ok managed this part by myself after numerous attempts.
this is used when you have trouble and aren't receiving the orders your customers placed in your email..


the method i used via php mail function

mail.yourdomain.com
smptp host - mail.yourdomain.com
user: contact+yrdomain.com (your order email)
password - choose one which was linked to your order email address

my path to send email was /usr/sbin/sendmail

what i then did, i uploaded a mail.php in the root directory of cscart and added the follwing:


<?php

$to = 'orders@yourdomain.com.com';
$subject = 'the subject';
$message = 'Testing this';
$headers = 'From: orders@yourdomain.com' . "\r\n" .
'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion();

$result = mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
print $result;

?>


after this:

Launch this script by opening the following link:
http://www.your_doma...ectory/mail.php, where replace "your_domain.com" with the name of your domain, "your_cscart_directory" with the name of the directory where CS-Cart is installed on your server as seen from the Web, e.g 'shop' (if applicable). This test script sends an e-mail from the order@domain.com e-mail address to your_email@domain.com
If you see 1 as a result of launching the script that means that the e-mail was sent properly and standard PHP function works correctly on your server. If the recipient entered in the script did not get the sent e-mail, there may be a few reasons for it. Probably there are some mail server settings that block the letter from receiving. Here are some of these reasons:
Recipient address is incorrect;
Recipient's mailbox is full;
Recipient hasn't entered in the last 3 months;
Message size exceeds the fixed maximum message size that is defined on a server;
The letter is rejected as spam so it could be either put into the "Spam" mail section or simply blocked;
Sender host is in a server black list.
Please contact your mail server administrator about it.
If you get 0, it means that the standard PHP function does not work on your server. Contact your server administrator in this case.
If SMTP server is selected in the Method of sending e-mails select box:
Make sure that you entered the correct information under the SMTP server settings section.
Contact your server administrator about the problem with your SMTP server.

In Orders->Order statuses, make sure 'Notify customer' is checked for each status you want the customer notified.
