Success with Sending email without a SMTP Server!!!!

This seems to work just great. I think it will solve part of my problem.

The other part is the reason I didn't use revMail -- I need to be able 
to send a file attachment OR I need to be able to send HTML formatted 
email. As far as I can tell, revMail doesn't support either of these 
options but I'm going to dig into the revMail scripts to see if they 
can be tweaked to send HTMl formatted email.

Even if that doesn't work, though, I have other applications for your 
wonderful script.


You da man.
