I'm trying to set up a mail server using gmail. So far after modifying code in C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\bin\php.ini. It hangs the page and just loads the browser. I have read that it has to be used with PHPmailer but I don't know how to. Please help me how to set up mail server.

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/smtp
SMTP = smtp.gmail.com
; http://php.net/smtp-port
smtp_port = 465

; For Win32 only.
; http://php.net/sendmail-from
sendmail_from = myemail@gmail.com

Here is the link to PHPMailer:


Click -> Product -> PHPMailer -> Support

This will show you how to install PHPMailer.

I finally got it.

It's great to hear that you solve it! So you did follow the instructions!

Can you click Mark Question Solve on the bottom left corner so the thread is close and solve so noone can add stuff to it. Thanks.
