I am trying to test PHP mail on my local host but to no avail. I have changed the SMTP in my php.ini file to that of my ISP. I have downloaded and installed both Mozilla's Thunderbird 3.0 as well as ArgoSoft MailServer free 1.0. I have Googled and Googled to cross reference teh various results I am getting. Thunderbird will not cooperate by insisting that it can't find the email settings (IMAP port =100, SMTP port =25 and email address = me@locahost), but according to a couple of results I found I didn't even need Thunderbird.
Help/suggestions/all that good stuff would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to all the knowledgeable people who respond to this.
