I am getting error as my mailing list application isn't configured with smtp server.[snip]
I contacted my isp provider that is aol, they give details of configuring smtp with applications like outlook express.
I have pasted the error i receive and other details related to my application. Any suggestion and guidance.
In the Outgoing Mail Server section, click the My server requires authentication check box.
This is going to prevent you from using mail() without a locally installed SMTP server. mail() does not do authentication. You could try one of the classes from PEAR or phpclasses.org, though.
In the Outgoing mail (SMTP): field, change the number that displays to 587.
I guess "587" is the name of AOL's outgoing SMTP server for you? Change the below line in php.ini to reflect that, then.
[mail function] ; For Win32 only. SMTP = localhost
SMTP = 587
