Good question... I dunno what is the answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..
Don't think it is a server blacklist problem because I can send a normal e-mail to my site's address and it gets through. (It is currently set to forward all mail to my primary e-mail address) I'm not familiar at all with what an MTA is, or how to adjust it. Same with the sendmail settings. Anyone know a link I can go to that walks a PHP noob like me through this stuff? Thanks...
Are your email settings in admin set up correctly, or if you are asking how to set them up, post the settings you have and let us know if any or all types of emails fail...
If you are referring to osCommerce e-mail settings for my site, it is set as follows:.
E-Mail Transport Method: Sendmail (active).
E-Mail Linefeed: LF.
Use MIME HTML when sending E-Mail: False.
Verify E-mail Address through DNS Server: False.
Send Out E-mails: True..
Found this on my iPage hosting company's info page. Would this apply?.
Users are free to send emails from scripts running on the webserver. However, there are a few things to be aware of:.
If your chosen mail transport requires you to specify an SMTP server, always put: localhost.
One TO, FROM, CC or BCC email address must include the iPage domain you are running the script on (if it does not then the email will be discarded and not delivered)..
I've sent two test messages through my osCommerce iPage site and neither of them went through. Anyone know what is going on here? Thanks...
The problems can be:.
- your server is blacklisted.
- the MTA incorrectly setup on the server or for security reason the sendmail is disabled...
