 19:03:49 wilt Exp $.

The email configuration options in admin are:.

E-Mail Transport Method:.

Sendmail.

E-Mail Linefeeds:.

LF.

Use MIME HTML When Sending Emails:.

False.

Verify E-Mail Addresses Through DNS:.

False.

Send E-Mails:.

True.

Here is a dump of the email object right before the php mail function:.

Email Object.

(.

   [html] => This is a test, Only a test.

   [text] =>.

   [output] => This is a test, Only a test.

   [html_text] =>.

   [html_images] => Array.

       (.

       ).

   [image_types] => Array.

       (.

           [gif] => image/gif.

           [jpg] => image/jpeg.

           [jpeg] => image/jpeg.

           [jpe] => image/jpeg.

           [bmp] => image/bmp.

           [png] => image/png.

           [tif] => image/tiff.

           [tiff] => image/tiff.

           [swf] => application/x-shockwave-flash.

       ).

   [build_params] => Array.

       (.

           [html_encoding] => quoted-printable.

           [text_encoding] => 7bit.

           [html_charset] => iso-8859-1.

           [text_charset] => iso-8859-1.

           [text_wrap] => 998.

       ).

   [attachments] =>.

   [headers] => Array.

       (.

           [0] => MIME-Version: 1.0.

           [1] => X-Mailer: osCommerce.

           [2] => Content-Type: text/html; charset="iso-8859-1".

           [3] => Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable.

       ).

   [lf] =>.

).

And here is what the mail function looks like: (Note: I added the "\n" to show where the breaks are in the header.).

Mail("Douglas Hobaugh" <\nMIME-Version: 1.0\nX-Mailer: osCommerce\nContent-Type: text/html; charset="iso-8859-1"\nContent-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable);.

I can't find anything wrong. Anyone have a clue?.

Thanks,.

Doug..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

Comment #1

I did't make any changes to the mail settings..

Comment #2

What is the domain? what happens when an email is sent from 'contact us'..

Comment #3

The iPage domain is shortestories.com.

The message says "Your enquiry has been successfully sent to the Store Owner." but I never get it...

Comment #4

What are the mail settings in the admin section..

Comment #5

The email configuration options in admin are:.

E-Mail Transport Method: sendmail.

E-Mail Linefeeds: LF.

Use MIME HTML When Sending Emails: false.

Verify E-Mail Addresses Through DNS: false.

Send E-Mails: true..

Comment #6

I went thru my settings and even the code, does your server require any kind of special authentication? what do the server access and error logs say?..

Comment #7

No.

I don't see any errors..

This is a log from a contact us request..

151.199.50.236 - - [16/Jan/2004:05:56:38 +0000] "POST /contact_us.php?action=send&osCsid=47253f17f2bc4f5454b5fc939a650dde HTTP/1.1" 302 5 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)".

151.199.50.236 - - [16/Jan/2004:05:56:39 +0000] "GET /contact_us.php?action=success&osCsid=47253f17f2bc4f5454b5fc939a650dde HTTP/1.1" 200 22281 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)".

Do you think I need to talk with my iPage hosting provider?.

I even tried a simple mail("xxx@xxx.xom","subject","body"); as the first command after the inclusion of application_top in admin/mail.php and that did not work...

Comment #8

I think they have something set wrong, as that is my ip address...

Comment #9

I have the same problem.. some help would be nice..

Comment #10

This may seem like a dumb question, but in the OSC admin panel did you setup the default store email address?.

I don't think Osc knows where to send the mail "from" without it..

Just a thought.....

Comment #11

What kind of messages you get in /var/log/maillog ?

Comment #12

The problem was my host required the use of the PHP mail functions 5th argument..

You would think, that would be somthing that they would have had in there FAQ or some other help section, but they don't..

My problem is solved..

Doug..

Comment #13

I'm having the same issue - what did you use for the 5th argument, and where did you put it?.

Thanks - -..

Comment #14

Once again a person fixes the problem and keeps the solution secret. Thanks for nothing!..

Comment #15

For what it's worth I had the same problem with email for 3 days and found it was Zonealarm firewall that stopped the emails from sending. The emails appeared to send ok but nothing actually arrived at the destination. Maybe any firewall would do this ?

Comment #16

The PHP mail function 5th argument takes sendmail switches..

I had to use the -f switch for my iPage domain "-fshortestories.com".

The mail function is in the email classl file /catalog/includes/classes/email.php.

Doug..

Comment #17

Hey Douglas,.

That iPage site looks fantastic. How did you customize the look like that. Do you have any tips? Is there a tutorial?.

Thanks..

Comment #19

If you are using freebsd you should not have had to make any changes in the mail settings in the admin area except who mail is from. I have the same thing, works great..
