Hi, I know this may be a stupid question for those of you who know. I just want to know what configuration I should make in the php.ini ocnfiguration file so I can be able to use the PHP mail function. In my company we have a local mail server (on our LAN) with a fixed IP address (different from the one where PHP is running from) and I wonder if the mail server IP address should be mentioned somewhere in the config file?
It depends. If there is a sendmail program on your system PHP configure will do its best to determine where it is and use it. Otherwise you can set it explicitly. Have a look at the Installing/Configuring for mail() in the manual pages for more information:
