    I think EasyPHP is for Windows, so I think you will need an SMTP mailer for Windows. I don’t have any first hand experience with those, but I have heard about a couple:

    Also, instead of mailing the password you could just display it with the Instant Password plugin:

    Hi chrishajer,

    Thanks for the quik support and response.

    I have tried this and its working , but the problem is about email sending automatically when the user forgot the password and if he/she requests the pwd using the email id which is unique.

    So , Now my only problem is email is not being sent from my local machine which is connected with internet etc.

    Please help me :)

    Thanks,

    -Vikram.

    You’re using this on a local machine, but you have members using it who would require a password email?

    You might want to use this plugin to be able to send email using an external SMTP server:

    It’s difficult to test email on local setups sometimes. You should probably move your testing to your server as that will have a whole different setup, with it’s own unique requirements.
