Help with e-mail configuration


#1

Hi. I’m rather new to this things of php.
I’m trying to emulate an Intranet system on my computer (I’m the server) and in my localnet I try to send mail between two computers at home.

When I try to do this, that means I’m not connected to the Internet, I have read that I need to have a program like Sendmail or Qmail to be able to do this.

First, I’m using windows 98 (soon XP), Apache, php and mysql.
The stated mail programs runs under Lynux or Unix.

IS THERE ANY PROGRAM THAT I CAN USE INSTEAD OF THE SAID PROGRAMS?

Thanks beforehand.

Don’t know much about this but have you tried using sockets and an SMTP? I Googled and found this http://www.postcastserver.com/. Make sure you read a understand the corresponding RFC’s for email and understand how the SMTP protocal works.

Good luck.
