Posting mail through PHP...

Can someone tell my why this simple line isn't working?
I don't receive my mail in HOTMAIL :(
i use the free host on www.nexen.net

$recipient = "my@hotmail.com";
$subject = "Subject";
$message = "Message";
mail($recipient, $subject, $message);

RE: Posting mail through PHP...

They probably do not have a mail server set up. You should contact them and ask them.

If you need a mail server set up, look a couple of posts back (I think that it is called How to set up a Mail Server), and it should have some good links. I was the original to ask the question and I got a good reply.

Hope this helps,

RE: Posting mail through PHP...

I had the same problem when trying to build a mail form. I checked my smtp and server and they all matched what they should've been. I am running a local host on WIN 2K -- and WIN2k may be the problem. -- I'll keep you posted as to what I find.
