Default SMTP for mail()

In the Professional PHP4 books from Wrox series, it do mention about setting the SMTP to be used in UNIX.

Then in Windows, it only mention about the IIS. Since IIS come with a SMTP server, so it can use it.

But I have a question, if I'm running with Apache. How should I install the SMTP for use?

Well, on Windows 2000 and XP, the SMTP server is an NT service that you run independently of the IIS webserver. My test/devel machine runs Win2k, I use Apache as my webserver, and send all email through the SMTP service running on my localhost.

Take care,
