Description Dan Pisarski 2008-03-06 20:38:59 UTC
When using $wgSMTP on 1.11.1, and therefore using the Pear Mail::factory class, I noticed that all pages on MediaWiki say sending the email failed, reporting:
Mailer returned: 1

But, the email goes through.

I think (but am not sure not being a PHP expert) that this is as simple as the fact that Mail->send() in the Pear object returns "true" with success, and the corresponding MediaWiki function (line 155 of UserMailer.php, in the userMailer function) returns this value, and I am guessing the code above this expects a 0 as a no-error state.

This was on CentOS, uname -a:
Linux swrepos 2.6.18-8.el5 #1 SMP Thu Mar 15 19:57:35 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Pear versions:
Installed packages, channel
Package          Version State
Archive_Tar      1.3.2   stable
Console_Getopt   1.2.3   stable
Mail             1.1.14  stable
Net_SMTP         1.2.11  stable

using a smtp server that requires no authentication.

All strings and positive integers (and some other variables) are equivilant to true (under normal circumstances) in PHP, therefore the value 1 is equal to true so this cannot be the problem.

(In reply to comment #1)
> All strings and positive integers  ... are equivalent to true
IIRC, negative integers are also true. Only the integer 0 is cast to false. It is possible, of course, that a === test is used somewhere, which would fail: 1 !== true
