Update: I solved it. Documented everything below.
I tried so many things, but it just would not work.
I wouldn’t mind using, postfix, exim4, or sendmail. I just need a step by step guide and explanation of what am I doing. I am also using Google Apps for e-mail.
Nov 3 01:14:02 mugbear postfix: error: to submit mail, use the Postfix sendmail command Nov 3 01:14:02 mugbear postfix: fatal: the postfix command is reserved for the superuser
What does this mean?
Update to edit: Fixed by correcting sendmail_path in php.ini with
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i
PHP – Just grabbed from documentation. FYI, I removed my e-mail.
<?php // The message $message = "Line 1\nLine 2\nLine 3"; // In case any of our lines are larger than 70 characters, we should use wordwrap() $message = wordwrap($message, 70); // Send mail('[email protected]', 'My Subject', $message); ?>
Nov 3 07:22:29 mugbear postfix/postdrop: warning: unable to look up public/pickup: No such file or directory Nov 3 07:22:29 mugbear postfix/postdrop: warning: unable to look up public/pickup: No such file or directory
Update to edit3: Fixed this with the following link: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=666018
sudo mkfifo /var/spool/postfix/public/pickup sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart
After that, you’ll get this error:
postfix/master: fatal: bind 0.0.0.0 port 25: Address already in use
Then you will have to check your processes and kill sendmail processes, for example:
[email protected]:/etc/postfix# ps aux | grep mail root 23554 0.0 0.0 8232 1900 ? Ss 10:17 0:00 sendmail: MTA: accepting connections root 27308 0.0 0.0 3004 764 pts/0 S+ 10:30 0:00 grep mail [email protected]:/etc/postfix# kill 23554
What does this mean?

Name service error for name=xen.prgmr.com type=A: Host found but no data record of requested type)
Update to edit4: I ran,
dpkg-reconfigure postfix and selected
did you properly installed postfix ? If yes :
service postfix restart
Find sendmail_path , change the line to sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix -t -i
Here is the complete server / client installation instructions for php client also http://setahost.com/installing-postfix-as-a-default-mail-sending-program-with-php/
follow client installation instructions …
What isn’t working? What do server logs show (both for PHP and mail)? You need to figure out if the problem is with PHP or your MTA.
IMHO, setting up send-only postfix and then using the PEAR Mail library is probably the best bet.
