Probably nothing .. but .. your systems administrator can tell you what the problem is. My best guess is that mail configuration has been changed, and your php configuration now needs modification.

Switch to SMTP mail instead, for getting around the problem.

Thanks, nothing changed as I am the administrator. Tried SMTP too but no joy. Everything worked ok and then after a few more changes in appgini it stopped?

I had some email problems with lots of applications. After I upgraded my PHP version (on the server) to PHP 5.6 FPM or above the issue was resolved.

Hope this helps

Hi Barry, did check, using 5.6 already. No changes to this either since I loaded in the updated files from appgini. Not sure what could be causing this, will upgrade to latest version of appgini to see if that makes a difference

Hello bescott53

Some providers has changed policy - they now demand that a from-address is a mail address from the domain.
If for example you have the domain hosted at one.com and your domain is mydomain.com, then a from mail should look like this : fromaddress@mydomain.com.
If you host the site yourself, then just forget this.

By self-hosted, you mean it's hosted locally (at your office or home)? Or on a server located in a data center but managed by you?

If it's hosted locally, your server's IP address (assigned by your ISP) would probably be blocked by most recipient servers. You could check it here: https://mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx ... In this case, you should use a reputable SMTP server for sending mails rather than PHP mail. I'd recommend gmail .. no one would block that :D

If it's hosted in a data center, You should also check the server IP/domain with the above url to make sure it's not black-listed anywhere. If all looks good, you might need to debug sendmail, which is the command used by PHP mail() function. Check this link for how to debug it: http://ibgwww.colorado.edu/~lessem/psyc ... debugging/
