You can send mail from localhost with sendmail package , sendmail package is inbuild in XAMPP. So if you are using XAMPP then you can easily send mail from localhost.
for example you can configure
c:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.ini for gmail to send mail.
extension=php_openssl.dll and remove the semicolon from the beginning of that line to make SSL working for gmail for localhost.
in php.ini file find
[mail function] and change
SMTP=smtp.gmail.com smtp_port=587 sendmail_from = [email protected] sendmail_path = "\"C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.exe\" -t"
C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.ini. Replace all the existing code in sendmail.ini with following code
[sendmail] smtp_server=smtp.gmail.com smtp_port=587 error_logfile=error.log debug_logfile=debug.log [email protected] auth_password=my-gmail-password [email protected]
Now you have done!! create php file with mail function and send mail from localhost.
PS: don't forgot to replace my-gmail-id and my-gmail-password in above code.
Also, don't forget to remove duplicate keys if you copied settings from above. For example comment following line if there is another sendmail_path :
sendmail_path="C:\xampp\mailtodisk\mailtodisk.exe" in the php.ini file
Also remember to restart the server using the XAMMP control panel so the changes take effect.
For gmail please check https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255 to allow access from less secure apps.
To send email on Linux (with sendmail package) through Gmail from localhost please check PHP+Ubuntu Send email using gmail form localhost.

In XAMPP v3.2.1 for testing purposes you can see the emails that the XAMPP sends in XAMPP/mailoutput. In my case on Windows 8 this did not require any additional configuration and was a simple solution to testing email
