SMTP mail command
I just started a new Yabb board. After a full day of downloading the software and installing it on the server at my ISP (I have a domain), and getting the software to run, I didn't know what to put in for SENDMAIL, therefore the board will not send mail and the person in charge of the board is using a Freeboard (ARGH) with ads and timeouts.

For a Linux install, what do I put in the Send Emails Using field?
And once I have that information... where is that darn field? I just looked for it, and I can't find it! ARGH!

(ADDENDUM: I found the field and edited my question accordingly)

Thanks for the help!

See this post in the YaBB Codex http://codex.yabbforum.com/YaBB.pl?num=1198643411

 On linux, most probably you will use Sendmail

Adin Center > Advanced Settings - Email Tab

Re: SMTP mail command
I called my webhost and got the path for the sendmail command... it now works... Smiley I'm a happy camper... now the crew of the SIMM is voting on whether to use Yabb or the Free message board (with ads and server downtime). I hope they make the right decision.
