If the Diagnostic Test indicates that the sendmail path is OK:

Sendmail = Path OK

That means that your current $sendmail_path setting (configuration question #8 at the top of the ushop.pl script) is correct (or at least pointing to a valid file).

----

Now if you are getting a Server Error when just pressing the "Email Test" button on the Diagnostics screen, then that means the problem is one of a couple things:

1) Make sure that you have entered a valid "Primary Email Address" for the storeowner via the uShop Control Panel. The "Primary Email Address" setting can be found on the control panel under GENERAL SETTINGS - EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS.

2) If upon verifying that your sendmail path is correct and you are using a valid "Primary Email Address", you still get a server error when trying the Diagnostic Email Test, then you may need to try removing the default sendmail "-t" option that uShop uses. Below are instructions on how ot remove the "-t" option from sendmail:

STEP 1: Make a backup of your current ushop-lib.pl script... just in case.

STEP 2: Open your current ushop-lib.pl file with any TEXT editor such as WordPad.

STEP 3: Do a search on the following line:

$mail_program = $sendmail_path . " -t";

STEP 4: Change that line to:

$mail_program = $sendmail_path;

STEP 5: Save the script... as TEXT if your editor asks... and try it out!
