This is the ultimate (at least for me! :]) solution to configuring mail sending in your XAMPP. Verified and confirmed that this is working. If you go through these steps and still have no results, I'm 95% sure, that problem is outside XAMPP or sendmail (i.e. something is wrong with your configuration). I hope, I don't have to remind you, that every wise guy uses XAMPP only for development purposes and never, ever as stand-alone, production, webserver!
Do not get confused! This article is about fake sendmail, a solution designed for development environments, like XAMPP, to mimic mail delivery subsystem for developers, that is found on production servers. This text has nothing to do with original sendmail, world famous MTA, started 1979 (25 years before fake sendmail!) and still widely used on production servers and anywhere else in hosting area.
