     161== Q: My server doesn't send mail == 
     162Or I get the following error message (possibly translated in your local language): 
     163    * PHPMailer couldn't sent mail. Error was: Could not instantiate mail function  
     164 
     165 A: By default, wifidog uses PHP's mail() function through PHPMailer.  The message is actually wrong (nothing we can do about it, it's in PHPMailer). What it is supposed to say is that the call to PHP's mail() function failed, most likely because there is no mail transfer agent (MTA, such as sendmail or postfix) installed on your system. You can either: 
     166    * Install one, AND MAKE SURE IT CAN SUCCESSFULLY SEND MAIL. 
     167    * Change wifidog/config.php to use a SMTP server instead of mail()
