after chatting with tech support and a few tests, theres nothing that i can do to over-ride the sendmail_from. theres nothing they can do either. apparently the settings are on the server in a way that it cant be overriden.
so i went to the pear option. at first i got the file not found errors, but after playing around with pear path, i finally got rid of it, and now im getting this error: Fatal error: Class 'Net_SMTP' not found in /home/reblove/php/Mail/smtp.php on line 349
so i dug around in cpanel, and i found where where the pear installations are. i had it re-install both the MAIL, net_smtp and some other NET package too. i couldnt get the errorr to resolve.
any idea how to troubleshoot this one?
in the universal email option to send mail (not the pear option, just the regular mail option) is it possible to have it authenticate and send through the server? or does this method NOT use authentication at all?
