Hi and welcome to LQ,

Does msmtp works when invoked from CLI, like:
Code:
msmtp niubl967@gmail.com < /u1/ftp/mail.txt
Because it needs a smtp server in order to be able to send out emails. Have a look here to see how to configure it so it uses gmail, or your ISP's mail server as smtp server

Regards

It does not work yet.

Thank you for your reply,#2.But it does not work yet .The .msmtprc's content is:
#Set default values for all following accounts
defaults
tls on
tls_trust_file /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
logfile ~/Mail/msmtplog

# Gmail service
account gmail
host smtp.gmail.com
from niubl967@gmail.com
auth on
user niubl967
password passwd
#port 587
# A freemail service
#account freemail
#host smtp.freemail.example
#from joe_smith@freemail.example
#auth on
#user joe.smith
#password secret

# A second mail address at the same freemail service
#account freemail2 : freemail
#from joey@freemail.example

# The SMTP server of the provider.
#account provider
#host mail.provider.example
#from smithjoe@provider.example
#auth on
#user 123456789
#password my_password
# Set a default account
account default : gmail
-----------------------------
Hope for help.

Hi,

Quote:
#port 587
AFAIK gmail uses port 587 to relay mail, so you need to uncomment the above line. Other than that your ~/.msmtprc looks good.
Also have a look at logs (~/Mail/msmtplog) to see if you find something.

Regards

Hi,

Please define "it does not work"
I've already told you to do your tests from CLI, so you'll see eventual errors either on screen, or in the log file created

Regards

I can send a mail from CLI.A test code is following:

#! /u1/Php/php/bin/php -q

<?php
$a=`ls`;
echo $a;
echo "hello";
$b=`msmtp 353923279@qq.com < /u2/ftp/mail.txt &`;
echo $b;
?>

This code works.

Thanks bathory.
