$smtp = Mail::factory('smtp', array ('host' => $host, 'auth' => true, 'username' => $username, 'password' => $password)); Do I still need to install a mail server? I have Evolution Mail on my Linux box, and looks like that is a client and not a server. Or, can I use any of the mail smtp setup, like Google? Or, do use some authentication information from http://helpme.att.net/pdf/uverse/uverse_hsi_qsg_english.pdf, since I use U-Verse at home? Thanks for your help.
