    I do not know of any mail servers written in PHP. PHP has the mail() function and there are mail classes (eg. PEAR), but PHP is itself not the mail server. PHP sends the information to the mail server. As many hosts will not be pleased if you send mass emails and stress their resources, it is best to get a seperate email server. AFAIK, you then need to configure php.ini so PHP will use it.

    From http://us3.php.net/function.mail
    Note: It is worth noting that the mail() function is not suitable for larger volumes of email in a loop. This function opens and closes an SMTP socket for each email, which is not very efficient.
    For the sending of large amounts of email, see the » PEAR::Mail, and » PEAR::Mail_Queue packages.
    Although if you Bcc: it may help some.
