You may see an error message on the next page, something along the lines of:
Warning: mail() [function.mail]: Failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port
25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in
C:\wamp\www\drupal-5.7\includes\common.inc on line 1979.
We don't need to worry about this error; it is just telling us that it failed to email the
administrator account password to us, which is understandable since we don't have
a mail server configured within our development environment. When we put the
website online in a live hosting environment we shouldn't have these problems.
The password that Drupal has generated for us is shown on the page with the error
message; we need to take a note of the password.
We also have an option of changing our account password on this page, and making
other changes to our account, including setting our time zone, and setting a signature
for our posts and messages.
