    What is vB's email component?

    I'm trying to resolve an email problem with vB through my host, and they have asked me:

    What kind of email component is vBulletin trying to use?
    I'm not sure what to answer...

    Thanks for your help.

    vB uses PHP's mail() function for all its email and uses the SMTP server specified in php.ini. If PHP and the mail server are configured correctly then email will work.
