Definately the SMTP server's doing, I just checked.

I'm in the process of trying this, but the two docs I've found talk

$conf['mailer']['type'] = 'smtp';

$conf['mailer']['params'] = array();
$conf['mailer']['params'] = array('server' => 'smtp.example.com');
$conf['mailer']['params'] = array('port' => '25');

I don't have a horde.php in that directory.  I do have a conf.php that


[...leaving out some of the $conf lines...]

$conf['mailer']['params']['sendmail_path'] = '/usr/sbin/sendmail';
$conf['mailer']['params']['sendmail_args'] = '-oi';
$conf['mailer']['type'] = 'sendmail';

Which is what I think I need to replace with the smtp conf lines
above, but the fact that it's not the right filename and
the file starts off telling me not to change anything, USING
CAPITAL LETTERS, has left me a little reluctant to haul off
and change it here, since I've already managed to break it
once this week.
