Send emails from local WordPress setup using SMTP

While doing testing of WordPress in local system many times we need to do the email testing and we can't do it as we don't have SMTP server installed on local system. Without going to option of installing SMTP server on local it would be easier to use free SMTP server to send emails from local WordPress setup. I have already given instructions on how to send emails using SMTP server from localhost which uses phpMailer script. WordPress also uses phpMailer to send emails so we can do the changes in coding files to use SMTP and provide username and password. But that is not a recommended option. We can do it easily using WP Mail SMTP plugin.

PHP – Send mail from localhost using SMTP

When you setup apache in local system it won't by default setup SMTP server. Hence, if you want to send emails from local system, you will have to either set up SMTP server on your local or use external SMTP server. There are many service providers available who can give you SMTP, username and password to send email using their SMTP server. But it isn't very easy and straight forward to use SMTP in PHP. While searching I found PHPMailer script doing that very nicely and efficiently. You can download PHPMailer from their official site and read further to get more instructions on how to use gmail (or any other) SMTP.

BlueStacks Graphics Drivers out-of-date error fix

I have been using bluestacks for more than 6 months now. At that time my old iPhone didn't have latest OS and it didn't support new apps. So, to use WhatsApp I thought to give a desktop software try. That's when I found BlueStacks and started using it. I liked the way it handled applications and since then I have been using WhatsApp on BlueStacks.

Currently BlueStacks is running fine but for some unknown reason after a while it starts showing error "Your Graphics Drivers seem to be out-of-date. We recommend you update your drivers for optimal performance. Update now?" Clicking on "Yes" shows that it's updating driver but that process never completes.

Visit at BMW Experience Tour 2014 - Ahmedabad

Two days back, I got an email from IndiBlogger inviting to join the BMW Experience Tour 2014 at Ahmedabad. It got me intrigued and I thought to register to be a part of the event. So, I signed up at IndiBlogger Site and I was informed that I will get a confirmation call on my mobile. Next day I got a call from Karthik and he confirmed my entry. I was excited to see some old photos of the same event in other city (Photo Gallery) and was waiting to experience it on my own.

CabsInGoa.com review - Good & reliable service

We had a trip to Goa in November 2013. As it was my first visit to the place and we didn't use any travel agent, I booked flights and resort on my own. After getting flight and resort booked, one thing remaining was airport transfer. The resort offered to arrange it for extra 3000 Rs charges but I felt it bit exaggerated because distance from airport to resort was around 56kms and I felt it should be lesser than that. I searched for options on net and most of them were charging around same. Also the reviews of taxiwallah were more negative about charging very high and ripping off customers.
