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 7 Pro 32bit) (Wampserver 3.0.6 32bit)
<Apache 2.4.23/2.2.31> <PHP 7.1.2/7.0.16/5.6.28/5.5.38/5.4.45/5.3.29> <MySQL 5.7.10/5.6.17/5.5.28>
<MariaDB 10.1.21> <phpMyAdmin4.6.5.2> <MySQL Workbench>
