outgoing mail not working
I having a little problem trying to send outgoing mail from a php script which communicates with the sendmail service on a fedora lnux distribution. However i had it working before when i was using red hat and there wasn't any complications(confusing).
I've been doing some research on the net and the suggestions were to make sure that the send mail settings were correct. From what i can see they're being the smtp name is correct with the port number and the path to the where sendmail is saved was correct as well.
This is most confusing beause everthing to me seems correct and double checked to see if the sendmail service was actually running and it is
Any suggestions would be cool
Theres nothing wrong with my PHP script. lol

Try to do some easy investigations like
telnet your-smtp-host 25
from your phpBB server.
If this works, try some standard SMTP envelope commands
EHLO <your-host-name> MAIL FROM:<firstname.lastname@example.org> RCPT TO:<email@example.com> DATA From:You To:Some1 Subject:Hello World Just a plain and simple test e-mail .
If you fail at:
telnet command: Your SMTP server is NOT running
RCPT TO: You are not allowed to Relay SMTP on your SMTP server
MAIL FROM: You might hve configured some RBL checking and your adress is not passing that test.
