Joomla Article eMail not send (com_mailto)

If your mail from clicking the 'mail' icon at the articel is not send, there could be a problem with the connection timeout to your mail server.

The Joomla MailTo Component fails already if the timeout is lower then 20. Fix it with removing this statement from the MailTo Component.

  1. Go to the your Joomla base dir, go to components → com_mailto and open the controller.php. The Problem is at line 48.
  2. Change if ($timeout == 0 || time() - $timeout < 20) to if ($timeout == 0).
  3. To serve more informations, maybe change line 51 from JError::raiseNotice(500, JText::_('COM_MAILTO_EMAIL_NOT_SENT')); to JError::raiseNotice(500, JText::_("Timeout!"));
  4. Try again. If the mail is still not send, the timeout was not the problem, then check your Mail Server Data.

This solution was tested with Joomla 3.2.1, 3.2.2. and 3.3.1
