Got the Security Certificate installed. Now I need to enable PHP mail. I have a membership program that uses it to send emails. Can you help get PHP mail working?

Hi Larry

Windows does not have a Mail Server installed by default, this is why the PHP `mail()` function does not actually send mail.

You either have to setup a mail server, or probably your best option is to use something like phpMailer or swiftmail. Both are freely available and come with their own user manual

(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.1.3 32bit & 64bit)
<Apache 2.4.29/2.2.31> <PHP 7.2/7.1/7.0/5.6/5.5/5.4> <MySQL 5.7.19/5.6.39/5.5.28>
<MariaDB 10.2.14> <phpMyAdmin4.8.1> <MySQL Workbench 6.3.10>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
Get your Apache/MySQL/mariaDB/PHP ADDONs here from the WAMPServer alternate Repo
