What does a Webserver have  to do with a mail-transport? Maybe they have
installed Webserver but not set up a mail-transport?

I have always used a nice wrapper class for sending emails in which you can
spesifiy an external mail server (For small simple things makes
configuration much easier).


This ins't the best way of sending out many emails but does the job for a
few emails, with out having to have a mail transport set up and installed.

Also this wrapper can be changed to use the localmail transport with a
change in config. :P
