Use customize to change your mail sending options to use
"smtpmail-send-it" instead of "sendmail-send-it", and set the other
smtpmail options appropriately for your ISP.

This is deliberate.  fakemail never worked on Windows, so by installing
it in previous releases we were just fooling users into thinking they
could send mail from Emacs out of the box, since it would fail silently.
