Ok, any suggestions of a mail server? I've been looking around and haven't found any definitive for-Apache mail servers. Actually, I was looking at something called James, part of the Apache project. I was having trouble understanding it and all of its parts.
Like I said, I just need basic functionality so the php stuff I test on my Win work station stops giving me errors and will run my scripts that work with the mail functions of php. And - of course, allow me so send mail to myself to make sure its spitting out what I intended. Until now I've only used simple mail forms, so these I would test as far as I could then load them onto my remote server for email testing. My new learning though has me building a large system with a registration system. With the automatic mailing of passwords and thank yous and so on, the stuff won't work on my current setup - unless I comment out the actual send command.
I've looked over a testphp.php on my remote server, but I didn't see anything I recognize as a mail server. Would it be indicated there or am i just missing it or not knowing what I'm looking for?
