Your ISP should provide an SMTP server you can use: for me, it's 
smtp.charter.net (being a Charter subscriber); it should be something 
similar for yours.  If your ISP doesn't provide SMTP, you can probably 
find an open SMTP relay on the Internet somewhere, though I wouldn't 
really recommend that if you can avoid it.  Setting SMTP_SERVER to this 
server and WEBMASTER to whichever e-mail address to which you want the 
e-mail to be sent should be all you need.
