I'm currently working on a very simple form that will automatically send a confirmation email to the address that's suplied in the form. Think a simple newsletter signup application. Before I upload everything to my remote host I want to check everything is working first by using the localhost server setup on my machine. Can somebody please help me configure it so that the php mail() will work from my localhost, or tell me how I can test the application before uploading to my remote host. I use a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.4.11. I have a standard php and apache setup. When I run phpinfo() sendmail_from has "no value", sendmail_path = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i", SMTP = "localhost" and SMTP port = "25".
Many thanks.
