This works for me and should work for you: Use Fake Sendmail and a webhost mail server (i.e. – Godaddy, 1and1, etc.).
1.) Download the sendmail zip and extract it to C:\Wamp\bin\sendmail (for purposes of this example). http://www.glob.com.au/sendmail/sendmail.zip
2.) Edit C:\wamp\bin\sendmail\sendmail.ini and set the following to your mail server’s requirements (mine are below):
smtp_server=mail.domainname.com smtp_port=25 smtp_ssl=none ;default_domain=domainname.com firstname.lastname@example.org auth_password=smtppassword ;pop3_server= ;pop3_username= ;pop3_password= force_sender= email@example.com ;force_recipient= hostname=domainname.com
3.) Set the path of sendmail.exe in your php.ini file.
[mail function] ; For Win32 only. SMTP = ; For Win32 only. sendmail_from = ; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i"). sendmail_path = "C:\wamp\bin\sendmail\sendmail.exe -t"
4.) Restart Wampserver.
You might have success using Gmail, but there are a few extra tweaks to make it work. I prefer using the mail server of the webhost where I upload my code.
