No, I didn’t install any SMTP functionality on the server. Like I said, I’m new to this and I guess I didn’t realize when I asked the question last night that I needed that functionality installed.
After looking through other posts and the code, I think I’ll be able to figure it out. It will work better for me and the nature of the website for the forum to not email the password, but to display it instead. So I am going to go that route. Sorry for any inconvenience.
