Are you supplying a return e-mail registered to that domain? If not, some hosts block the mail, e.g. if your domain is www.example.com and your return address is me@jackspit.net, then the host may block it. They try to discourage spammers and jackers.

Thanks for reply,

I have used this code in my mailer.php file. But when i am printing value $mailsentto.

Then this is showing this output:

Error when sending Mail to myid@gmail.com

I do not know why this is going. Why mail is not going on mail id.

Please help me to solve this issue.

Have you tried commenting out your original code and replacing it with a hard-coded version?

$sendmail = mail('nobody@yoursite.com', 'hello', 'hello world this is a message', 'From: webmaster@example.com' . "\r\n" .
    'Reply-To: webmaster@mysite.com' . "\r\n" .
    'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion());

does this work?

thanks for reply,

yes i have tried like as you give me code. but after mail is not going.

I have put this mail function in many website. But i am not getting where the problem is coming.

But it seeming this problem can be from server or hosting side. If yes, Please suggest me . What Problem can be from server or our hosting site. So I can tell them that where is the problem.

Like I mentioned in the first post, it's possible that your host has a block on mail() without a registered email to the hosted domain. Eg. I have a few accounts on Streamline.net and this is their policy:

Streamlinenet filters all outgoing e-mail. These must have a 'From' or 'To' address that is a domain hosted with Streamlinenet. Any e-mail not fulfilling these criteria is stopped.

If you are sending e-mail to a customer who has given you their e-mail address, you need to use the domain name of their site (but it does not need to be a valid mailbox, for example noreply@their-domain.co.uk is a fairly common one to use). If you want the customer to reply to the e-mail you must use a valid account.

Streamlinenet's SMTP Filter System limits the outgoing mail from a domain to prevent bulk e-mailing. The limits are set to allow normal form based e-mail activity to pass unhindered, but stop any persistent attempt to send bulk mail.

Check with your host if they have a similar policy.

thanks for reply,

I will chat with my hosting site . I was also thinking that problem is not our side this problem is due to server or hosting site.

I will contact them soon. But it will take 3 to 4 days. After that i will contact on this post through my reply.

Ok sir thanks for giving so much help.
