Winders doesn't come with an SMTP relay for sending e-mail like every other *nix distribution does.

Like the error message need to specify the SMTP server to use.

And even then, I've had problems w/ PHP delivering mail on Windows, my solution was to roll my own SMTP relay w/ php sockets... a hack, yes, but at least it worked! hehe

Windows actually does have a SMTP service, but it's not installed by default. Install it, configure it, and go from there.
