    mail() function vs SMTP authentication

    Hi All,

    I need to create a send email functionality on my website. I have searched that in PHP, I can either choose to use a built in mail() function or using SMTP authentication methods. But, I still don't understand what's the differences. Why should I choose one way over another?

    Many Thanks,
    junyk

    As long as you're not sending lots of emails at once, mail() should be fine.

    Ok, Thanx And may I know how many emails on average are considered as too many for using mail()? (less than 10 or less than 50?)
