PHP's mail() can't do SMTP AUTH.  If you want to use SMTP AUTH with PHP,
you've got to use one of the email sending classes, like PEAR's Mail
which is included with PHP.

Yep, you need something.

If you want to force your users, disable the mail() function by
modifying php.ini and adding "mail" to the "disable functions" list.
You won't need the mail() function for sending mail via SMTP.

Besides, the Mail class provides your users with far more flexibility
then plain mail().
