I would like to make it possible for PHP on UNIX to use the SMTP and sendmail_from options instead of sendmail_path.  This would allow me to relay outgoing mail thru my mail server, and remove sendmail from my web servers entirely.  It would also vastly simplify taking control of the From: header.

Hopefully the code to send mail thru a mail server on another host is already in PHP for use with Windows, and can be used even on Linux/UNIX depending on configuration settings.

Great idea.

When hosting multiple sites all chroot'd apache it makes it impossible to use qmail or sendmail etc.

Have an option to connect to a localhost port 25 would be a massive help.

In the year 2015 (the future, by any standard), there is a multitude of solutions to this in the wild, that are of such good quality, we would be foolish to compete.

I'm going to mark as closed, as this just is not necessary today.
