wierd problem with mail function


Recommended Posts

I have installed latest version of uniform server(5.1)

OS : WinXP

Processor : intel centrino duo

Antivirus McAfee


I'm trying to make uniform server to be able to send mail using SMTP(gmail)


no matter what I do, i can't seems to make uniform server to be able to send email using my Gmail account.


weirdly enough using another PC and XamPP server the same setup works perfectly.


I already uncomment extension=php_openssl.dll in php.ini(and of course restart the server)


the script im using to test whether a mail successfully sent is using wordpress smtp mail plugin.


anyone here can help me?

“I already uncomment extension=php_openssl.dll in php.ini”

Strange that should be already enabled on 5.1


Does the log file show any errors?



Anyway you do require the following files to be placed in the php folder:

ssleay32.dll and libeay32.dll


Download file: php-5.3.0-Win32-VC6-x86.zip

From: http://windows.php.net/download/#php-5.3-ts-VC6-x86


Extract to any folder and copy the above files

From folder: *\php-5.3.0-Win32-VC6-x86

To folder: UniServer\usr\local\php


Note: Do not be tempted to use the ones from Xampp they compile their own.


All the best

Ric :)
