Sending auth email

P: n/a
Do I need some module to send emails with php or is there something built
into apache that does this? I want to send some email authentication emails
but not sure if I have to have some type of email host(which I don't on my
web server).

I assume its going to be impossible to do since I have no mail server to
handle the transactions? I don't want to use a remote server either as its
not that big a deal.

Thanks,
Jon

If you don't have a MTA (Mail Transfer Agent) on your server and don't
want to use a remote one, you can't send email. You need access to one
somewhere!

Apache is a web server - not an MTA.

But that doesn't make it an MTA.
