[Mediawiki-l] Email platform questions

Slightly different question
In Joomla! I can configure email so it uses my Yahoo! smtp account for outbound email
That works a treat for authentication and relieves me of having to understand sendmail :-)
In Mediawiki the assumption appears to be that mail is working on the host server:
I can find very little documentation on the subject and what documentation there is does not directly answer my question, which is:
'how do I configure mediawiki to use a third party smtp mail service for outbound email?'

This isn't supported at this time, but if you hack around it can be made to
work. Ask the guys running wiki.creativecommons.org for their patch.
