XAMPP – Sending test mails with MercuryMail

XAMPP comes with MercuryMail. To use it for sending test mails, you can do the followings:

1. Start Mercury Mail from XAMPP control panel.
2. Navigate to Mercury Mail folder in XAMPP installation (Most probably C:\Program Files\xampp\MercuryMail)
3. Double click on mercury.exe and Mercury window will be opened.
4. Go to Configuration -> Local Users
5. Add a user with password (Suppose sajjad)
6. Close this window.

That’s it.

Now you can send mail to sajjad@localhost orĀ sajjad@localhost.com (Mecury Mail should be started).

To receive mail configure outlook express with localhost as pop3 and SMTP server.

Hope these information will be helpful.
