Thread: PHP Mail Function Hangs

    Question PHP Mail Function Hangs

    I hope I am posting in the right place.

    I am running OpenSUSE 12.1 and am trying to send email via the PHP mail() function. I configured php.ini to point to the location of sendmail (/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i), and verified via phpinfo that the parameter is set correctly. I configured outbound-only capability using Yast and am able to use sendmail successfully from the command line. I do not know what else to do.

    Cool Re: PHP Mail Function Hangs

    Well, I figured out what was wrong. I had to grant permission to Others to be able to utilize the maildrop folder.

    Here is what I had to do to allow the PHP mail function and also Nagios to be able to send email notifications.

    1. set the sendmail_path to /usr/bin/sendmail -t -i

    2. Restart apache2 services (service apache2 restart)

    3. Use yast to configure out-bound email only. I only had to enter the IP address of the mail server I am utilizing. I left all in-bound parameters blank.

    4. Change permission to "Create and delete files" for Others for the maildrop folder (/var/spool/postfix/maildrop)

    The log file for Postfix is located in the /var/log folder.

    I hope this is helpful to someone.
