Hi there,

 

I'm new to php and I was wondering if it is possible to send the account activation email referred to in chapter 16 of the book using localhost and if so if anyone has any information on how to go about doing this.

 

I am using Wamp Server and Php MyAdmin.

 

Many Thanks

I'm not sure as i don't use WAMP. But i imagine its the same as XAMPP. If you look in your php.ini file you should be able to set the send mail settings. Just google it i'm sure there are tons of people blogging it. ;)

 

Let me know how you get on

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know WAMP doesn't come with a mail server? XAMPP comes packaged with Mercury Mail Server so might be easier to install that rather than installing Mercury or HMail yourself.

Thanks so much for sending that link. I had to play around with it to use it with my email provider but in the end..it worked!! It's made my week!

 

Thanks again!! Your help is much appreciated!

 

 

You can still fake it as far as i thought. Although I've never used WAMPP
