Drupal6 - questions

Just installed the Drupal6 appliance, and have the following questions/problems:

1. Email notification not sent: e.g on creating a new user in Drupal

2. I need to upload a contributed theme and place it in '/sites/all/themes/yourThemeNamee' , where do I find this.

Would appreciate the guidance,

Check your network connection

1) Maybe the email wasn't sent out because the appliance isn't able to reach the Internet. Try pinging (Google's DNS service).

2) The path you mentioned is in /etc/drupal/6.

Hope this helps!

Hello, I think I need to send e-mail out another port, but my service provider may not allow any SMTP through their router or whatever. I'm not sure. Do people send mail out alternative ports? I might have to go back to the module that uses Gmail. Thanks

PS - Do I have to turn off the mail, Postfix? I installed PHPMailer, but the site still is not sending out mail.

PPS - Can anyone help me set up Postfix to relay through my service provider? I just spent too many hours trying myself. I think something's wrong with a hostname somewhere. That and it wants to send a letter from www-data@my.domain to my Webin Postfix inbox.
