I use this script to test webapps using mail with this little php script saved as /usr/sbin/sendmail :

#!/usr/bin/php
<?php
   
//====================================================
    // Program : Fake send mail
    // Author : pouletfou at gmail
    // Description : save this file as /usr/sbin/sendmail
    //  and you can test your PHP applications using mail
    //  by looking at the /tmp/fakesendmail.log files.
    //====================================================

   
define('LOGFILE','/tmp/fakesendmail.log');

   
$log = fopen (LOGFILE,'a+');

   
fwrite($log,"\n".implode(' ',$argv).
    
" called on : ".date('Y-m-d H:i:s')."\n");

   
fwrite($log,file_get_contents("php://stdin"));
   
fwrite($log,
"\n===========================================================\n");
   
fclose($log);

?>

$subject = "Subject for reviever"; //subject
$header = "From: ". $Name . " <" . $email . ">\r\n"; //optional headerfields

2 points have to be set :

<?php
ini_set
("SMTP","smtp.example.com" );
ini_set('sendmail_from', 'user@example.com');
?>

or set them in the php.ini file

By doing this, i have fixed definetly this problem :-)

The workaround mentioned above only works with IIS 5 assuming you've configured the Virtual SMTP Server to accept relays. 

In IIS console, right-click SMTP Virtual Server and choose "Properties". On "Access" tab, click "Relay..." button and make sure "All except the list below" is selected.

Warning: This is just a quick fix which exposes a security risk because allowing your SMTP server to be a relay with anonymous access could make your computer susceptible to becoming a spam zombie.  You should properly add your computer's IP address to the list and choose "Only the list below" instead to lock it down.

Under windows there is a bug in php/mail

See here: http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=28038

this results in you being unable to send 'From: Full Name <me@domain.com>'

Workaround is:

Set the following before calling the mail function:

ini_set('sendmail_from', 'me@domain.com);

If you use the function utf8_decode() for the subject variable you can receive text messages readables in utf-8.
