Could not instantiate mail function

Could not instantiate mail function. * Request:12485 request.php 201

Any suggestions? Email in and out has been working fine for weeks.

Now both seem to be broken (emails sent to the helpdesk mailbox are not being received or logged either).


Have you updated PHP or changed anything on your server? I’ve never seen a report of this error before, it looks like PHP is having a problem using it’s built in mail function. If you’re not receiving email that would be an issue with the PHP IMAP library and again would perhaps indicated a problem with a recent PHP upgrade.
