    In a browser, check the output of phpinfo() - specifically, the
value for "Loaded Configuration File" - and modify that, as the other
may be for the PHP CLI, another installed component using a local
override, or may not even be used at all.

    Uncomment the two lines above.

    You don't *need* to uncomment and set the `sendmail_from` option,
as long as you set an explicit `From` header in your code.  More on
that after your snippet.

    Your code should be modified just a bit for better conformance and
portability, but I understand that you're just using it as a test.
After following the suggestions above (and remembering to restart
Apache, of course), try this:


  $from = "sherya...@gmail.com";

  // Gmail allows (\+[a-z0-9\.\-_]+) appended to your username to
filter emails in your Gmail box.
  $to = "shreyasbr+phpt...@gmail.com";

  // This will append (at the moment, my local time) 1 Jul 2010, 09:27:23
  $subject = "PHP Testing ".date("j M Y, H:i:s");

  $message = "Test Me.";

  // Create your headers, remembering to terminate each line with CRLF
(\r\n) to comply with RFC [2]821.
  $headers  = "From: ".$from."\r\n";
  $headers .= "X-Mailer: PHP/".phpversion()."\r\n";

  // Send it, or inform us of an error.  No need to use a -f flag here.
  if (!mail($to,$subject,$body,$headers)) {
    echo "Ah, crap.  Something's SNAFU'd here.";
