Knowledge Base article on common emailer.php problems

Setting up mail is 100% dependent upon your host. Some block all mail traffic. Some go out of their way to make mail work smoothly. Most fall somewhere in between.

benjammin are you having trouble with email.php and smtp.php. I also had the same problem but now it works flawlessly. My problem was that under server address you have to put the IP address of your server, if its your own computer then perferbably assign it a static address and insert that address there. Am using IIS 5.1 and it works fine. Post back if you still have problems.
