I’m not receiving emails from mail() function.
I created a php test:
<?php ini_set( 'display_errors', 1 ); error_reporting( E_ALL ); $from = "email@example.com"; $to = "firstname.lastname@example.org"; $subject = "PHP Mail Test script"; $message = "This is a test to check the PHP Mail functionality"; $headers = "From:" . $from; $headers .= "Reply-To: $to"; var_dump(mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers));
The output is…
I’m using a LEMP droplet on Ubuntu 16.06. I already installed postfix, opened port 25 and checked my host file…
127.0.0.1 localhost.crazytraction localhost amsterdam
which I think is correct (amsterdam is the hostname)
I can receive the email in one of my accounts, but I tried other 3 and none of them received the email, even Gmail is not receiving it.
What Am I doing wrong?
Btw, I tested to send an email using the same function on another droplet and it worked, so it has to be something with the environment, but I cannot figure what it is!
I spent hours tonight trying to figure out why sendmail and the php mail() function wouldn’t work on my DigitalOcean server. I followed all of the tutorials and couldn’t get anything to work. It turns out Gmail was blocking all of the mail coming from my DigitalOcean server. The mail I was sending couldn’t even make it to the spam folder. I discovered this by running sendmail from the command line. I then tried sending mail to a non-gmail account, and it worked just fine! So if anyone else is going through hell trying to figure this out, try sending some mail to a non-gmail account, or try running sendmail from the command line to see if you get some sort of error about Google / Gmail blocking your mail to prevent spam.
AND ONE MORE THING: The DigitalOcean server that was blocked by Gmail was not associated with a domain name, it simply had an IP address. I tried using sendmail and the php mail function on another DigitalOcean server of mine that is associated with a domain name, and that email was NOT BLOCKED. So if Gmail is blocking mail from your DigitalOcean server, it may be because your server isn’t associated with a domain name.
