PHP+Ubuntu Send email using gmail form localhost


Please do following steps to send mail from localhost on Ubuntu/Linux through gmail :-

For that you need to install msmtp on Linux/Ubuntu server.

Gmail uses https:// (it’s hyper text secure) so you need install ca-certificates

~$ sudo apt-get install msmtp ca-certificates
It will take few seconds to install msmtp package.

Now you have to create configuration file(msmtprc) using , gedit editor.

~$ sudo gedit /etc/msmtprc
Now you have to copy and paste following code in gedit (file you created with above command)

tls on
tls_starttls on
tls_trust_file /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

account default
port 587
auth on
logfile /var/log/msmtp.log
Don’t forget to replace MY_GMAIL_ID with your “gmail id” and MY_GMAIL_PASSSWORD with your “gmail password” in above lines of code.

Now create msmtp.log as

~$ sudo touch /var/log/msmtp.log

You have to make this file readable by anyone with

~$ sudo chmod 0644 /etc/msmtprc

Now Enable sendmail log file as writable with

~$ sudo chmod 0777 /var/log/msmtp.log

Your configuration for gmail’s SMTP is now ready. Now send one test email as

~$ echo -e “Subject: Test Mail\r\n\r\nThis is my first test email.” |msmtp –debug –from=default -t
Please check your Gmail inbox.

Now if you want to send email with php from localhost please follow below instructions:-

Open and edit php.ini file

~$ sudo gedit /etc/php/7.0/apache2/php.ini

Search sendmail_path in php.ini and edit as below

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: “sendmail -t -i”).
sendmail_path = /usr/bin/msmtp -t
Please check 3rd line carefully there is no semicolon before sendmail_path.

Now save and exit from gedit. Now it’s time to restart your apache

~$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Now create one php file with mail function from

Do test and enjoy !!
