I'd suggest a more simplified test:


ini_set('display_errors', '1');

mail("myemail@example.com", "test email", "test was a success", "from:myemail@example.com");


Replace myemail@example.com with your real email. If you get an email, the it is working properly.

If you get some errors or don't get an email, then you know something is wrong.
