Hi -
I have finished a new account login script and it all works.
However, I cannot be certain that the last action - sending an email, having been successfully added to the database - is working because everything is happening on the localhost via Apache which is on my computer. Obviously, I'm trying to send the email to myself but it isn't coming through. Is it possible to check the 'You have been successful email' via the localhost - can you send an email to yourself in this way ?
Thanks -
Songboy

No one has replied to this question. Maybe it sounds daft ! However, is it possible to test an email send without publishing your site and whilst working with Apache on localhost ?

Trial and error will set you free...I learned the hard way and now it's the easiest thing to do.
