You can't send mail without a SMTP in local development!

Please can u help me to achieve this task... How to send mail in local development system in XAMPP.

1. Purchase a domain and use that to send your mail.
2. I hear, for example, if you have a gmail, you can use their smpt to send an email but it is not something I've done per se.

Two options:
1. Install a mail server. I think some people here mentioned Mercury for Windows.
2. Use PHPMailer (or a similar tool) and a GMail account for example. And yes, it requires recoding.
