Henrik, It is my opinion (too?) that mail() is difficult to use in a non-trivial application. I have not used/investigated sockets. I have had good success with a 'wrapper class/function set' for mail(). I'm wondering if I should also look at what you have proposed. What does the extra effort of using sockets give you that using a decent wrapper for mail() wouldn't? For example do you get a 'msg sent' confirmation advice? Does the socket-based connection require more than standard access (Id/pswd) to the SMTP server? -is it both Linux and Windows compatible? -is it both in-house server and ISP compatible?
