Not a bug, seek for more support on the mailinglist.

1) this is a bug tracking tool, not a support forum
   please ask support questions on the php-general
   mailing list (

2) you have read the configuration instructions
   on ?

3) your script would most likely fail even if
   the mail server talked to you

     $to  = "$name1 <$mail1>"; 

   is wrong, you have to quote the real name:

     $to  = "\"$name1\" <$mail1>";
