You mean PHP is installed on Win2K, and qmail lives on the Linux box, right?

Or are you just telling us your browser is on Windows, which doesn't really
matter to the sending of mail?... OPTION 2.

The path is irrelevant if your sendmail and PHP aren't on the same box,
almost for sure...

I don't see *how* PHP could possibly be expected/allowed to run an arbitrary
program on some other computer than the one that it's living on...

Assuming qmail's sendmail wrapper works just like sendmail, you probably
sendmail_path = "/usr/qmail/bin/sendmail -t"

You may also want to check out other flags like -i

Yes, use \r\n, not just \n if you want to be kosher.

Though Un*x boxes usually fix it for you anyway.

Same as 1.

Same as 1.

Yes.  But qmail isn't involved in this picture at all.

It's almost for sure not that PHP isn't using \r\n
Whatever is going wrong, it ain't that.

I don't see how the qmail/sendmail matters if you are using SMTP to send the

The defaults for -t may be different for qmail/sendmail...
