sending PHP mail from my laptop?

P: n/a
I can set the host and port, but I don't see that there is anywhere to specify
the username and password for an email account on a remote server.

Is that do-able?

Not with the mail command.

However, the PHPMailer class as Micha suggests can handle such things
(and more) for you.

yes, thanks, easy to use.

However, to enable SSL, I had to add to my php.ini:
extension=php_openssl.dll

and also to place a copy of that dll into the .../ext directory. It's
apparently already finding libeay32.dll because my system path still points to
the old PHP installation
