Does sendmail works without Exim?

In order to use sendmail or mail() function to send emails via the web-sites, do i need to install Exim MTA?

    Sendmail and Exim are both MTAs (Mail Transport Agents) so I'm not sure I understand the question here?

    To be able to use the PHP mail() function you would need to have whichever flavor of MTA you choose installed on your server (Exim, Sendmail, Postfix, qmail, etc).

  • Additionally to what meaton mentioned you could also use PHPMailer, which supports direct SMTP connections.
