Attempted to installed Net_SMTP via "PHP Pear Packages", but when I hit the install button, I get an error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '(', expecting '}' in /usr/local/lib/php/PEAR/Installer.php on line 811

It would seem that PEAR package installation is broken...

Sorry for the problems with the installation. Typically loading PEAR (PHP Extensions and Applications Repository) is straightforward, however, there may occasionally be problems like this. In order to fix it, you would need to have our Systems team fix or manually install it. I will create a ticket for you in order to have it fixed immediately after this reply.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.

OK, when would I expect to see this done? And it is it clear which account this is to be done on?
