Hi all,

I'm very puzzled by this. I've been using the php mail command for years but now I can't get it to work and can't figure out how to diagnose the problem.

php-5.2.29 on fedora10 with apache 2.2.14.  Can this be selinux related?

The first ini_set variable you're setting I believe will only work for a
Windows server.

Aside from that, yes SELinux does prevent the mail command from sending
mail by default. I'm using Fedora 11, so I assume it will be similar;
there are config tools for setting SELinux policies, or you could even
turn it off (not advised on a live server). As a test, try turning it
off temporarily just to see if it is the culprit, then you can determine
what policy changes need to be made.

Thanks, Ash, but no cigar. Selinux is set disabled. Absolutely baffled and confounded that there doesn't seem to be a way to diagnose the problem.
