    Default failed to send email

    all of a sudden, formmail started giving me the dreaded "Failed to send email" error message.

    DEF ALERT is set
    FROM_USER is set
    SENDMAIL_F_OPTION = true
    SET_SENDER_FROM_EMAIL = true
    INI_SET_FROM = false

    I ran testalert and it failed to send, and nothing showed in server error log

    Everything was working fine until a couple of days ago. We have a managed server that has only our websites on it and formmail works just fine on the other sites with the exact same configuration.

    please, please, please help me...

    I shut off the firewall on the server and it worked. Turned it back on and it failed again...Why is it working on the other website on the same server but not on this one???

    Default Re: failed to send email

    if ur formmail was sending mail and now it isnt, then something was changed on the server

    formail isnt magic - it uses php to send the mail and php, in turn, uses ur opreating system apps

    youve identified that u have a firewall problem - so thats wot u have to fix

    question is: why was the firewall changed - it was working b4, now it isn't? who changed it and why?

    I was mistaken - the firewall was NOT on. It worked once and then failed. I am beginning to sense a problem with php. Need to run a couple more tests and dig deeper I guess.
