php code - Sending mail with external SMTP server

Here is the code:

//new function 
function loadini($path) { 
$fp = fopen($path, "r"); 
$fpcontents = fread($fp, filesize($path)); 
return $fpcontents; 
$to = ""; 
$nameto = "notme"; 
$from = "test"; 
$namefrom = "Who From"; 
$subject = "Hello World Again!"; 
$message = loadini("message"); 
/* * * * CONFIGURATION START * * * */ 
$smtpServer = loadini("logfile");; 
$port = "25"; 
$timeout = "30"; 
$username = loadini("users"); 
$password = loadini("password"); 
$localhost = "user"; 
$newLine = "\r\n"; 
/* * * * CONFIGURATION END * * * * */ 
//Connect to the host on the specified port 
$smtpConnect = fsockopen($smtpServer, $port, $errno, $errstr, $timeout); 
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515); 
echo 'Connection response was: ' . $smtpResponse; 
$output = "Failed to connect: $smtpResponse"; 
return $output; 
$logArray['connection'] = "Connected: $smtpResponse"; 
echo 'Response from connection attempt was: ' . $smtpResponse; 
//Say Hello to SMTP 
fputs($smtpConnect, "EHLO $localhost" . $newLine); 
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515); 
$logArray['heloresponse'] = "$smtpResponse"; 
echo 'Response from HELO was: ' . $smtpResponse; 
//Request Auth Login 
fputs($smtpConnect,"AUTH LOGIN" . $newLine); 
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515); 
$logArray['authrequest'] = "$smtpResponse"; 
echo 'Response from AUTH LOGIN was: ' . $smtpResponse; 
//Send username 
fputs($smtpConnect, base64_encode($username) . $newLine); 
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515); 
$logArray['authusername'] = "$smtpResponse"; 
echo 'Response from USERNAME was: ' . $smtpResponse; 
//Send password 
fputs($smtpConnect, base64_encode($password) . $newLine); 
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515); 
$logArray['authpassword'] = "$smtpResponse"; 
echo 'Response from PASSWORD was: ' . $smtpResponse; 
//The Email 
fputs($smtpConnect, 'DATA MIME-Version: 1.0' . $newLine); 
fputs($smtpConnect, 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . $newLine); 
fputs($smtpConnect, 'To: ' . $nameto . '<' . $to . '>' . $newLine); 
fputs($smtpConnect, 'From: ' . $namefrom . '<' . $from . '>' . $newLine); 
fputs($smtpConnect, 'Subject: ' . $subject . $newLine . $newLine); 
fputs($smtpConnect, $message . $newLine); 
fputs($smtpConnect, '.' . $newLine); 
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515); 
$logArray['data2response'] = "$smtpResponse"; 
echo 'Response from THE EMAIL was: ' . $smtpResponse; 
// Say Bye to SMTP 
fputs($smtpConnect,"QUIT" . $newLine); 
$smtpResponse = fgets($smtpConnect, 515); 
$logArray['quitresponse'] = "$smtpResponse"; 
echo 'Response from QUIT was: ' . $smtpResponse; 

When I manually connect to SMTP and send email it works but when I use this script ... fails. Any help?
