The SMTP mail settings can be configured from “php.ini” file in the PHP installation folder.
Find “mail function” in php.ini file.
Remove the semi colons before SMTP and smtp_port and set the SMTP to your smtp server and the port to your smtp port. Your settings should look as follows
SMTP = smtp.example.com smtp_port = 25
Note: The SMTP settings can be gotten from your web hosting providers.
If the server requires authentication, then add the following lines.
auth_username = email@example.com auth_password = example_password
Save the new changes. Restart Apache server.
Php Mail Example
Let’s now look at an example that sends a simple mail.
$to_email = 'name @ company . com'; $subject = 'Testing PHP Mail'; $message = 'This mail is sent using the PHP mail function'; $headers = 'From: noreply @ company . com'; mail($to_email,$subject,$message,$headers);
