I first tried searching here at apple.stack but couldn't find a solution that seemed to work for me, so I'm trying my hand at posting a question. I already spent a few good hours trying to make it work, since I overall would like to keep using MAMP (again, not MAMP PRO) instead of switching to another package that might give me more road blocks..
- I'm a total newbie to Apple's OS.
- I have recently moved to using a macbook pro with Lion OS installed for my PHP development.
- I had come to a point in my development where I now have to send mail.
- I created a gmail account since the project I am working on hasn't got a name yet so no domains have been purchased (meaning no other smtp server to use)
- I installed MAMP (not PRO) and have been programming on the macbook pro up to this point

Then after following the advice:
You may want to add: /usr/lib/php/pear to your php.ini include_pathI have modified:
include_path = ".:/Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.3.6/lib/php"

And still.. nothing.. roberto's post ended up giving me the following:
Warning: include(Mail.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/signupemailtest.php on line 24
Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening 'Mail.php' for inclusion (include_path='/usr/lib/php/pear') in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/signupemailtest.php on line 24
Which makes sense, because I can't seem to find the file
Has anyone experienced this and found a solution for it? I'm moving towards testing confirmation emails and signups, and this has killed my streak.. If I'm missing any other info please let me know. I haven't provided other code since I'm already stumped at the inclusion of
Mail.php and so far, I have been able to follow: http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=78799 properly.. but so that it doesn't go off-topic, I'd just posting info about getting the mail extension/pear mail set up. Thank you for any help.
