    I am having issues with phpmail and smtp mail. I have whmcs and ip.board installed on my server and they wont send mail using phpmail or smtp. I also use wordpress which seems to work ok.

    One WHMCS when using phpmail i get this error
    Email Sending Failed - Could not instantiate mail function.

    When using smtp i get this error
    Email Sending Failed - SMTP Error: The following recipients failed: XXXX@XXXX.com

    I edited the email the X's aren't part of the error :)

    I have tried contacted support many.... MANY times but is worthless. I would like to know if anyone.. ANYONE else has had this issue before i just go back over to cpanel. Im sure this is a simple issue with perhaps installation or something, i just cant get support to even try anything other than say o well.

    Please anyone that can help with this.

    Not sure which ini i should be looking at but the one located at C:\windows does read

    [mail function]
    ; For Win32 only.
    SMTP = localhost
    smtp_port = 25

    We are also getting such errors

    Linux server
    Plesk 10.44 version

    have this in /etc/php.ini

    [mail function]
    ; For Win32 only.
    SMTP = localhost
    smtp_port = 25

    How can I fix this from happening.

    Message was not sent
    Mailer Error: Could not instantiate mail function.

    This is intermediate error , any idea what is going on
