SMTP email problem with Hosted server

My web hosting provider has this restriction on sending Email messages from the website.
Use the PHP mail function and set the ‘mail from’ value using the following code - replacing with the appropriate email address.
$email_from = “”;
You need to add a fifth “-f” parameter to the sendmail function. This will set the name of the from address.
mail($email_to, $email_subject, $email_message, $headers, ‘-f’.$email_from);

Anyone know how I can get my Concrete5 to work within this system?
I assumed it would all be fine as my hosting provider allows installation with their own one click installer service,
Thnaks for taking the time to read this,

Hello Jon,

Have you tried just setting up email as SMTP? If they offer (SMTP) email service, I don't see any reason why it would not work.

Here is a guide I did on how to set that up:

I hope this helps,
