Old-Status: Open
Status: Closed
Bug Type: Mail related
Operating system: Win 2000
PHP Version: 4.0.6
Description: mail() returns an "Unknown error ..." in line [mail(...)]

It wasn't a bug.
I placed the php.ini in winnt\system32, not in winnt.
Now it's on the right place and it works.
Sorry, best wishes for php.

If i change the count of parameters to two, I get this Result:
--- line before mail function ---
Warning: Wrong parameter count for mail() in C:Inetpubwwwrootphprootmail.php on line 
--- line after mail function ---

i hope its really a bug and not a documentation problem, but I did'nt found a way to 
solve the problems in several php web sites, manuals or newsgroups :-(

My system:
Windows 2000
PHP 4.0.6 (win32 binary downloaded from
Apache 1.3.12 an IIS (Win2000-included)
   I used both! webservers  on different ports, I got exactly the same result!

I want to create a mail while using this code:
<script language="php">
    echo ("--- line before mail function ---");
    mail ("[EMAIL PROTECTED]", "PHP mail test","test mail body");
    echo ("--- line after mail function ---");

I got this result:
--- line before mail function ---
Warning: Unknown error in C:Inetpubwwwrootphprootmail.php on line 17
--- line after mail function --- 

In the php.ini I changed the SMTP entry several times. I could change it in a valid, 
an invalid mailserver or i commentet it out (;SMTP = ]), I always got the same result.
For me It seems that the php engine ignores the SMTP entry.

I didn't got help in the php newsgroups, so I think it is'nt a simple problem.
So I hope you can help me.

Best regards
