    I got a funny problem sending mail via php.

    I use the standard mail() function from php which shows no error after the call. But none of the emails I want to send this way ever get to the receiver. But not only this they also don´t show up in ANY logfile (and I checked them all!!!).

    If I try to send mail via console everything is fine though.

    I already tried to change the php.ini path to sendmail which didn´t help.

    mx record shouldn´t be an issue because I don´t want to recieve emails.

    I also tried mchk without any result....

    my phpinfo says SMTP=localhost (Port 25)

    Maybe someone of the smart guys out there has a clue for me.

    thanx in advance

    I can suggest you to check following things:

    1) network is permanently whitelisted on your server (Server -> Mail -> White List)

    2) Make sure that /usr/sbin/sendmail is a symbolic link to /var/qmail/bin/sendmail binary.

    3) If doesn't helped - check out if whole mailsystem works. E.g. try to send mails via webmail. Trace down delivering stages through the /usr/local/psa/var/log/maillog.

    4) If doesn't works anyway -> try to use /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mchk
    utility (--help for little info). It could rewrite all mail related configs and if problem is in misconfiguration - it should help. Do not
    forget to restart qmail after running mchk:
    # /etc/init.d/qmail restart

    Hope it will help
