That is assuming this user still has a copy of 1.7.3 or downloads 1.7.3 from the file repository.
This knowledgeable user may also be able to use the 1.7.3 version as a template/example to use in 1.7.4 using the latest MSMTP version - I found the examples that Wiedmann included in the ini file were somewhat confusing and limited that really required the reading of the associated documentation
to understand what it all means - there were many posts about the use of MSMTP and it's ini file content for some difficult implementations, IIRC all of which were solved.
It was quite sometime before we all realized that in 1.7.3 we were using MSMTP and not Fake Sendmail, it wasn't well announced, but the clue was found, as usual, in the readme_en.txt file.
The version of MSMTP in 1.7.3 is now old 1.4.19 October 24, 2009
, the latest version 1.4.24 April 27, 2011
and is available from the link I provided.
By all means copy over the one from 1.7.3 but update the files using the latest version.
I found the latest version of fake sendmail version 32 (18 June 2011)
with the SSL/TLS facility quite adequate for XAMPP and after renaming by making a Copy of the original sendmail folder it just extract with overwrite in to it's place - minus the source folder if not required, save the zip archive for future use.
