Why the need for SMTP server url?
I'm using Universal Email for the first time on a site I do not host so I do not know the smtp server. I sent an email to the host requesting the smpt server and they are confused about why I am asking. I can understand.
When I have hand-built email forms before, I just used the PHP mail command, PHP on the server already configure to know what SMTP server to use. So I have the same question as the host, why is the SMTP server required by Universal Email? Is there a way to use it without knowing the SMTP server and just using the PHP mail command?
Thanks in advance.
