Uhhhh, what you said makes no sense... All I'm asking is what is a decent mail server for windows... At the moment I'm messin with IIS's SMTP thing, but I dont like it very much.......

Downloaded it and installed it, but i have something setup wrong i guess. When ever I try to use

$to = '<me>@hotmail.com';
$subject = 'test';
$message = 'test';
$headers = "From: \r\n" .
      'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion() . "\r\n" .
      "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n" .
      "Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8\r\n" .
      "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit\r\n\r\n";

// Send
mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

I get the error message
Warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 550 550 Delivery is not allowed to this address. in Y:\public_html\common\mail.php on line 12

I am not familiar with that server but this means that you have not enabled send fake mail in your php.ini
I use Mecury Mail Server on Windows.

Try this and see if it works. I don't think that you will be able to send html mail with it though

$knownsender = "you@yourdomain.com"; // this has to be an authorized account on your server
$mailtos = "$to"; // who ever this email is being sent to
$subject = "your subject";
$message = "Dear Web Master,
    You have received a message from someone at OWPT.
    Frist Name: $first_name
    Last Name: $last_name
    Email Address: $email
    The message is:

    WebMaster, Owpt.biz
    This is an automated response, please do not reply!";

if ($ccaddress=="" || $ccaddress==" ")
$header="From: $knownsender";

$header .="From: $knownsender\r\n";
$header .=" Cc: $ccaddress";
// $header.="Bcc: $bcaddress";

if (@mail($mailtos, $subject, $message, $header))
$message ="success";
$message ="error";

This is an example of the sendmail.php for one of my sites. All you do is create a form that posts the data to this. Like I said I am not sure if this will work for your mail server or not but it is worth a try.

here is an example of the form that posts to it

$filename = "contact.php";
$title = "Contact Us";
if ($message =='success') {
  $text ="Your message has been sent and we will reply shortly";
}elseif ($message =='error') {
  $text ="There was an error in creating your message";
  $text ="";
$content = "
  <div class=\"feature\">
    <h3>Contact Us</h3>
    <form method=\"POST\" action=\"send.php\">
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;First Name&nbsp;&nbsp;<input type=\"text\"  name=\"first_name\" id=\"first_name2\"></p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;Last Name&nbsp;&nbsp;<input type=\"text\"  name=\"last_name\" id=\"last_name\"></p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;Your Email&nbsp;&nbsp;<input type=\"text\"  name=\"email\" id=\"email\"></p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Subject&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<select size=\"1\" name=\"D1\" multiple><option></option><option></option><option></option><option></option><option></option></select></p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;<textarea cols=\"38\" rows=\"10\" name=\"body\"></textarea></p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<input type=\"submit\"  name=\"Submit\" value=\"Send\"></p>

You can edit the structure to fit your page
