send email with authentication?

Hi all,
I have migrated a website to a new host and now prenotation emails are not going out any more.
The server administrator says it cannot allow emails using php sendmail function.
So, I'm trying to use the PEAR mail using SMTP.
I collected all data needed to fill the mail object settings but I'm not sure about the PEAR path.

- username
- password
- server (
- port 25

The server administrator sent me a php_info extract and here it is:

include_path .:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear (see attachment)

What should I put in the PEAR path field?
Is it right to put ".:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear" there?

I tried to put this value straight in the pear path field but I get a system error 500 when I submit the form.

Or perhaps, have I to ask the server administrator to install pear on the website directory?
