I do still have one problem that xampp didn't fix. I run an IPB Board instead of phpBB but the problem would be exactly the same for either. No matter what I do, I can't get the mail function to work at all. For example, when you register here, you get an e-mail that you have to click a link to activate your account. IPB works the same and I need for it to work. I have access to various different e-mail server softwares if that's what I need to do. Is there an easy way to do this? If not, can anyone explain the hard way? Any help would be much appreciated.

As a last resort I set up Ice Warp Merak Mail Server Pro and put in my domain and the last two test e-mails I sent out quit giving me errors but I sure don't know where they went because they never did end up in my inbox. I suppose I'll just have to wait a few months until I get my Linux server set up.

IPB ERROR: No Info
SMTP CODE: No Info

There are 2 things I'm unsure of. In my domain settings, it won't let me set MX but it will accept MXE (Mail Easy). The second thing is I have no idea what to put in for the mail to in apache. Also, I'm assuming that I should be using my ISP's mail servers?
