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.

https://github.com/emizentech/magento2-custom-smtp

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

If highest voted answer's repo doesn't show up than you can use below free extension by MagePlaza to send emails on xampp.

You can also use ssmtp. This can be configured to work with gmail.

In Gmail you need to configure your account to allow less secure apps.

To install ssmtp with stock Ubuntu enter:

sudo apt-get install ssmtp

Then you need a basic setup for your /etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf, for example:

#
# Config file for sSMTP sendmail
#
# The person who gets all mail for userids < 1000
# Make this empty to disable rewriting.
root=d.vader@gmail.com

# The place where the mail goes. The actual machine name is required no 
# MX records are consulted. Commonly mailhosts are named mail.domain.com
mailhub=smtp.gmail.com:587

AuthMethod=LOGIN
AuthUser=d.vader@gmail.com
AuthPass=Alderaan
UseTLS=YES
UseSTARTTLS=YES

# Where will the mail seem to come from?
rewriteDomain=gmail.com

# The full hostname
hostname=DeathStar

# Are users allowed to set their own From: address?
# YES - Allow the user to specify their own From: address
# NO - Use the system generated From: address
FromLineOverride=YES

root:d.vader@gmail.com:smtp.gmail.com:587

This will now enable you to have your emails work in Magento2 including for the newsletter send.

This approach also allows you to run a stock demo store on your localhost without any third party modules for SMTP delivery.

Configuration of your email sending can therefore be de-coupled from your Magento build making testing and deployment simpler.
