My 1st question is: iPage.com says you need 2 primary dns to redelegate? Many thanks for any answer. Another question I got... Everything was working great, now all of a sudden I'm not receiving email notifications when an order is placed for either the order or credit card info. I haven't changed ANYTHING on the site, it just stopped sending emails sometime last week. Any ideas? I double checked that the email entry was correct, everything looks good on that end, just no emails even on "test" orders...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could help you..

In the contributions area there is one which is for testing your email from your site. It was written by Harald, I don tknow the contribution #, so here is part of it..

Start with the license.

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE.

Version 2, June 1991.

Copyright © 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 675 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA. Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed..

Preamble.

The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free softwareto make sure the software is free for all it's users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too..

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things..

To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it..

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights..

We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software..

Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want it's recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations..

Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all..

The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow..

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION.

0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you"..

Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside it's scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if it's contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does..

1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program..

You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee..

2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:.

A) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change..

You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License..

C) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.).

These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and it's terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it..

Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program..

In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License..

3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:.

A) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,.

Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,.

C) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.).

The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable..

If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code..

4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance..

5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or it's derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all it's terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it..

6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License..

7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program..

If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances..

It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice..

This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License..

8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License..

9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns..

Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation..

10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally..

NO WARRANTY.

11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION..

12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES..

E-Mail Testing Script v1.0 For osCommerce 2.2.

Released under the GNU General Public License.

Copyright © 2003 osCommerce.

Authors:.

Harald Ponce de Leon.

Http://www.oscommerce.com/about/team.

##########.

Copy the email_test.php to the catalog directory on your server, and call it through your web browser..

By submiting the form, two identical emails are sent: one using the native PHP mail() function, and a second email using the email class osCommerce uses to send out email..

Two osCommerce parameters are being overridden:.

SEND_EMAILS is forcefully set to "true", so an email from the email class can be sent (otherwise no email would be sent if SEND_EMAILS is set to "false" in the catalog configuration).

EMAIL_USE_HTML is set accordingly to the checkbox selection made on the form..

The first email sent is done via the native PHP mail() function - any errors/warnings shown due to this call must be ffixed so that osCommerce can properly send out emails..

More investigation is needed if any errors/warnings are shown on the email class usage that osCommerce uses..

###########.

Please note, the native PHP mail() function cannot send out HTML emails - if HTML is enabled on the form, the email sent via PHP will be sent as plaintext, whereas the email sent via the email class osCommerce uses will be sent in HTML format..

The code.

<?php.

 if (isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['action']) && ($HTTP_POST_VARS['action'] == 'send')) {.

   define('SEND_EMAILS', 'true');.

   if (isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['usehtml']) && ($HTTP_POST_VARS['usehtml'] == '1')) {.

     define('EMAIL_USE_HTML', 'true');.

   } else {.

     define('EMAIL_USE_HTML', 'false');.

   }.

 }.

 require('includes/application_top.php');.

 if (isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['action']) && ($HTTP_POST_VARS['action'] == 'send')) {.

   mail($HTTP_POST_VARS['to_address'], '[PHP] '$HTTP_POST_VARS['subject'], 'This email has been sent from the native php mail() function.'"\n\n"$HTTP_POST_VARS['body']);.

   tep_mail($HTTP_POST_VARS['to'], $HTTP_POST_VARS['to_address'], '[osCommerce] '$HTTP_POST_VARS['subject'], 'This email has been sent from the email class osCommerce uses.'"\n\n"$HTTP_POST_VARS['body'], $HTTP_POST_VARS['from'], $HTTP_POST_VARS['from_address']);.

   echo 'E-Mails Sent!<br><br>';.

 }.

?>.

<form name="emailtest" action="email_test.php" method="post">.

E-Mail From: <?php echo tep_draw_input_field('from'); ?><br>.

E-Mail From Address: <?php echo tep_draw_input_field('from_address'); ?><br><br>.

E-Mail To: <?php echo tep_draw_input_field('to'); ?><br>.

E-Mail To Address: <?php echo tep_draw_input_field('to_address'); ?><br><br>.

Subject: <?php echo tep_draw_input_field('subject'); ?><br><br>.

Body:<br>.

<?php echo tep_draw_textarea_field('body', 'virtual', 50, 7); ?>.

<br><br>.

<?php echo tep_draw_checkbox_field('usehtml', '1'); ?> Send as HTML (overrides the Administration Tool setting)<br><br>.

<input type="hidden" name="action" value="send"><input type="submit"><br><br><input type="reset">.

</form>..

Comment #2

Hi,.

Thanks John, looks like a handy one, found it at:.

Http://www.oscommerc...tributions,1595.

Edit:.

The only downside of using something like that contrib. though, is that, for testing purposes, isolation is the key. That is, can't the emails be sent because of osCommerce, or the web hosts/email server,etc ??.

The contribution usues osCommerce, so it's not going to determine if the problem is _within_ osC, or _external_ to osC..

Just my one cents worth..

Peter.

Comment #3

It sends two emails, one via osc, one outside of osc...

Comment #4

Hi,.

No, one sends via the tep_mail() function (OsCommerce), and the other still uses osC functions, so they.

Both.

Use osCommerce, so, ......... no isolation in testing..

Peter..

Comment #5

Just for fun, I changed the send protocol from SMPT to sendmail and guess what, emails are coming through now, could it be because our iPage site server is running Linux not Windows? That doesn't explain why it was working before, I don't really care as long as it works!..

Comment #6

OOPS, I meant from SMTP to sendmail in the Send Emails option, typo..

Comment #7

Thanks, I should have said that I had already figured out our iPage site was running on Linux by looking at the server info in admin. That's why I changed it to sendmail because of the message Servers running on Windows and MacOS should change this setting to SMTP. Hence I figured the opposite would be true for Linux..

Comment #8

Everything was working great, now all of a sudden I'm not receiving email notifications when an order is placed for either the order or credit card info. I haven't changed ANYTHING on the site, it just stopped sending emails sometime last week. Any ideas? I double checked that the email entry was correct, everything looks good on that end, just no emails even on "test" orders...

Comment #9

Hi,.

Check that it is not a problem with the web iPage hosting company, that is, their email server, server settings. Try this to see if you can send an email..

<?php.

$to = "";.

$subject = "E-Mail Subject";.

$message .= "E-Mail Message\n";.

$message .= "More of the E-Mail Message\n";.

Mail( $to, $subject, $message, "From: $from\nCc: $cc\nBcc: $bcc\n" ).

?>.

Save it as test_email.php or whatever name you want, upload it to your iPage website and run it..

Peter.
