$to = "info@sysnet.by";
$subject = "Test mail";
$message = "Hello! This is a simple email message.";
$from = "test@sysnet.by";
$headers = "From:" . $from;
printf("Mail Sent.\n");

2. Open file and change variables $to and/or $from
3. Execute in shell:

sysnetb@sysnet.by [~/]# php mail-test.php
Mail Sent.
