Problem Sending Emails using PHP mail

If you are having issues sending out emails using the standard PHP mail you need to make sure that you have sendmail installed and running on the server.

To install sendmail do the following:
yum install sendmail

Then you’ll want to make sure to start the new services:
service sendmail start

Lastly, you’ll want to make sure that sendmail starts automatically after a reboot.
chkconfig sendmail on

If you are still having issues after following the above steps, then you might have a issue where your IP is blacklisted from the recipient server using spam filtering. You can check your IP by using MXToolBox.com.
