Firstly I have searched extensively for the resolution to this problem, however i've had no joy.
Yesterday I installed the firestats 1.3.6 plugin ( i know wordpress is not responsible for individual plugins but please bear with me) and after a few hours of working fine I suddenly received a white screen after making a post. The error message given was this:
The e-mail could not be sent.
Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function...
Now I searched on WordPress and other places and found that the most common resolution was to install an SMTP plugin. So to cut a long story shot, I did that but it didn't help, then I contacted my host and they have told me the following:
"The plugin replaces the wp-mail.php script. Please download a wordpress
install with the correct wp-mail.php and copy it over. This should
restore the correct functioning"
I just wanted to check whether this is the appropriate course of action to take? Also I'm using WordPress 2.2, should I overwrite it with 2.3?
I don't know how to overwrite without losing the content on my site but i'm sure i'll find that out vias a search.
Thanks for any help!
