    What IS the set-up for wp_mail?

    I know wp_mail has a backup setting to send out email if the SMTP server option is not set-up.

    The host I am on,, doesn't have a problem with standard email sends in various PHP email programs. However, if I want to enforce SMTP server utility with wp_mail?

    I read this in the ClassiPress included email plug-in:

     * Emails that get called and sent out for ClassiPress
     * @package ClassiPress
     * @author David Cowgill
     * @version 3.0
     * For wp_mail to work, you need the following:
     * settings SMTP and smtp_port need to be set in your php.ini
     * also, either set the sendmail_from setting in php.ini, or pass it as an additional header.
    So, David, just HOW do I follow these instructions literally?

    1and1 allows use of .htaccess for a lot of php.ini utilities, but also I can put a php.ini into my wordpress directory.

    And one information page at 1and1 suggests using IMAP with the following information----

    Outgoing Server: (port 25 or 587)

    if settings are done in the .htaccess file I am supposed to flag them first according to an online reference like this

    php_value upload_max_filesize 20M

    php_flag register_globals off

    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc on

    MY htaccess file for the WP install that houses ClassiPress reads as follows

    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /wordpress/
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /wordpress/index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    So, back to my question, Lord Cowgill, what ARE the wp_mail configurations suggested for letting wp_mail know the SMTP server AND Port?

    Thanks for your help!
