Home Forums Back End Contact Form not working on windows server Re: Contact Form not working on windows server


Ok, I’m going to explain this a little more.

I built a very simple website for a client using php includes, html, and css. Very simple. The form works fine on my development server.

I gave it to the client to put on their own server. They’re using a Windows server. Everything except the contact form works. He’s a IT guy who knows all the server stuff but nothing about PHP or building websites. We’re trying to communicate to figure out the problem but we don’t know what the other is talking about most of the time. I asked if they use SMTP for their email and he said: "SMTP is not installed but we have an internal exchange server for our email. The websites that we have use this server to connect and send email through. I went ahead and install smtp anyways." Basically, I have no idea what this means and how to make it work.

The code I showed in the above comment is exactly what’s on the website. I guess my main question is: What does he need to do to fix it on his end? Or what do I need to do on my end to fix it?

Please help if you can! Thank you!
