Hello!

I'm working with killersites video tutorial and just turned to a little problem.
At the moment I have to work with email function. I am learning how to manage to
send smth to email adress.

Script that I wrote:

<?php

$words = " many words in this sentence...";
$result = str_word_count($words);
echo $result . "<br><br>";

$did_send = mail('kirsiskaspars@gmail.com','Killerphp.com Test Email', "The body message.");

echo " Email sent: ". $did_send;

?>


In the video everything based on this script works just fine, but
I have an issue which you can see in the picture (attachment)

I am a begginer in php, so really need your help.

Thank you!

In my experience, PHP's mail() function is something that is best used on an actual web server, not on your local machine running WAMP. It is possible to get the local server to send you emails, but it's a bit of a tricky process that requires editing your PHP.ini file with your SMTP/SMTP port details. If you aren't getting any errors other than that one, I think you can safely assume that the mail() function is working correctly, and you should receive email properly if you put the PHP file on an actual web server.
