I'm finding to proper information about how to send email from localhost WAMP. And how to get authorize to send email from particular authorize email address to send any other email address.

How to configure this whole step explain me details, I already visit here some Stack Overflow answer as well as blog post but all are very confusing and old dated so it's may be possible to not working. So i need Stack Overflow users help. Thank you.



Configuring a working email client from localhost is quite a chore, I have spent hours of frustration attempting it. At last I have found this way to send mails (using WAMP, XAMPP, etc.):

Install hMailServer

Configure this hMailServer setting:

  1. Open hMailServer Administrator.
  2. Click the "Add domain ..." button to create a new domain.
  3. Under the domain text field, enter your computer's localhost IP.
    • Example: is your localhost IP.
  4. Click the "Save" button.
  5. Now go to Settings > Protocols > SMTP and select the "Delivery of Email" tab.
  6. Find the localhost field enter "localhost".
  7. Click the Save button.

Configure your Gmail account, perform following modification:

  1. Go to Settings > Protocols > SMTP and select "Delivery of Email" tab.
  2. Enter "" in the Remote Host name field.
  3. Enter "465" as the port number.
  4. Check "Server requires authentication".
  5. Enter your Google Mail address in the Username field.
  6. Enter your Google Mail password in the password field.
  7. Check mark "Use SSL"
  8. Save all changes.


If you want to send email from another computer you need to allow deliveries from External to External accounts by following steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Advanced > IP Ranges and double click on "My Computer" which should have IP address of
  2. Check the Allow Deliveries from External to External accounts Checkbox.
  3. Save settings using Save button.

Most local boxes with Windows don't come with a SMTP server. You could use an external SMTP server and configure it in your php.ini file, but SMTP authentication is not possible.

I recommend you to use PHPMailer, is a simple and flexible PHP Class, that can use a SMTP server with authentication. It is also more secure than using bundled PHP mail() function.

The best (and easiest) way is to use an Intent:

Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL  , new String[]{""});
i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "subject of email");
i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT   , "body of email");
try {
    startActivity(Intent.createChooser(i, "Send mail..."));
} catch (android.content.ActivityNotFoundException ex) {
    Toast.makeText(MyActivity.this, "There are no email clients installed.", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

Otherwise you'll have to write your own client.

You can also look at this answer specially if you are now using WAMPServer 3 or greater, for a simple clikc and go way to create Virtual hosts.

Actually this change was intended by the WAMPServer developers and for a good reason.

There is a problem using the localhost/project1 url and the default WAMPServer DocumentRoot in that it causes problems for some frameworks and WordPress type environments, as well as your own code if you are using code which depends on knowing anything about the server environment.

The correct solution is to create Virtual Hosts for all your projects even those that you store in the wampwwwproject1 style folders.

When doing that the DocumentRoot is wampwww and that is what causes these problems.

These tools expect the DocumentRoot to be the root of the site i.e. wampwwwproject1 so that when they use PHP variables like


they get the correct answer i.e. the answer they would get on a real live server hosting just that site.

So using the localhostproject1 style url would mean these variables would return

$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] = localhost
$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] = localhost
$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] = C:/wamp/www

When they should return

$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] = project1
$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] = project1
$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] = C:/wamp/www/project1

So what you should do to make the My Projects menu work and reduce your pain in copying sites to live servers is:

Create an entry in the HOSTS file for each project like so and remember to create one for access via IPV4( and one for access via IPV6 (::1):- localhost project1

::1 localhost
::1 project1

Remember to refresh the Windows DNS Cache after any change to this file like so :-

Start a command window using Run as Administrator and run :-

net stop Dnscache
net start Dnscache

Now you must create a Virtual Host definition, so edit the wampbinapacheapache2.4.9confextrahttpd-vhost.conf file ( apache versions may differ )

Delete the default stuff in there the first time you do this. And then create your Virtual Host definitions like so :-

# Use name-based virtual hosting.
# This next line is not required if you are using Apache 2.4.x and should be deleted
NameVirtualHost *:80

## should be first so the wamp menu page loads and is the default site
## should also never be changed from only allowing access from the local machine
## for a bit of extra security from casual ip address probing
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "C:/wamp/www"
    ServerName  localhost
    ServerAlias localhost
    <Directory  "C:/wamp/www">
        AllowOverride All

        <IfDefine APACHE24>
            Require local

        <IfDefine !APACHE24>
            Order Deny,Allow
            Deny from all
            Allow from localhost ::1

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "C:/wamp/www/project1"
    ServerName  project1
    ServerAlias project1
    <Directory  "C:/wamp/www/project1">
        AllowOverride All

        <IfDefine APACHE24>
            Require local

        <IfDefine !APACHE24>
            Order Deny,Allow
            Deny from all
            Allow from localhost ::1


Now you need one more change, you must uncomment the line in httpd.conf that includes the above file we have just changed. So edit the httpd.conf file, use the wampmanager menus to do this as it ensures you edit the correct file.

Find this line #Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf and remove the comment # symbol from the beginning of the line like so :-

Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

Now of course you will need to restart Apache so that it picks up your configuration changes.

If Apache does not restart, you probably made a mistake in the config, to find out what is wrong try this.

Open a command window and CD into the wampbinapacheapache2.4.9bin folder.

Then run this :-

httpd -t

If the error is in httpd.conf or the httpd-vhost.conf files it will tell you the error and also give you the line number to make finding the error very easy.

Skype reserves port 80 for its incoming connection which conflicts with WAMP, so simply configure Skype to use another port by doing the following:

In Skype go to Tools|Options|Advanced|Connection uncheck the option --> Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections, that's it

For this change to take effect restart Skype and Restart all services on WAMP by doing the following:

Left-click WAMP tray icon > Restart All Services"

Now Wamp and Skype can co-exist together, hope this solves your problem!!
