Have been away from BlueOnyx for a while but installed a 5106 version
(for now, 5107 won't install on this 386MB RAM box and I do not have a
better spare machine around).
Now I have the need to allow email from one of the two sites hosted on
that server via a PHP mail form.
The form, with spam checks and everything works fine, but the problem is
that the domain in question has their email serviced through Google
Apps, so I need to go through an external SMTP server with authentication.
Michael himself recommended PHPmailer a while back, which I found as
well while looking around for a better solution than the limited
standard PHP mail() function, though the official version apparently is
now on Github (https://github.com/Synchro/PHPMailer).
What would be the appropriate steps to get this installed on a 5106 box?
Any chance to just to a yum install or do I need to install this manually?
thanks for any useful insight,
