When you create a new user, depending on the configuration, PHPDevShell may send two emails:
- one to the system administrator
- one to the new user
To be able to do so, you must provide your local parameters. Go to

System Management -> System Admin -> System Settings -> Email Settings

Windows doesn't provide a mail sending server (aka smtp), so you must use an external one. It could be very different depending on your situation:
- if you are on a corporate network, your IT probably has one, so ask your administrator for the correct parameters
- if you are on a small network or at home, you can use your ISP server, ask your ISP for the correct parameters
- you can also use gmail if you have a gmail account

Please note that your connection to internet (whatever it's a corporate network or a home connection) is likely to filter out smtp connection except for the authorized server, so you must find out which are the correct parameters in your case. Also note that most smtp server require that you provide credentials (usually your email login + password).

As an alternate (and better) option, you can use a linux operating system which provides a smtp server locally.

Can you help with this problem?
