Thanks for that information. I was suspecting that I needed something else, but I didn't know what. I found the QSECO.FR repositories and installed msmtp and got it working.

In that vein, is there a list of repositories that can be added to yum for the IBMi open source? I currently have:

The mail() function in PHP needs a program that implements sendmail,
since it delegates the actual mail sending part to it. I assume you'd
just want SMTP, then msmtp provides a sendmail implementation that
works with PHP without being an entire mail server in of itself. I
think others might have packaged things like Dovecot if that's not
enough. You can grab them from repositories like QSECOFR. They need
configuration so they know where to send mail.

Shameless self-promotion: I work at Seiden Group and we offer a
commercially-supported version of community PHP. Among the things it
includes, there's a sendmail program (msmtp) packaged plus
documentation and expert guidance on how to use it.
