It IS possible to run the mail function on a Win machine - I had a Win2000/IIS(with 
its own SMTP stub) box running PHP
mail happily.
Also it is possible to have a Win-with-no-local-SMTP configuration. I have re-jigged 
my WinNT portable to run the same
PHP/Apache script connecting directly to my ISP's SMTP server (in part using the path 
var mentioned).
I haven't tried to combine email with 'headers' though!
...if that's the problem...
