No, WP does not have an option to use an alternative to mail(), and thus a
few weeks back I ran into trouble installing it because I purposely left out
mail support in PHP. It would be nice if it were wrappered in if function
exists statements and if not, it tried to use an SMTP connection or one of
the PEAR classes that does mailing.
