Best mailer to use for a website with PHP email forms

I have a website that someone made for me with a PHP mailer i guess in it. I just need something simple.. I just need the form to be emailed i guess to a local email address or something. I hope im explaining this right. Just a mail server that can store the email and the mail can be viewed from outlook. Then hopefully i can easily configure the php.ini which contains

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = localhost

; For Win32 only.
;sendmail_from =

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
;sendmail_path =

and be set.. Any suggestions on how I can go about doing this? Thank you.

No need to play with php.ini; php mail() does all stuff for you. Read the for more info on mail(). Please note that php.ini need to setup only if php itself failed to lcoate path to sendmail
