Bug #20285 Undefined Function
Submitted: 2002-11-06 10:51 UTC Modified: 2002-11-08 08:09 UTC

Status: Not a bug Package: Mail related
PHP Version: 4.2.3 OS: RedHat Linux 7.1
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

When I try to run any script on either of my two servers (one running PHP 4.2.3 and one running a CVS build from several months ago) mail() mysteriously crashes and spits out the following error:

PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function:  mail() in mailtester.php on line 2

The code tripping the error is as follows:

mail("e-mail@hidden.txt", "Test", "This is a test.\nJonathan");  
echo "<html><body><p>the mail was sent</p></body></html>";

This just started happening; one day everything worked fine, the next day it just quit. I'm running with Qmail and have not changed anything with my Qmail/PHP/Apache/Evironment settings. This occurs both through Apache as well as through the command line.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

You're right. As it turns out, the bug was only existent on the 4.3.0 version of PHP, which I rebuilt a newer version of and everything was fine. Thanks.
