    mail() is not sending email out

    I have following html and php file. When I submit form from html file, I get message from php file without any error, but mail is not received in my mail inbox.
    I am using wamp server on windows server 2003 enterprise edition, which is on vmware.

    I have wamp server on windows 7 Home Premium. When I use these two files on this wamp , I just see that browser is trying to send request. Request does not get sent and I don't receive any error message.

    I have tried using SMTP_PORT = 25 and SMTP_PORT = 587 , both. It does not work in either case.

    PHP Code:

    h2>Alien Abduction Form</h2>
    form action="phpTest2.php" method="POST">
    When It Happened :<input type="text" name="whenithappened" /><br />
    How  Long :<input type="text" name="howlong" /><br />
    input type="submit" value="submit" /><br />
    PHP Code:

    $how_long $_POST['howlong'];
    $to 'manishrathi@yahoo.com';
    $From 'indian.mahajan@bell.net';
    $Headers "From: $From \r\n";
    $subject 'PHP Test';
    $msg $when_it_happened.$how_long ;
    "your message is received";
    php.ini settings for mail()
    [mail function]
    ; For Win32 only.
    ; http://php.net/smtp
    SMTP = smtphm.sympatico.ca
    ;SMTP = localhost
    ; http://php.net/smtp-port
    smtp_port = 25
    ; smtp_port = 587

    ; For Win32 only.
    ; http://php.net/sendmail-from
    sendmail_from = indian.mahajan@bell.net

    ; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
    ; http://php.net/sendmail-path
    ;sendmail_path =

    sendmail_path = "C:\wamp\sendmail\sendmail.exe -t -i"
    How can I check whats wrong and where ?

    I have another file, which invokes following php file. This php file is working fine except mail(). When I click on submit in HTML file, I just see that browser is trying to connect with SMTP server, but nothing is happening. How can I make sure, if SMTP server is running or not

    $fname = $_POST['firstname'];
    $lname = $_POST['lastname'];

    echo "Your first name is ".$fname."<br />";
    echo "Your last name is ".$lname."<br />";

    echo "Thanks for Reporting Abduction <br /><br />" ;

    $connect = mysqli_connect('localhost', 'root', '', 'phptest') or die ("Error connecting to database");

    $query1 = "insert into gwar (firstname, lastname) values ('$fname', '$lname')";

    $result = mysqli_query($connect, $query1) or die ("Error connecting to database");

    $query2 = "select * from gwar";

    $result2 = mysqli_query($connect, $query2);

    while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result2)){
    echo $row['firstname']." ".$row['lastname'].'<br />';

    $to = "jigneshjsoni@gmail.com";
    $sub = "New Abduction Report Received";
    $msg = "New Abduction has been Reported by ".$fname." ".$lname;

    mail($to, $sub, $msg);
