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

Comment #1

I Try sending mail through the "contact us" link but nothing go out what going on with this mail set up??..

Comment #2

With me the email works in Contact. I'm just not getting feedback when I sign up for a new account..

Double-check the email address that you entered in the Admin panel...

Comment #3

There are a few problems with the e-mail smtp on a windows box I have found and there are many posts about it als some bug reports..

This cannot contain spaces I think this is the line for e-mail.php in catalog includes classes e-mainl.php.

If (EMAIL_TRANSPORT == 'smtp') {.

Return mail($to_addr, $subject, $this->output, 'From: '$from$this->lf'To: '$to$this->lfimplode($this->lf, $this->headers)$this->lfimplode($this->lf, $xtra_headers));.

} else {.

Return mail($to, $subject, $this->output, 'From: '.$from.$this->lf.implode($this->lf, $this->headers).$this->lf.implode($this->lf, $xtra_headers));.



I also think it's the same in admin includes classes e_mail.php.

So replace this code in admin and catalog with the above..

Its on line 499 or so.

Also at the bottom of catalog>includes>functions>general.php.

These lines need to look like this.

// nl2br() prior PHP 4.2.0 did not convert linefeeds on all OSs (it only converted \n).

Function tep_convert_linefeeds($from, $to, $string) {.

#if ((PHP_VERSION < "4.0.5") && is_array($from)) {.

Return ereg_replace('('implode('|', $from)')', $to, $string);.

} #else {.

#return str_replace($from, $to, $string);.



Hope that solves the e-mail issues for you..

Hey guys I might have a solution to your problem. If you look in the admin section under configuration there email options. In you have the choice to put sendmail or SMTP. Since I have my own server I use SMTP. Depending on what and who is iPage hosting your iPage site you might need to email and ask them to give you there SMTP...

Comment #5

I already have the correct setting in Admin - sendmail..

When I send myself a test message from the Contact form, it works. But I didn't get an acknowledgement that I created a new account...

Comment #6

I have a Linux server and I set the email options Transport: Sendmail.

Linefeed: LF and still not working at all...

Comment #7

I talke to my web server Host and they say that I need to use for both pop and smtp..

Where can I change this at?..

Comment #8

Did you check the admin panel where you set the smtp? I don't use that option so I don't know if lets you type in that information there or not...

Comment #9

Yes I check the admin panel I have 2 option smtp and sendmail only no type in area...

Comment #10

I need help set up my mail on osCommerce 2.2 Milestone 2. My host Support say that I need to set The sendmail path as /use/sbin/sendmail. How can I do this?..

Comment #11

That's an excellent question. This should be in the admin panel somewhere but I didn't see it either..

I usually set it in the script but am not sure where. I don't know if it's required with PHP but probably is..

And, yet, my Contact form is working without my putting in the sendmail information. Strange..

Maybe someone knows the answer? If I find out, I'll let you know...

Comment #12

I just did a search and found this. This might help:.


Comment #13

Comment #16

Try this contribution. Just might do the trick..

SMTP Authentication..

Comment #17

In your admin panel, go to Configuration, and under My Store, go to 'Send extra order e-mails to', and input your e-mail address there. Whenever a customer makes an order you'll receive an exact copy of the e-mail that they receive from you..

Under e-mail options, make sure that the 'Send e-mails' option is set to true..

I have never known osCommerce to send an e-mail just because a customer registers with your site, only when they actually make an order from your site..

If I'm wrong on this last point then perhaps someone who knows better will enlighten us all..

Hope this helps - Vger..

Comment #18

Ok thank you for that now how about the EXTRA ORDER EMAILS. Do I still receive my order e-mail and othere e-mail..

Comment #19

When 'Send extra order e-mails' is enabled you will receive a copy of the same e-mail the customer receives when they make an order - so you will know straightaway that they have made an order, and what it is that they have ordered..


Comment #20

With the contribution you must leave the Extra Order Email section blank..

You will receive all normal emails and be able to send emails. Just check your admin page for orders...

Comment #24

The sendmail path as /use/sbin/sendmail.


And if this help here my server info.

Database Host: localhost (

Server OS: Linux 2.4.20-28.7 Database: MySQL 3.23.56.

Comment #25

If your host said to use sendmail, do NOT use this contribution. It is for SMTP only..

Check your catalog/admin/includes/classes/email.php see if it matches catalog/includes/classes/email.php. If not copy catalog/includes/classes/email.php and replace catalog/admin/includes/classes/email.php..

I'm having a similar issue. ALL my emails are going out (order notices, order status notices, new account creations, contact us), BUT when I try to email my customers nothing happens??? (I'm on my own Linux box)..

I tried to send a newsletter too, but I'm not real sure how to use the Newsletter Manager. It has a big red X under sent and all I can seem to do is Preview or Lock the Newsletter. How do you send or delete a Newsletter?..

Comment #29

To send a Newsletter select send email in admin, select 'To All Newsletter Subscribes" in the 'to' box..

To delete a newsletter select Newsletter Manager in admin and delete or create a newsletter there...
