Problem when sending mail with Zend Mail?

I'm trying to send an e-mail with ZendMail ( this simple script sums it up )

<?php
require_once 'Zend/Mail.php';

$mail = new Zend_Mail();
$mail->setBodyText('My Nice Test Text');
$mail->setBodyHtml('My Nice Test Text');
$mail->setFrom('test@example.com', 'Mr Example');
$mail->addTo('contact@mypage.com', 'Mr Test');
$mail->setSubject('TestSubject');
$mail->send();
?>


However I get this stack trace:

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Zend_Mail_Transport_Exception' with message 'Unable to send mail. ' in /usr/share/php/libzend-framework-php/Zend/Mail/Transport/Sendmail.php:137 Stack trace: #0 /usr/share/php/libzend-framework-php/Zend/Mail/Transport/Abstract.php(348): Zend_Mail_Transport_Sendmail->_sendMail() #1 /usr/share/php/libzend-framework-php/Zend/Mail.php(1178): Zend_Mail_Transport_Abstract->send(Object(Zend_Mail)) #2 /var/www/hexreaction/mail/index2.php(11): Zend_Mail->send() #3 {main} thrown in /usr/share/php/libzend-framework-php/Zend/Mail/Transport/Sendmail.php on line 137


EDIT:

I'm not trying to use SMTP to send my e-mail and I'm having a less horrible problem, but still a problem.

<?php
require_once 'Zend/Mail.php';
$config = array('auth' => 'login',
'username' => 'contact@mypage.com',
'password' => 'secretpass');

$transport = new Zend_Mail_Transport_Smtp('smtp.gmail.com', $config);

$mail = new Zend_Mail();
$mail->setBodyText('This is the text of the mail.');
$mail->setFrom('contact@mypage.com', 'Some Sender');
$mail->addTo('contact@mypage.com', 'Some Recipient');
$mail->setSubject('TestSubject');
$mail->send($transport);
?>


This throw's this error, I don't really get why:

Fatal error: Class 'Zend_Mail_Transport_Smtp' not found in /var/www/hexreaction/mail/index3.php on line 7


EDIT 2:

This is my final working code

require_once('Zend/Mail/Transport/Smtp.php');
require_once 'Zend/Mail.php';
$config = array('auth' => 'login',
'username' => 'somemail@mysite.com',
'password' => 'somepass',
'ssl' => 'tls');

$transport = new Zend_Mail_Transport_Smtp('smtp.gmail.com', $config);

$mail = new Zend_Mail();
$mail->setBodyText('This is the text of the mail.');
$mail->setFrom('somemail@mysite.com', 'Some Sender');
$mail->addTo('somemail@mysite.com', 'Some Recipient');
$mail->setSubject('TestSubject');
$mail->send($transport);

Answer

As you can see in the Stack trace Zend_Mail uses Zend_Mail_Transport_Sendmail as transport adapter.
So make sure a sendmail-compatible MTA (e.g. Postfix) is running on your system.

As an alternative you could use the Zend_Mail_Transport_Smtp transport adapter and use an external SMTP-Server like so

$tr = new Zend_Mail_Transport_Smtp('mail.example.com', array(
    'auth'     => 'login',
    'username' => $username,
    'password' => $password,
    'port'     => $port,
));
Zend_Mail::setDefaultTransport($tr);

Edit: For your 2nd Problem: a require_once('Zend/Mail/Transport/Smtp.php'); should help.
