Comment out these lines as you can only use smtp or sendmail not both.
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
; SMTP =
; smtp_port = 25

uncomment the sendmail_from line and add the email address your service provider gave you.
; For Win32 only.
sendmail_from =

configuration for fake sendmail


; you must change to your smtp server #add here what ever your ISP gave you for the SMTP server

but i don't know
what should i put here

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

auth_username=your username here #uncomment and add <<what should i put here
auth_password=your password here #uncomment and add <<also here

; if your smtp server uses pop3 before smtp authentication, modify the
; following three lines

;pop3_server= i have pop3 server they give to me but i they didnt give to me user name or password

I am using windows vista and i don't get it , what to put for those passwords and usernames

Just a note to say "Thanks!" for your post. I've been using XAMPP for years and never seemed to be able to figure out a simple way to get the email function to work, so I wasn't ever able to check email features on my test sites. Thanks to your well written and informative post, I can now use and test them.

It's great when we can help each other and you've definitely helped me with this. Perhaps I will be in the position to repay the favor some day!

I have followed this thread, and have "almost" solved my problem... but I get the following error log:

08-05-21 05:22:44 : Must issue a STARTTLS command first. 4sm2097976yxq.8<EOL>
08-05-21 05:53:00 : Must issue a STARTTLS command first. 4sm2144872yxd.2<EOL>

Checking in fakemail site, it says I need a couple of dll to use TLS... but it doesn't say how to configure fakemail to use TLS, once I have put the dll files in the right folder....
