MediaWiki, as it stands does not lend itself to easy configuration of SMTP mail
settings, especially where authentication (username and password) are required. In

servers are not available, a lot of current software allows for 'admin console'
management of remote server SMTP configuration. (such as an ISP's email account)

It would be extremely beneficial to allow for this type of setup in the initial
installation or in an post-install 'admin console' of some sort.

Set $wgSMTP if desired to use PEAR::Mail. See DefaultSettings.php for all
