I have an Apache server with php installed on it. It is a Linux machine running openSUSE v. 11.3. I have a php script that uses the mail function and I have edited the php.ini file to set the sendmail path to /usr/sbin/sendmail which I believe is correct. I have also restarted the server so the changes take effect. I'm now lost on what to do. Any further direction would be helpful. Thanks.

Was your MTA already configured? What MTA do you have installed? Many different MTAs provide a sendmail binary for compatibility. – Zoredache Nov 4 '11 at 23:42

I don't see the question in here. Just send mail with the mail() command. That's it.
