Sending virtual email with wamp server March 18, 2011

Posted by Tournas Dimitrios in Uncategorized.

Of course Linux is my prefered OS , even for creating an development environment for my web-applications . But many developers are still using Windowzz and  wamp for emulating an development environment . WampServer  comes with almost all a developer need : Apache, PHP and MySql. However it doesn’t come with any mail sending tool (the same case applies to other WAMP packages like KrasnalServ) . A nice solution to the pre-mentioned shortcomming of Wamp is Test Mail Server from ToolHeap.

This tool catches every e-mail you are trying to send from your PHP code, saves it on your HDD and then displays in your default e-mail client. Whole process takes a few seconds, because there’s no waiting for any e-mail server to deliver the message you sent.
