Is the SMTP set up on your server correct? Might be worthwhile contacting your hosting company if you have one.
Thats the problem im servering from home, what config file would these details be in? (apache, running phpdev) thanks
The SMTP settings are in the PHP.INI file.
If you are windows, then they are required. If you are running on a *nix box, then it’s likely that they are not requried.
