Re: Authenticated SMTP Gateway
Not if on Windows and using the internal mailer (sendmail_path not set in
configuration). In that case, PHP talks the SMTP protocol directly to the
other mail program and it won't authenticate. If using an external mail
transfer program (sendmail) on Windows, or in any case on non-Windows, PHP
just calls that program to transmit the mail. So authentication is up to
that program - not PHP.
