In linux
You should make sure that Sendmail Daemon are running on port 25 by typing:
nmap -sT localhost
,if not then type
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail start

For more information, type
rpm -qc sendmail

Hope that helps! I will help you as far as i can

be sure that you have the smtp server running when you are using the win2000

you can see if its running
by typing "inetmgr" in the run window

this will open the internet manager, here you can see if the smtp server is running.!

AND check for the configuration in php.ini
