Re: [drupal-15] Drupal won't send mail!

Thanks for your swift response!  Proving once again that Drupal peeps are the best peeps!

John:  I haven't tried setting up a basic php page to do that, but I have been successful in using Outlook (installed directly on the server) to send mail out.  Also, a co-worker who is building an MS Sharepoint version of the same prototype project for Jeffco DPS, was successful in using SP to send a test mail.  I'm certainly willing to try this.  In the interest of time, can you recommend any sample code I could work off of?  If not, I'm sure I can track something down on the net.  Thanks.

Karyn:  The SMTP Authentication Support module uses PHPMailer as part of its function, which is installed inside.  I haven't tried using it on it own.  I'll give this a shot, though.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Desperately yours,

That does sound annoying.

I guess my first question would be - can you set up a non-drupal PHP
page which sends emails successfully?  Because if php isn't talking to
mail on this MS Server 2008 box, then from the point of view of Drupal
there's not much to be done.
