By default, it just calls PHP's built in mail() function, so if your
machine and PHP are configured properly, it should work fine.  I recently
added some diagnostics, so now if there is a problem, it will display an
error message, but that hasn't been released yet, so in the meantime it
will say the email was sent, even if it wasn't.
