If you want to send emails with MAMP PRO you have to configure Postfix. You can do that by choosing Server -> Postfix. Although you do not have to do lots of configuration work there are some issues you have to know. Some ISPs do not allow sending emails via Smart-Hosts, others are limited to their own email addresses. This is why we want to give you an overview of ISPs including their Postfix configurations. As we don't have access to all providers we are encouraging all MAMP PRO users to help us with this. If you are using MAMP PRO with an ISP not noticed below, feel free to try configuring Postfix. The values provided below may help you to find the working configuration for your ISP. Note:
All values written in upper case are indicating that they have to be adapted.
Emails can send to all email addresses. You have to set up the sender email address to your MobileMe email address. Example: <?php $to = 'firstname.lastname@example.org'; $subject = 'Subject'; $message = 'Text'; $headers = 'From: ACCONTNAME@me.com'; mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers); ?>
The abbreviation "MAMP" stands for: My Apache, MySQL and PHP. With just a few mouse-clicks, you can install Apache, PHP and MySQL for Mac OS X and Windows!
