Sending Fail (test and queue process)

Hi I’m getting a send fail,
I’ve checked all my config.php settings making sure test is set to 0.
Checked my send log here it is as follows
Error sending email to ***** Could not instantiate mail function

All settings have not change with the expetion to the test and the database.
Been trying to figure this out but no look on the forms or online. All them seem to point to Make sure Test is 0
which i’ve done.

Also i should state i’m testing this on local internal server with linux installed. i’ve checked the phpinfo and all seems fine
here’s the path to sendmail
Path to sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i

not sure if i need to change or put these values in the config file or not?



Your error is saying that the phpList program cannot talk with the mail server.
I’d check these items:

  1. Make sure that you can successfully send an email from the command line. Adjust your server until it can send an email .

  2. Once the mail server is in good shape, you should adjust the following in the config.php:

    To use a SMTP please give your server hostname here, leave it blank to use the standard

    PHP mail() command.
