My country is Spain. Europe. All the servers I've tried have not installed Pear mail. In any case I asked if they could install or install and always has denied. So use these two components because they do not need to utentificación Pear mail via SMTP.

Take the example of changing code manually from "Form to mail" Hotdreamweaver:

How can I configure Form2Mail with a different email server and with SMTP authentication?

If you want to use an external mail server, you can do the following:

STEP 1 - Go to Line # 568 and configure the primary Form2Mail.php file to send via SMTP:

var $ Mailer = "mail";

... change by:

var $ Mailer = "smtp";

Note: This first step is required only in a few servers, in most cases Form2Mail automatically detects that the available method is SMTP.

STEP 2 - Go to Line # 38 and put there if your SMTP server address is different than "localhost"

define ( 'smtp_server', 'localhost');

Note: Steps 3 and 4 are required only if your server requires authentication. If authentication is not required, please ignore these steps:

STEP 3 - Go to Line # 42 to activate authentication:

define ( 'USE_SMTP_AUTHENTICATION', false);

... change by:

define ( 'USE_SMTP_AUTHENTICATION', true);

STEP 4 - On the lines # 43 and # 44 put your username and password.
