Hello,

I found a php function that utlizes smtp authentication to send emails. However, when I tried it, no errors are echoed to the browser, but when I check my inbox, there is no mail from that site. I don't think anybody else is getting them either because I asked my friends to make an account on the site and in the email, I asked them to contact me and forward the email to my personal email address so I would know it worked. Thus far, I have received none.

Here is my function:

/* * * * * * * * * * * * * * SEND EMAIL FUNCTIONS * * * * * * * * * * * * * */
//This will send an email using auth smtp and output a log array
//logArray - connection,

function authSendEmail($from, $namefrom, $to, $nameto, $subject, $message)
{
//SMTP + SERVER DETAILS

// MAX OF 250 EMAILS SENT PER HOUR THROUGH HOST'S EMAIL SERVICE

/* * * * CONFIGURATION START * * * */
$smtpServer = "mail.domain.com";
$port = "25";
$timeout = "30";
$username = "me@me.com";
$password = "password";
$localhost = "localhost";
$newLine = "\r\n";
/* * * * CONFIGURATION END * * * * */

//Connect to the host on the specified port
$smtpConnect = fsockopen($smtpServer, $port, $errno, $errstr, $timeout);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
if(empty($smtpConnect))
{
$output = "Failed to connect: $smtpResponse";
return $output;
}
else
{
$logArray['connection'] = "Connected: $smtpResponse";
}

//Request Auth Login
fputs($smtpConnect,"AUTH LOGIN" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['authrequest'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Send username
fputs($smtpConnect, base64_encode($username) . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['authusername'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Send password
fputs($smtpConnect, base64_encode($password) . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['authpassword'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Say Hello to SMTP
fputs($smtpConnect, "HELO $localhost" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['heloresponse'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Email From
fputs($smtpConnect, "MAIL FROM: $from" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['mailfromresponse'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Email To
fputs($smtpConnect, "RCPT TO: $to" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['mailtoresponse'] = "$smtpResponse";

//The Email
fputs($smtpConnect, "DATA" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['data1response'] = "$smtpResponse";

//Construct Headers
$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . $newLine;
$headers .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" . $newLine;
$headers .= "To: $nameto <$to>" . $newLine;
$headers .= "From: $namefrom <$from>" . $newLine;

fputs($smtpConnect, "To: $to\nFrom: $from\nSubject: $subject\n$headers\n\n$message\n.\n");
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['data2response'] = "$smtpResponse";

// Say Bye to SMTP
fputs($smtpConnect,"QUIT" . $newLine);
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515);
$logArray['quitresponse'] = "$smtpResponse";
}

Posting this was my last resort. I have been tangling with this for a week.

Thanks. Any and all help is appreciated.

have you checked that the hosting supports smtp? some dont, i would expect them to though. same goes for the port number.

also, if your at work, and they have an exchange server, you probably wont be allowed to use smtp and may not get a response from the mailserver

Thanks, but I already solved it. I just installed Pear and used that.
