What's the error? Maybe your server has blocked the use of that function?

If your server has blocked sending of emails, then there's nothing much you can do. Anyhow, it's a problem to ask your host about.

It might be, but it might not. There are a number of places where a host could block the use of sendmail. Anyhow, you're going to ask your host about it (if it's not a free one).

Oops! I misunderstood, since he said OFF my computer Smile

Well, first of all, did you edit anything in the default configuration?

And are you connected to the net when you try to send emails?

Yes, I don't think PHP can send the emails on its own, as it's not a mail program.

It might be easier to use an SMTP server (I know where you can get those).
