Send mail from Xampp

Postby Bosnjanac » 09. December 2015 22:55

Hi all,

I have Xampp on Windows Server 2012. I can`t send mail from php on address. I use corporate address and gmail account and there is no send mail.

I google it and find this tip:

in php.ini file find [mail function] and change
sendmail_from =
sendmail_path = "\"C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.exe\" -t"
Now Open C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.ini. Replace all the existing code in sendmail.ini with following code

Now you have done!! create php file with mail function and send mail from localhost.

I change everything and nothing. Simple no mail.

php.ini and sendmail.ini file you can find on

I just erase my mail and password.

Can you help me. Is there some new setting that I need to change.

configuration looks fine. (port I'm not sure)

Maybe there is a typemismatch in "" or "auth_password=my-gmail-password".
Have a look to "error.log"

in my config php.ini there is only sendmail_path defined.
