I'm working on a module which sends emails from admin panel on some action. I want to test these emails on localhost. How can I configure my Magento 2.1 settings or add SMTP so that sends emails over localhost?


You can use the SMTP for this. And for SMTP configuration you can use any extension.


From this extension you can configure your SMTP detail in admin and based on that you can send email from local system
