Compiled php and mail doesn't work

software development


hi i wanted to use imap to i compiled my own php cgi per your instructions in the wiki.

i can read imap now but i cant seem to send emails via php, i had a look at the php manual and it says “For the Mail functions to be available, PHP must have access to the sendmail binary on your system during compile time.” i was wondering if when i compiled php sendmail was available? i tried running the command “sendmail” on the command line but to no avail.

any help would be appreciated
