Can I use iPage to buy an apache server?

My first question is Can I use iPage to buy an apache server? Many thanks for any answer. My other question... OK, I have an Email issue with osCommerce, and I've been searching the forums for DAYS looking for an answer. The data is fragmented all over this forum and it's hard to even get TO it let alone fix a problem. So it seems there are many issues with Email functionality, so lets get it all under one roof! (makes sense, no?).

My problem is as follows (besides the forums being nearly unusable).

Sending emails from osCommerce is not happening. The iPage site has not sent even one email, ever (new installation) The email account is good and tested. I downloaded the test script and THAT sends no emails, which tells me I'm missing something VERY obvious. Has anybody experienced this?.

You betcha! but... you might want to make sure and wait for another person to confirm my answer as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the iPage guys because they can give you an answer better...

I've tried sendmail and smtp, neither works, and the test script fails to work as well. I think the test script overrides those options? I'm not exactly sure. I just know that it doesn't work, perhaps somebody could post a complete list of what needs to happen for email to function..

Spell it out line by line if possible. What needs to be set, and where it needs to be set. I'm sure this will be helpful for the MANY other people that hanve mentioned email issues as well..

How is your iPage site hosted, if it is with an ISP, make sure thay alow you to use sendmail. send me your url, and I will check it for you..

I have a leased server at interland in florida. Sendmail is running. That doesn't mean I have it configured correctly, so once again, if someone could please take a moment and make a list of everything involved in getting mail to work on this, it would be appreciated..

Specifically....

1) what has to be entered into osCommerce.

2) what needs to be done on the server side.

I would prefer to not have a bunch of "try this and try that", instead a list of what needs to be done from start to finish..

Thanks for your help so far, but what I really would like (and I'll bet others would too) is something that outlines the basic set-up, from there we can troubleshoot..
