Hi,

After writing this code in PHP:
<html>
<head>
<title>PHP Test</title>
</head>
<body>
<?
$counter = 1;
while ( $counter <= 5 ) {
mail("test6389@hotmail.com", "Test", "\n\n\Test");
$counter = $counter + 1;
}
?>
</body>
</html>

I get this:

CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:

winsock.dll unusable. 1009

Please tell me what is wrong. I use the latest PHP and the default IIS from windows XP.

There may be chances that you winsock.dll files has been corrupted. Reinistall the dll file.and also try adding the "authenticated users" and "ineteractive "in ur users group.

Check the security settings of the swebsite too

Please be more specific. I am in "Groups" and I have on the right: Administrators, Backup Operators, Guests, Network Configuration, Power Users, Remote Desktop users, Replicator, Users, HelpServicesGroup. What do I do?
