Not able to send emails from phplist on localhost

Hello Everyone,

I have installed phplist on my laptop locally and I am trying to use as smtp server for sending emails. I have done necessary changes in config.php as well, however when I am trying to send am email it is showing error as “sending email failed”.
So I am not able to send any email . Please help if how to use Google/Gmail smtp? or is there any other way for sending emails from phplist?

In the logs it is showing error: “Error sending email to Invalid address: (From): root@localhost”

Thanks in advance!

Hello ,

I have tried with smtp relay also however getting same error - “Error sending email to Invalid address: (From): root@localhost”
25 number port is already allowed on SMTP server.
Please help so that I am able to send the email from phplist.
IS it possible to send email without adding username password (for SMTP) in config.php fie?
