I am using Magento version 1.9 on localhost. In project I want to send email on register. I have installed SMTP Pro. And configured my Gmail Account to send mail. But I am missing somewhere so I am failing to send mail. Anybody know about it please let me know.

  • Using magento 1.9 on localhost.
  • Installed SMTP Pro from ASchroder.com
  • Using Gmail Account to SMTP.
  • Are you sure your localhost is capable of sending emails? Do you have a SMTP server installed? Postfix, Qmail?

  • Using SMTP Pro with a configured GMail account bypasses the need for the localhost to send email (no exim, sendmail, qmail, postfix or other detritus) or have an SMTP server. It talks direct. Jul 14, 2014 at 22:14
  • Thanks for support. My Issue is resolved. Thanks once again.
