    Is there a way to configure wordpress to use an external mail server? If so, please tell me as it would help A LOT! Thank you very much!

    Must not be that important if you couldn't figure it out yourself by looking at the code.

    *sigh*

    A quick lookie at the code shows that WPMU uses a function called wp_mail. I can't do a search here for it but you may want to look through the code for that function.

    I'm sorry, I guess I missed that...

    I changed it to a mail server that I tested and it works with my mail client, but when, for example, I change my blog email address where it says "If you change this we will send you an email at your new address to confirm it.", but an email isn't sent...Am I not configuring something correctly here? I checked the junk boxes too... I sent a test email to the account and received it, and even when I directed my browser to the wp-mail.php file, it showed the message, but it's not sending any mail! In the Site Admin tab, I clicked blogs, then clicked Edit and entered in my mail server information in that page...

    Rubyducky, you could also try the ShiftThis SMTP Swift plugin. Note, I haven't tested it on wpmu

    Actually, I installed PHPMailer, and successfully sent out a test email using it, but wordpress still isn't sending out emails! I also tried it with this http://www.coffee2code.com/archives/2004/06/28/plugin-wpphpmailer/

    Any help here please??
