E-mail on linux XAMP?

Postby rwalkerarn » 30. September 2008 12:36

I know the windows version has the "Mercury Mail Transport System" does the linux version have the ability to send e-mails?

If it does, does anyone out there know how I should setup my e-mail prefrences in joomla to allow the site to send e-mails out.

If it doesnt, does anyone know of a way to install another third party system that will sort my problem..

(i'm running ubuntu)

Thanks in advance :)

Every Linux can send mail (it's part of the OS).

XAMPP/PHP is just using the mailsystem from the OS.

In that case then, can someone help me configure joomla.

My options are:

Mailer - SMTP | Sendmail | PHP Mail Function <---- which one!?
Mail From - myname@mye-mailaddress.com
From Name - Myname
Sendmail Path - /usr/sbin/sendmail <-------- has defaulted to this
SMTP Authentication - Yes | No <----- which!?
SMTP Username - currently blank <----- if I need to use this where do I set it up?
SMTP Password - <----- if I need to use this where do I set it up?
SMTP Host <-------- has defaulted to this

That's now depending on what you want to do. If you want to send mails locally, Sendmail of PHP Mail Function is OK (in your configuration it's the same thing). If you want to send mails to outside, you should use your Mailprovider, in this case use this Settings:

Mailer: SMTP
Mail From: Your Mail Adress
From Name: Your Name
Sendmail Paht: nonrelevant
SMTP Authentification: Yes
SMTP Username: Your Username at your Mail-Provider
SMTP Password: Password for this Username
SMTP Host: The Mailserver of your Mail-Provider

Myself I migrated from Xampp for Windows to Ubuntu 8.04 (trying LAMPP now).

I REALLY liked Mercury Mail and have yet to find any mailer that I like as much. So I installed "wine" which runs Mercury Mail under Ubuntu without a hitch.
