What is your question exactly?

Your code seems fine - is it not working? If so then there could be something with your PHP configuration that has not been setup correctly. Mail uses settings in the php.ini file to send email.

A better option might be to use PHPMailer. Among other features it allows you to send mail over an authenticated SMTP link bypassing any localhost configuration issues.

Let us know more about what your problem is - your question as it stands is not clear.

I'm with Julian. Your question could be more clear.

I'm guessing what you mean is if you move the above code from one hosting company (machine) to another, will the code work?

If this is your question, then the answer is sometimes yes + many times no.

The only way to ensure mail code works, independent of where it's moved, is to use a relay service.

MailGun is the cheapest. First 10K messages free each month. Be sure to put in a credit card to enable all features, then go through their DNS record setup completely, till you get a 100% verification from their DNS verification tool.

Convey now meaning without context.

My suggestion is you use swaks to test your connection + make sure your actual sending mechanism, whatever you're using, works correctly first.

Then convert your swaks command to PHP.

I always start with swaks first. This saves a massive amount of time.

If a swaks command fails, post the entire command + errors produced.
