Hi,

Searching forum (section XAMPP for Windows):

http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopi ... t=sendmail

Can configure your SendMail in XAMPP to send emails with PHP.

Regards,

I've read this and it've made me a lot more confused. another server? sendmail.ini?
What do I need to do so I'd be able to send mail with mail function? :?:
Do i just need to configure sendmail.exe? that's all? No stmp server?
help :(

Use MercuryMail and SendMail together:

MercuryMail Configuration:
Code: Select all
In this tutorial we will show you how to configure mercurymail so that you can receive and send emails from your website.
Lets begin:
Open up MercuryMail and click on configuration and then go to Protocal Modules here we will only check the protocals that we need. The following should only be check:
-MercuryS SMTP Server
-MercuryP POP3 Server
-MercuryC SMTP relaying client
-MercuryD distributing POP3 client
-MecuryI IMAP4rev1 Server
Restart MercuryMail
Once back in mercurymail click on configuration and then go to MercuryC SMTP client and fill in the following information.
Smart host name: smtp.somedomain.com <-your isp smtp server should go here, if you do not know it you can use the services from bluebottle.com
Username: isp username or other mail service username
Password: isp password or other mail service password
then click on save once you have those fields conpleted.
Click on configuration and go to Mercury core module and click on the Local domains tab, then click on add new domain, then add your domain to both the boxes and click on. Next we will add which users will have an email account on your server and to do this click on configuration then go to Manage local users here you can edit, delete, or add users.


open xampp\apache\bin\php.ini
Code: Select all
Change this:
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = localhost
smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
;sendmail_from = me@example.com

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
;sendmail_path = "C:/xampp/xampp/sendmail/sendmail.exe -t"

to this:
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
;SMTP = localhost
;smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
;sendmail_from = me@example.com

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
sendmail_path = "yourxampppath/sendmail/sendmail.exe -t"


Open SendMail.ini
Code: Select all
then go to your sendmail folder and open sendmail.ini and make it look similar this:

; configuration for fake sendmail

[sendmail]

; you must change mail.mydomain.com to your smtp server

smtp_server=localhost

; the default domain for this server will be read from the registry
; this will be appended to email addresses when one isn't provided
; if you want to override the value in the registry, uncomment and modify

;default_domain=local

; log smtp errors to error.log (defaults to same directory as sendmail.exe)
; uncomment to enable logging

;error_logfile=error.log

; create debug log as debug.log (defaults to same directory as sendmail.exe)
; uncomment to enable debugging

;debug_logfile=debug.log

; if your smtp server requires authentication, modify the following two lines

auth_username=yourusername
auth_password=yourpassword
; if your smtp server uses pop3 before smtp authentication, modify the
; following three lines

;pop3_server=
;pop3_username=
;pop3_password=

; to force the sender to always be the following email address, uncomment and
; populate with a valid email address. this will only affect the "MAIL FROM"
; command, it won't modify the "From: " header of the message content

;force_sender=me@localhost

; sendmail will use your hostname and your default_domain in the ehlo/helo
; smtp greeting. you can manually set the ehlo/helo name if required

;hostname=localhost


For better security use hmailserver.
hmailserver + clamwin + assp (Mail Server, Virus Protection, Spam Protection)
