My email server sucks.

Before I start this blog post, I want to say something completely un-related:  I switched to PHP5 today.

Ok, so I tested out a new contact form that I’m building and…  15 minutes later I get the email in my inbox.  Which means that if I’d used Google’s GMail servers to send messages, I’d be saving 15 minutes of (what I hope is) waiting in a line for my message to be sent.

I was searching around for a way to use SMTP with my PHP configuration, and I found this.  From what I have figured out so far, it’s the perfect addition to my contact form.  I was using the contact form by Nate Dentzau, but with this new PHP class, it looks like I’m going to be able to make my own!
