If your IP has been blacklisted, SMTP from the same machine won't help much. But you can use SMTP from another machine if you'd like but you have to have a few extra things installed, primarily the PERL::mail addon.

a quick google search will get you the packages and the howto. If your PHP installation is hosted and they block any kind of local install (local meaning to your virtual host) then you're screwed. Otherwise, contact your system admin and have them try to get the IP address removed from the blacklists.

Well if you were using phpmailer I could help. That's easy to use and I know it works. Like he said in the post before. If your IP Address has been blocked. Then I don't know how your going to send messages unless you use another SMTP server. I would contact the SMTP server your trying to connect too and find out why your IP Address is on the blacklist and find out how to get it removed from the list.

2) If your running it from your localhost. There's lots of free POP3 and SMTP servers that you can download and install and use them to send messages.
