Question: How do I setup PHP mail for Windows?

Answer: Geeklog prior to version 1.3.9 uses the built-in mail function in PHP. In your php.ini file find the following section header: [mail function]

Setup the smtp directive to either you local server or your ISP. Also setup the sendmail_from directive. That should do it.

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = mail.mw.centurytel.net

; For Win32 only.
sendmail_from = admim@somegeeklogsite.com

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
;sendmail_path =

Starting with Geeklog 1.3.9, you can make those settings in Geeklog's config.php instead. See this FAQ entry for details.
