Its a Joomla website. It send an update notification. Quite harmless, but for security and to prevent embarrasing situations with websites which are not online just yet, I want to make sure xampp is not sending any emails at all.

Probably Joomla does not use the standard PHP Mail API, therefore "disabled_functions" does not have any effect on Joomla. Ask Joomla support how to disable mail.

This cannot be done with a simple setting in php.ini, as there are thousand of ways how to send emails. You might configure a firefall to block all traffic on outgoing ports which are used for mails. Like port 25, 465 and 587.

You need to configure Joomla to not send mails.
Joomla uses its own PHP mailer class which is not effected by disabling mail function.
