    I am useing PHP3 Slashdot type site and when a user sets up a new account the script should send the password in Email. Well Its not doing it at all. I have read the config and install and readme for the script and even emailed the creator of the script still no help. PHP was installed with the sendmail configed but talking to my admin some people have also said its not working. can someone tell me the command to be looking for, that php uses to sendmail? Or if someone has some time and would like to help me try to fix this that would be great.
    Thanks

    i know there is an area in php.ini where you specify the path to sendmail. if this path is wrong it appears to send the mail correctly (no errors) but it's actually never sent. that's what I've seen at least...

    server's php.ini file has the "sendmail" variable set. I continue to forget this point until sendmail mysteriously seems to not work after the mail() function returns just fine. on UNIX, it's /usr/lib/sendmail -t..don't forget the -t--it caused me another hour
    of cluelessness. It says on php.ini that it is not required... but I'll put it in anyway.
    Well It works now so that must be it.
    Thanks for your help
