  • How does VB send mail

    I am a newbie learing fast.
    Do you need a mail server for VB to send mail out or is the smtp service on windows 2k server work ?


    Can someone please tell me what is needed to make sure that I can send mail via the admincp .


    Thanks

    vB uses PHP's mail() function for email. You need to configure PHP to use the appropriate mail server.

      I see! I see a mail call smtp server in the php.ini

      SO i do need a mail server.

      Or is SMTP Sever on win2k ok. Correct?

      What is a good mail server that is not too $$$. Mail Hive....! MDEAMON...!!

      Will an Exchange server work?

      any help is well received. Im sure once I get this a better understanding of how vb php coded I will soon be helping others.

        Yes you need a mail server. I assume SMTP on W2K should work. However I had no experience setting up Windows servers.
