How to test sending emails when in localhost?


Recommended Posts

Have a mail server on localhost.

On Debian/Ubuntu, that's none sudo apt-get install postfix mailutils This brings up a configuration screen on the terminal where the command is issued. Choose local for the type of installation and defaults for everything else. Having this done, one can use mail on the command line to send and receive mail already. PHP should pick it up as well. Getting a graphical mail client into reading local mails is a bit more complex, described e.g. here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/2261/how-are-administrators-supposed-to-read-roots-mail
