    Is it Possible to Send a Test Email from Localhost to my yahoo email?

    laxmidi Level 1



      I'm trying to set up a Flex e-mail form, but I'm not having a lot of luck. I followed the tutorial in RIA Codes, www.riacodes.com/flex/create-an-email-form-in-flex-with-php/ , but I couldn't get it to work.


      I saw another tutorial, which suggested first testing whether your server will allow you to send e-mail. So, I put this php file in my webroot


      mail("joeBlow@yahoo.com","test","Ok, it works"); 


      and then opened it in my browser. Unfortunately, no e-mail was sent to my yahoo account.


      (joeBlow@yahoo.com isn't my actual e-mail address).


      Should the above file run okay on my localhost?  Is there some kind of setting that I need to change?


      Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?


      I'm on a Mac running MAMP and Flex Builder 3.


      Thank you!
