The e-commerce.

tell a friend


Recommended Posts

I was testing the ?tell a friend? part of my site and the site never sends out an email. I have done it several times making sure that the email addresses are correct. I looked at the admin section and the site can send out emails. Does anyone know what I might be missing?

My first question would be do the other e-mail forms work correctly (i.e. contact us page, automated order e-mails, etc...) or this problem only related to the tell a friend page?


Things to check:


1. Make sure that you have your e-mail option set to sendmail if using a *nix host. If using Windows host set to SMTP.


2. Make sure the php.ini file has the correct path to sendmail (you may have to check with your host).


3. Make sure your host allows you to send e-mail from php scripts (yes, there are a few out there that don't allow it).


4. Check your spam folder (very common for osCommerce e-mails to end up there).
