If that fails, check your mail server's configuration.If I look in mail.log I see this...Aug 21 10:19:53 localhost postfix/postdrop[1597]: warning: unable to look up public/pickup: No such file or directoryIdeas? http://globalcryptonews.com/unable-to/php-warning-mssql-connect-unable-to-connect-to-server-linux.html
