I have looked through other posts to find this problem but it seems that no one else has had it.
I know some HTML and CSS and got the web programmer video set yesterday. After installing WAMP, most of it has been very smooth and accessible; when I tried using the "email()" function yesterday, I received errors.
I am running the latest php and everything else as I just got it yesterday and all other code runs fine.
The full error is:
Warning: mail() [function.mail]: Failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini
