Doing this on MAMP

Has anyone done this successfully with MAMP? I had the same problem in a previous php course that involved sending email. I understood everything but, when it came time to send the email, I could not. I've tried the things that I've googled but nothing has worked.

Watch the whole course. They should tell about this later on.

You can't send an email from a local server. It won't work. You need to be on a live server, same as a user can't register on your website without internet connection even if you give him your local code.
