Hello,I have some doubt regarding the use of php mail function.I need some more elaboration on the following point you have mentioned in the Note below.

Note: For the mail functions to be available, PHP requires an installed and working email system. The program to be used is defined by the configuration settings in the php.ini file. Read more in our PHP Mail reference.
This note was taken from"PHP Mail Function"subtopic from the tutorial posted in the site.Thank you.

Only mail servers can send mail, that's what a mail server does. PHP can connect with most mail servers in various ways and deliver the mail for the server to send. It's the mail server's responsibility to actually send the mail, PHP just gives the mail to the server for delivery. You don't necessarily need a mail server installed on the same machine as the web server, PHP can connect to any remote mail server that allows those connections.
