Okay, i concluded that my SMTP server was faulty from the Apache package that I downloaded. I have a new package now, and it works... sorta. I have it set-up with Outlook express so that i can send e-mails with Outlook (or a script). Problem: It only allows me to sent to localhost. If I put my e-mail in the e-mail script, it would say it was sent, but in the Murcury program (my SMTP thingy), it shows as one of the processess:
Temporary error 249 (temporary MX resolution error) resolving 'aol.com'.
(my email is email@example.com
But, if I replace my email address with admin@localhost, it send it, and I am able to log in Outlook under Admin and read it. Same goes with sending it. If I'm logged onto aol (using xxtremegamer9999), and send an email to my admin account on my computer (admin@<IP_ADDRESS_GOES_HERE>), the 'AOL Postmaster' sends me a email saying that it failed.
So, basically, I can't send my emails from localhost to non-localhost, and vise versa.
Can anyone help?
I have Windows XP, the downlaod package I have has this:
PHP 5.0.2 + PHP 4.3.9 + PEAR
PHPMyAdmin 2.6.0 pl1
Mercury Mail Transport System for Win32 and NetWare Systems v4.01a
FileZilla FTP Server 0.9.3
Zend Optimizer 2.5.3
And a little program that the package makers made:
PHP-Switch win32 1.0 (by Apachefriends, use the "php-switch.bat")
(switches from PHP5 to PHP4, and vise-versa)
