I've read a few tutorials on how to set up the mail() function to work and they haven't helped much. I downloaded a free SMTP server because I knew I'd need one, but that's as far as I've gotten. Can someone briefly explain how to set this up and have it work?

Um, you don't need anything special except php to make the mail() function work...

Did you mean setting up the mail function or the mail server? And is port 25 blocked. See this post if you are referring to the setup of a mail server http://www.phpfreaks...c,100591.0.html

If you have the server set up and are able to send mail via the server control pannel but not from php, you will need to configure php.ini to send mail
