Setting up mail service in WAMP

The first time I found this article that helped me. All I needed was this line

sendmail_path = C:wampbinsendmailsendmail.exe -t

The second time I needed the sendmail.exe program and I followed this article.

Here is another article that helped on my second install, but used Gmail. This was being blocked by my internal firewall for using port 465.

The winner is this set up. It uses my Godaddy email account and port 80.

Thanks to all those other web developers out there for posting their findings.

When using GMail to set this up you will to “turn on” their “use less secure app” setting. Log into your Google account and then Google “use less secure app” and it should link you to the page to turn this on.

I hope this helps someone else out there….
