As of version 4.0.6, PHP's mail() function library does not enable you
to send mail through an SMTP server which requires authentication.  
Therefore, you will have to use PHP's socket functions to accomplish
this task.

php mailer ( http://phpmailer.sourceforge.net/ ) supports this.  full documentation is available on their site.  you can also find some similar already made classes on phpclasses.org or freshemeat.  i have never looked into how phpmailer accomplishes this to explain it, but i would expect it is through socket connections.

hope this helps
