desc :
using the mail() function in a php scrit, the parser connects to the mail server (i see on my control panel of that mail server), then don't send anything and stop : i get that message on my browser :
FATAL: emalloc(): Unable to allocate -11773805 bytes 

i've FTP and GD 1.8 DLL loaded

my mailserver is "Internet Anywhere Mail Server 3.2.1 (

IT happend suddenly after 3 hours of test, and now it's 100% reproduction : never get the script to work again. nothing changed in my config between the last OK reload and the first non-OK.

After a reboot, it always says :
FATAL: emalloc(): Unable to allocate -11773805 bytes 

i can't figure out what it could be.

I can't see how this is duplicate of #7447.

I must've f***ed up. Too many browser windows, I guess. Sorry.

Does this happen with PHP 4.0.6 ?
