According to the mail() manual page (http://www.php.net/mail), the PHP mail
functions use the UNIX program sendmail, which is not available on Windows.
Therefore, there are several configuration directives that you can set so
the function uses an SMTP connection instead (SMTP and smtp_port).

I believe there are libraries that can do this transparently for you, I know
phpBB employs a similar method.
