EMAIL CLASS Cannot send email


I am stumped. I am trying to send an email with the email class with no success. I have tried both SMTP and SENDMAIL and I know I am doing SOMETHING wrong but I don't know what.

My code is this:

PHP Code:
public function emailtest(){
//Now the code to send the email
$config['protocol'] = 'sendmail';
$config['mailpath'] = '/usr/lib/sendmail -t -i';
$config['charset'] = 'iso-8859-1';
$config['wordwrap'] = TRUE;
$config["smtp_host"] = "localhost";
$config["smtp_user"] = "[email protected]";
$config["smtp_pass"] = "somepass";
$config["smtp_port"] = 587;
$config["mailtype"] = "text";
$config["crlf"] = "\n";
$config["newline"] = "\n";
$this->email->from("[email protected]";
$this->email->to('[email protected]');
//$emailText = "This is a test";
$emailText "This is the text of an email";
mail("[email protected]","This is a test""This is the message""From: [email protected]");
"<h1>The email was sent</h1>";

Now, the email class doesn't work. However, the standard mail() call seems to work perfectly. Any idea what I am doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Your smtp needs to be setuo in your php.ini file, I use my comcast account for this.

As far as sendmail it also has to be setup.

Here is an application for Windows that will test your mail settings for you.
