Could anyone please help. Thanks in advance.

I am getting the following error:

Warning: mail() [function.mail]: Failed to connect to mailserver at
"localhost" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port"
setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in
C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\example\contact2.php on line 57


In contact2.php line 57 reads:

mail($email, $subject, $receiptMessage,"From:$toAddress");


What to do?

No. I guess that's the answer. Can you give me advice about a good free mailserver? Thanks in advance.

I used to use the xampp server package and it comes with Mecury Mail. That is the extent of my mail server experince. I personaly don' t like it. Maybe someone else could suggest a better mail server. If you should choose to use Mecury Mail I would be happy to assit in it's setup.
