I'm using windows 7 and wamp server on my computer. I want to send email from my local host and i write the php code like the following

<?php
    $to = 'dagtade@gmail.com';
    $subject = 'test_subject';
    $message = 'test_message';
    mail($to,$subject,$message);
?>

the above code neither displays error message nor sends the email to dagtade@gmail.com. Is there any one who can help me?
thank you for your help.

WAMP does not include a mail server. Without it, you cannot send emails out. If you really need this, you can have a look at Mercury. Another option would be to use a class like PHPMailer, so you can use your gmail account to send emails.
