=Some web-hosts only have the one PHP.INI. That means you would have to use
what they define as SMTP server. I don't know (a) what the host may define,
(b) what you will find acceptable... ie it may or may not result in an
issue/be relevant to you.

=each PHP/web server has its own PHP.INI file. Thus each defines its own
(default) SMTP server.

=it may not be necessary to move SMTP servers: remember that your FROM:
address can be [EMAIL PROTECTED] even though the PHP-defined SMTP server is

=if you use a good script/class, each application you build can define its
own SMTP parameters and have its own domain/From address, etc.

=a pleasure.

=did I understand the intent of the question correctly?
