mail() only works when connected to mysql


sending mail using function mail() only works when I'm connected to
mysql.

<?
mail($to, $subject, "before mysql_connect() ", "From: $from");
mysql_connect(" localhost", $username, $password);
mail($to, $subject, "after mysql_connect() ", "From: $from");
?>

The above code results in a single e-mail containing "after
mysql_connect() ".

I don't have a clue of what could be wrong or where to start looking.
I've upgraded the OS, but it didn't help.

Can someone help me figure out what might be wrong?

My setup:
FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p2
Apache/1.3.35
4.1.18-log
PHP 4.4.2

'./configure' '--with-apache=../apache_1.3.35' '--with-openssl'
'--with-gd' '--with-mysql' '--enable-trans-sid' '--enable-track-vars'
'--with-jpeg-dir=/usr' '--with-png-dir=/usr' '--with-zlib=/usr'
'--enable-mbstring' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-exif'
'--with-freetype-dir=/usr/local' '--with-pspell=/usr/local'

php ini
sendmail_path /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i
SMTP localhost
smtp_port 25

Does your smtp server require outgoing authentication, possibly the
mail is failing because no creditentials were supplied and after you've
connected to mysql its using the same creditentials as specified for
that. either way.. check your syslog for error messages it should tell
you exactly what the issue was.

Flamer.

Hello, I have a little problem and although it's little it's extremely difficult for me to describe it, but I'll try. I have written a program which extracts certain portions of my received e-mail.

I have a strange situation using Access to automate a Word mail merge. Using Access 2000 and Word 2000, the code opens Word, opens the document in Word, sets a table in the calling Access application as the data source, and then performs a merge. Everything works fine. However, when a user uses it in Access 2002 and Word 2002, an extra instance of the Access application is opened and remains open at the end. Sometimes it remains open

Hello all, <SIGH> I'm soooooo sick and tired of getting spam e-mails. I'm sure that part of the reson for this is that my e-mail address is publicly available on my website, ready to be picked by e-mail harvesting programs. I tried to thwart them by adding a REMOVE_THIS in my e-mail address (username@REMOVE_THISispname.net), but the e-mails have not stopped. As for NG's, I have the return address blocked in a similar fashion.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
