Enable php default mail() in easyengine

hi am new for server side and also easy php. am created 1 wordpress site with easyengine but mails are not sending. password reset and simple php mail code are also not working please help me :frowning:

apt-get install sendmail

ee stack install --mail

He dont need the whole mail package, he needs the ability for php sending mails, without having a mailserver, nor webmail clients running there.

Sendmail fits more at this case.

There are maaany (really many) reasons that an email reaches spam instead of inbox. Googling around will help you for sure. Also, this tool will help you take proper actions: https://www.mail-tester.com/

"; // Always set content-type when sending HTML email $headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . "\r\n"; $headers .= "Content-type:text/html;charset=UTF-8" . "\r\n"; // More headers $headers .= 'From: ' .

am installed the sendmail by running the command and now am make 1 php mail file to check.

am uploaded the file in below link. page is working but i didn’t get mail after submitting. plz help me.


Use a transactional email service, like SparkPost, SendGrid for sending or install PHPMailer. Or if you want a complex solution try ZohoMail, etc. Mail() is not reliable and shouldn’t be used in production environment in my opinion.

Are the SMTP ports open in your firewall?
