Question I have... How can I add live webcam feed to my Yahoo (iPage) webpage? Thanks for any response. Another question I got... Hi,.

I have my catalog up an running at.

Satellite Discs.

I have a hosted server, for which I can't edit the php.ini, and which uses SMTP) so I've also added the SMTP contribution..

My problem is that, while I can send emails from Admin, I can't from the catalog..

I noticed that, when I uncomment the body line like so....

// The body of the email.

//   $send_params['body'] = "$this->output";. the edited \store\includes\classes\email.php, I DO GET THE EMAIL, but it (of course) has no body!!!!!.

So what would stop the catalog sending any emails without a body?..

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 find an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

OK, looks like there's not much interest in this..

I do have one question though, since I can't view my SMTP server's error log,.

How can I view the email formatting that oscommerce creates?.

Can I get the mail functions to send the email to a text file, so that I can examine it? If so, can someone give me some pointers as to how to do that?.

...the solution in my case was to forget about the SMTP "contribution" and use the mail::factory php function. It really was a piece of cake, and now I can leave my password_forgotten.php the way it was and everything is fine and dandy..

One thing though - you can't use the "Send extra order emails to" fucntion in Admin, it will cause problems when the user makes the order. It's easier to edit the SMTP to....

$headers["To"] = array("$to_addr","");..

Comment #3

Actually, I did have a problem with the above, and I ended up doing something like this....

    if (EMAIL_TRANSPORT == 'smtp') {.


   $headers["From"]    = $from;.

   $headers["To"]      = $to_addr;.

   $headers["Subject"] = $subject;.

   $headers["Bcc"] = "";.

...line was necessary, but I put it in anyway...

Hi Guys,.

I was just wondering about using this email method....

I am running the SMTP contribution which is fine and I have actually added our email.

Address as a cc in the SMTP contribution so we can get the extra order emails etc....

My problem is that I also have a couple of other contribs that are batch orientated and I there for cannot send out emails in batches as I get an error about redeclaring the SMTP class which frustrates me..

This is similar to the problem I trying to send a newsletter via admin when you are running the SMTP contrib..

So I am wondering if using this method you have spoken of will work if multiple emails.

Are sent out at the same time..

Any Thoughts?.

Where I can find the mail.php file from above marked red?..

Comment #7

I done it but nothing happens.

Even the contact_us.php don't get sent now!.

I got to do this because the damn email crap is killing me..

Any advice anyone please? goes through but nothing for customers goes through... no order emails/updates/newsletter/confirmation etc.


Comment #8

General advice only I'm afraid. If you're on a Windows server then set the mail settings in osC admin panel to SMTP, but if you're on an Apache web server (Unix/Linux) then set it to Sendmail..

Set 'Use MIME HTML' to false, and set 'Verify e-mail addresses through dns' to false also..


Comment #9


After applying the "SMTP through authenticated SMTP server" contribution above, my "Contact Us" fuction stopped working..

All inquiries coming to us through this "Contact Us" page would have the "From" email field replaced with our email address, instead of the customer email address..

Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated..



Comment #10

I have been using this mail:factory solution for a while without any problem..

But now my iPage hosting has re-installed the server and PHP ... and it's not working any more..

I am getting this error and they don't find the solution ... I appreciate any comment.

Warning: send(Mail.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /.../public_html/admin/includes/classes/email.php on line 457.

Warning: send(): Failed opening 'Mail.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /.../public_html/admin/includes/classes/email.php on line 457.

Fatal error: Undefined class name 'mail' in /.../public_html/admin/includes/classes/email.php on line 468.

Thanks in advance.

Comment #12

Has anyone figured this mail::factory mod out?!? I have tried every smtp comunity mod listed.(only 3) I cant get any of them to work. I really need this to work by tomorrow. I have to get a customers store working. So please, if anyone has made this work please repackage the needed files with the correct edits done and upload them somewere. Thank You very very much Community!..

The mail.php file is from the PEAR package which can be found at.


The documentation says it's already there for PHP v4.3 or higher which is what I'm running but I couldn't find the go-pear.bat file they refered to in the windows installation. If your running Linux, there are instructions in the manual..

I went through the entire installation though I'm not sure that I needed to because it still didn't work after the install. I copied the file mail.php from the top level pear directory into the include path as stated in the php.ini file. I'm running apache on a W2K machine so I put it in the apache\includes directory. I tested on a new account and also "tell a friend" and the emails went through fine..

If you want to try and just download the mail package and copy the top leve mail.php file, here is the link to that package..


Hope this helps..


Comment #14

OK I cant get this mod to work. I run a iPage website on a linux host server, my customer orders and update emails are not being sent..

What I dont understand is I download the contribution and install it as required but still no joy..

Where is the php.ini file? I dont have one..

Do I need to download some other 3rd party software ie pear and install that first?.

Also unclear on how to setup the details, my email account is held on the server with as the email address..

The only emial files I have in my oscommerce are the 2 files in the classes folders...

Comment #15

You only need to set up your store in admin and set it to use sendmail...

Comment #16

Anyone realize this contribution do not work with shipping_estimator.php?.

It's weird I got shipping_estimator.php working fine. After install SMTP contribution, all user before log on can use shipping_estimator, once somebody sign up on the store then all shipping_estimator.php function is gone, and only show prices before tax in the box.........

Comment #17

Is sthere a way to make this work on any server? Regardless of the one you are presently on?.

I notice that it presently doesn't work when I'm on my local development machine...
