AHA ...I found this in my website hosting service:

"The most common way to send email from your website is by using the PHP mail() function. PHP mail() is an easy to use email system built into the PHP programming language. It's the default setting for almost all applications.

However, PHP mail is severely restricted on InfinityFree. To prevent spam and other abuse, most messages sent through PHP mail are rejected by the mail system. In practice, this means you cannot use PHP mail on InfinityFree to send your email."


EDIT: How do i use the SMTP function with outlook.com email addresses???

Thanks!

I never used smtp I use to stay away from free host services they offer limited services and a real host does not cost that much.
