The e-commerce.

Sendmail Email Configuration


Recommended Posts

Interestingly, mail is processed through my Contact form but I don?t receive any email confirmations when I set up a new account. Any ideas why?


Here are my specs:


? oscommerce-2.2ms2

? ipowerweb (Unix server)

? Sendmail (this is correctly set in the admin configuration)


The Contact form that is working calls this action:

catalog/contact_us.php?action=send" method="post"


The New Account form that doesn?t send out emails calls the following action:

catalog/create_account.php" method="post" onSubmit="return check_form(create_account);"


I?m not sure how catalog/includes/classes/email.php or catalog/includes/classes/http_client ties in with this.


Any ideas or suggestions? It seems that we need better documentation on this tricky topic.

John - Yes, I enabled emails (not stupid) and checked the appropriate type (sendmail).


I said in my note that I am able to send and receive emails - no problem. I am just not getting confirmations when I sign up for a new account so that is obviously a problem with that script.


Sam - I posted here because it's a support forum and my post got buried and I thought maybe someone knowledgeable would pick up on it this time. This is a Support board, right? Sorry to drive you nuts but if you don't have the answer, you can ignore my post. ;)

have you made any contribution changes / additions which have an effect on these areas?


you can turn on sql session logging in the admin area to see what is going on, as well as look as the server error and access log files
