I've just installed XAMPP on my windows XP machine for the first time (I used the ZIP install not the .exe, and ran the setup script). I'm pretty new to all this, and want to make sure I've got everthing working.
Ive started Mercury, Filezilla, MySQL, and Apache from the Control Panel and all of them say that they are running. Everything seems to be working OK. I can type localhost in the browser and I get the XAMPP welcome screen etc.
But, when I check Status I get everthing activated except IPv6 (which I believe is normal), and SMTP. I thought SMPT should be activated as I have Mercury allready running.
Could anyone confirm if SMTP being deactivated is normal, and/or explain why this is the case.
Thanks in advance
