Hi everyone,

I am under the free host x11.10hosting.com.

I have a website that sends out 2FA codes as well as a forgot password request to the registered email on file.

Everything worked just fine until when I noticed today that the site cannot email GMail. All others are working fine.

I have searched the whole day for a solution and nothing so far.

The PHP script below will send a test message every time the page is refreshed. If I enter a hotmail or yahoo address or any other it works just fine. Gmail however doesn't.


$headers = 'From: <no-reply@mywebsite.comr>' . "\r\n" .
'Reply-To: <no-reply@mywebsite.com>';

mail('<myemail@gmail.com>', 'Test Message', 'the test message', $headers,
'no-reply@mywebsite.com');


Any ideas?

Thanks!

Forgot to mention:

What's interesting about this problem is that from Roundcube mail I can send emails to Gmail.

Thanks!

Gmail is likely rejecting it due to it being unauthenticated mail by just using mail().

It would take a lot to get it to accomplish that task, but I would recommend using a library like PHPMailer

Hi mrburnsx,

Thanks for your reply.

I had it working and it was just fine. Unfortunately phpmailer is not allowed on the free host. Just now I noticed the entire thing went down (cpanel and website). I am hoping they are "rebooting"..

My script works on another test server with a local email account. Not sure what else I can do. If it fixes itself I'll post it here.

PHPMailer is allowed on free hosting. I'm not sure where you got that it is not allowed.

I have phpmailer on the x11 free host and it is blocked. I do have a domain name btw.

Also: yesterday's outage did not "fix" the issue.

Going to try swiftmailer today
