I am new to PHP and I have an Apache server running on a Windows XP box hosting a small group forum with authentication. The website package I am using has the ability to send mail but I am assuming that this was written for a unix box. All this needs to do is send a email that says "Yes you are signed up". All the help i have seen on their site is for SendMail. Which i have come to learn is a Unix thing. I also need to send it through a google account which means i need to designate the port and password and such. I came across mention of using PHPMailer. But despite my best intentions I can't make sense of their install directions. I am used to just unzipping a package and adjusting a config file.. and things work.. what am i missing. Can someone help me with a step by step install instructions? With google would be even more of a bonus!
