    Regarding Mass-Emailing

    I tried reading up on people who had similar issues but couldn't find a working solution. Anyways, I recently moved my forum to a Windows 2003 Dedicated Server and can't seem to email any members. Here's the vB Diagnostics:

    SMTP: localhost
    sendmail_from: [email protected]
    sendmail_path: None

    The mailing function returned an error while trying to send the mail.
    Check your mail server to ensure it is configured correctly to allow PHP to send mail from it. You should also check your mail server's error log for more diagnostic information.
    And my php.ini settings:

    [mail function]
    ; For Win32 only.
    SMTP = localhost

    ; For Win32 only.
    sendmail_from = [email protected]

    ; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
    sendmail_path =
    Am I supposed to put anything in the "sendmail_path" part of php.ini? Or alternatively, do I need any sort of mail application for Win2k3 to use the mail function? In the IIS Manager, I see "Default SMTP Virtual Server", so since this is the 1st time I've worked with a dedicated server before, I'm not sure how to properly set this up. Thanks in advance for any help with this

    Actually, disregard this. I checked this thread and figured it out
