Qmail question... configuring php.ini

Don't know if anyone can help me out or not or if this is even in the correct topic area?

I have a server that is using qmail on a Redhat 9 box for a while now and everything works great.

I don't have sendmail installed on my box at all.

My issue is when I try to use the php mail fuction it does not work.

I looked into my php.ini and I noticed a section for mail

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = localhost

; For Win32 only.
sendmail_from = me@localhost.com

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i
So it looks as if my php.ini is still setup to use sendmail....

What is the proper synatax to use qmail?

I have tested my scripts on a server using sendmail and they work fine looks as if there is just a configuration issue with php.ini which I just don't know proper syantax to fix.

Thanks in advance.

Even if the PHP script specifies the path to sendmail,
it does not matter, since qmail has sendmail binary support.
So having sendmail is not required to make the script work.

You simply link the sendmail binary with the qmail-version of
the sendmail binary with the command:

ln -s /var/qmail/bin/sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail

After that, any call references to /usr/sbin/sendmail
will be handled by qmail's sendmail emulator.
