Trouble sending mails with php


I'm using code that needs to send a mail, I tryed using mail, but It just won't send mail, but the return code returns TRUE.

I installed RH9, and sendmail is installed too, in my php.ini, I have this line

sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i

I checked the path, and sendmail is in there

I used this

$ret=mail("", "My Subject", "Line 1\nLine 2\nLine 3");

$ret should return error in case of failure but returns TRUE, but it's not sending mail anyway.

i think, mail is sent but not delivered to destination successfully because of some configuration prob
check maillog messages for trouble-shooting (generally in /var/log/ directory)
u will definitely get some thing there

Could you give us more of your logfile?

The message is accepted, queued, but then...?
