1. Configure SendMail
2. Configure MercuryMail
3. Use Thunderbird or Outlook to read Emails.

Code: Select all
open xampp\apache\bin\php.ini

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"

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


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.


Good Luck

Follow the outlook wizard.

For outgoing and incoming POP3 use localhost or mail.domain.com and for username and password supply the username and password you used for MercuryMail User settings.

File -> Identities -> Add New Identity, that should start the wizard. But I recommend using Mozilla Thunderbird over Outlook.

Members and guest visitors to these forums should exercise extreme caution when using unofficial third party help sites. You should use the XAMPP help files and facilities available from the official ApacheFriends web site and from within the various configuration files in the form of item comments.

WOW that is so ironic IZZY, because you linked to unofficial help sites in this thread: http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?t=21045 such as http://www.lifehacker.com/software/emai ... 111166.php then after I posted you edited all your post to:
Members should be very cautious about using unofficial third party help sites and should use the XAMPP help files and facilities available from the official ApacheFriends web site.

This thread has been hijacked for obviously devious reasons.
but the fact is if you give members correct information then I would not have to correct you.

By mentioning that you are saying do not trust any third party sites, essentially your saying DO NOT trust http://www.phpfreaks.com/, http://www.devshed.com/c/b/PHP/, http://www.phpbuilder.com/ for php help because it is not the OFFICIAL php site, and don't trust http://www.apachelounge.com/ or any other apache help site because it is not the OFFICIAL apache website. This will also include Apachefriends because Apachefriends is a third party help site for Apache, MySQL, PHP, FileZilla, and MercuryMail which makes up the various components of XAMPP an Apache Distribution. If you want help with XAMPP then you should be posting at apache.org, php.net, filezilla.sourceforge.net, pmail.com/overviews/ovw_mercury.htm, and so on.

Seriously your posts like this are childish and getting very old, for a person your age I would have suspected more from you.

So in others words you should be saying: DO NOT trust http://xampptutorials.com because I have a grudge against WorldDrknss. I am jealous that he was able to provide a website consisting of Tutorials and Generators to make the installation of XAMPP go smoothly for everyone and for his superior knowledge of XAMPP, Apache, MySQL and PHP. :lol:

Yes you have more posts than me, but that is because I have several sites to manage, I works and I am a full time student. I do not have time to sit on my crack all day and wait for a new thread to appear to answer it.
Enjoy

99.9% of people use unofficially/third party sites each and everyday, but yet only one person on this forum will only make a note of that after I have posted. I do not see IZZY posting on other people posts saying do not trust third party sites. So to me this seems that jealousy is in play here.

At least for the people who use my site, I insure them the highest security possible, and I provide them useful and correct answers.

Best of luck to all fellow XAMPPERS
Thanks XAMPP-Dev Team keep up the good work.
This will be my last post at Apachefriends

sendmail_path = "D:/Server/xampp/sendmail/sendmail.exe -t"

; Force the addition of the specified parameters to be passed as extra parameters
; to the sendmail binary. These parameters will always replace the value of
; the 5th parameter to mail(), even in safe mode.
;mail.force_extra_parameters =


sendmail.ini:
Code: Select all
; configuration for fake sendmail

[sendmail]

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

smtp_server=mikzweb.dk

; the default domain for this server will be read from the registry

And in outlook ill do:
Mail: drizzie@mikzweb.dk
Pop3: Mikzweb.dk
smtp: mikzweb.dk

Accountname: drizzie@mikzweb.dk
Password: ******
