Hi all:

I _config.php y configure the mail in this way:

ini_set("SMTP", "");

Now i can send mails.
But it doesn´t send mails correctly because the mail goes to the spam folder in destination.
If I understand correctly SS uses the PHP mail function to send mails. And this function uses sendmail application.
The problem is that sendmail sends the mail directly to destination and not through the mail server. As a result, the destination mail server treats it as suspicious.
Do I forgot something in the setup?
If this is the only way to send mails, i would like to know how easy should be to substitute the standard mail function with PHP Mailer .
I think this is very easy to use and good product.

Thanks in advance and excuse me for my poor english
