Do I change the SMTP configuration in Silverstripe? Or in the server configuration? I used the Windows installer, wouldn't it be configured already? Or would it not work until I set up an email system?

I'm really really a newbie when it comes to dealing with the server

Thanks again!

I'm getting the same "Undefined variable: default" problem as areikiera. Although at this point it's written out five times above the "Content," Behavior," etc tabs, but it used to replace the navigation.

The difficulties with setting default make themselves known in other places too: my dropdowns do not respond to my checking another radio button. In fact, they don't seem to change at all after initially setting them.

Oh, and I'm not running on WAMP. I mean, it's Windows, Apache, MySQL, and PHP, but it isn't the WAMP package. (Did I just give myself away as the biggest newbie?)

Any help is greatly appreciated!

As above, you need to have set up the SMTP configuration for your server correctly. Most people don't have a local SMTP server setup, and just leave the default values then since you don't actually have an SMTP server, you get an error when it tries to use it to send an email. (On a proper host the SMTP server should be setup, so this issue should disappear)
