mail()-Function in PHP not working correctly

    Solved: mail()-Function in PHP not working correctly


    I have a problem with the mail()-Function in php: It does send Emails to every recipient.
    For example, I can send an Email to my yahoo address per mail(), but my two gmx accounts do not receive emails I send with the mail()-Function.

    I also have got a second email address, which simply does not receive any Emails from the mail()-function.

    Already a few customers have reported the issue, that they did not receieve automated confirmations allthough they should have received them.

    I really don't know what I should be looking for, since it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.

    I am using SMTP authentication for Relaying.

    Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

    ********* Problem solved *********** (admin might delete this post, or just leave it for anyone else who might have this problem)

    After going through many lines of maillogs I found out, that the mail did not get accepted by some mail servers because they could not resolve my hostname.
    I have set my hostname to server.mydomain.net and the email was sent by anonymous@server.mydomain.net. Looking up server.mydomain.net did not work, since I forgot to add such a DNS record.
    Probably will work now, with the DNS record added.
