To set up mail in XAMPP locally, you can use a combination of services such as using a local mail server, configuring sendmail with XAMPP, or using a third-party email testing tool. Here are the steps to set up mail in XAMPP locally using a local mail server:

  1. Download and install a local mail server such as MailHog or MailCatcher. You can find these tools easily online and they are often lightweight and easy to set up.
  2. Configure your local mail server with XAMPP. For example, if you are using MailHog, start the MailHog server and access the MailHog web interface to monitor incoming emails.
  3. Adjust the PHP configuration in XAMPP to use the local mail server. You can do this by editing the php.ini file located in the php directory of your XAMPP installation. Look for the SMTP and smtp_port settings and set them to the values provided by your local mail server.
  4. Restart the Apache server in XAMPP to apply the changes.
  5. Test your setup by sending an email from your local application. If everything is configured correctly, you should see the email appear in the inbox of your local mail server (e.g., MailHog).


By following these steps, you can set up mail in XAMPP locally using a local mail server. Remember to adjust the configuration according to the specific local mail server you choose to use.
