send mail folder missing in xampp

Postby JCHM2001 » 27. September 2015 00:36

I just installed XAMPP 5.6.12 and I am trying to send email thru php script but is being sent to my mailoutput folder. I did some research and need to edit my sendmail.ini file which is supposed to be located in the sendmail folder, however, the send mail folder is missing and therefore I cannot find the ini file.

Can someone point me in the right direction as to what to do to resolve this issue?

I am using windows 10

Thanks for any feedback that may be provided

There *should* be a folder c:/xampp/sendmail

Ask Bitnami whether it has been removed?!

In my XAMPP 5.6.12 installation the sendmail folder is still there.
To activate sendmail you need to change your php.ini file too. Search for "sendmail_path".

I'm using Xampp 5.6.3 along with Windows 8.1 and I'm facing the same issue: there's no sendmail folder in xampp. No folder, no files included. I wonder what's due to. And most of all if there's a way to fix it, because I can't erase all my files, databases and local sites by installing Xampp again.

I checked both zip versions of XAMPP 5.6.3 (full and portable):
sendmail folder is present. I don't know if the bitnami installer contains this folder too, or your OS or security software is blocking its creation.
Maybe you should give the zip version a try.

I changed to use XAMPP 5.6.12 and did as you had suggested. It works :) thanks
