    Default Sending through SMTP instead of web server

    My host frequently has problems with the mail queue getting backed up and this results in very late delivery of the mail from formmail. Here is their suggestion below. My question is, how do I implement this is in formmail (and not use their recommended script):

    "Yes, it does look like the mail queue is currently clogged again.

    An alternative solution is to have your messages sent through SMTP which
    will send messages through the mail servers (not affected by the current
    issue), instead of from the web server (which is affected).

    If your current mail script doesn't support this, then you can try using
    this one:

    PHPMailer"

    Default Re: Sending through SMTP instead of web server

    Have you checked out the "PEAR settings" in FormMail:

    http://www.tectite.com/fmdoc/pear_settings.php

    If PEAR is installed on your server, you should be able to use that to send mail via SMTP directly.

    Peace...
