Email Script does not reach destination

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

Hey Guys look at this code snippet :
//read a line from the file

$myFile = "MailFile.txt";
$fh = fopen($myFile, 'r');
$theData = fgets($fh);
echo $theData;

/send Email
$to = "'$theData'";
$subject = "AvailPay new customer Transaction Receipt";
//$message = "Welcome to AvailPay© .rnPlease keep this for your recordsrnBelow is your transaction information:rn";

$message = "welcome";

if (mail($to, $subject, $message)) {
echo("<p>Message successfully sent!</p>");
} else {
echo("<p>Message delivery failed...</p>");

I'm reading a file and then using that line as the email address.
I get the "Message successfully sent!" reply - but for some reason the email never arrived at the gmail destination, I also tried it with a yahoo email - same result.

The hosting service said the following:

If you use the mail() function in your PHP, you do not need to specify an outgoing mail server. If you are using some other method besides mail() in your PHP code, use for your relay server.

I'm using the mail() function, but for some reason the email is not getting to the destination. How would I use the in PHP??? Or am I missing something. Thanks in advance.
