Pop Before Smtp in Scripting Talk Posted February 11, 2005 Well, for mail clients they *can* It is possible for a server to make it so that you have to check incoming mail within a certain time frame before trying to send. And if you haven't, it won't let you send. I'm actually not sure if TCH is set up that way. But scripts are *definitely not* restricted by it. You could have a look at some of the form mail scripts (like dodos mail) or the open source boards (like phpbb) to see how they deal with it. =) I think that they do use PHPmail as opposed to smtp - but this is so far out of my realm of knoweldge that it's best I stop talking.
