Configuring Joomla email verification on XMAPP using Mercury

Running XMAPP as localhost.

After installing Joomla I tried to register but "instantiation" failed. Configured Mercury to bounce off an external SMTP which sends back to Outlook express. But Joomla doesn't connect with Mercury or the external SMTP.

I'm new to this and need a step by step configuration protocol.

I won't accept links to forums as an answer. I'm pretty good on The Google ;-) and often these forums have multiple answers - not necessary relevant to a localhost setup. Then again if you find an answer you know to be relevant then it shouldn't be too hard to cut and paste.

I have a webhost but I'd like to experiment on localhost so it is also not an answer to refer me to the webhost.

Thanks in advance for any help on this issue.

I found an alternative solution to registering Users. After logging in as Administrator I went to the User Manager and simply Enabled the User thereby avoiding the need to Authenticate by Email.

The link provided offered a different solution for Joomla 1.5.10 & 1.5.14(one uses SMTP and the other PHP Mail) but the current build is 1.5.20 (stable).

I didn't mention the build so I can't complain about that.

So I'm accepting the solution, though it's easier to use the administrative route to authenticate users than trying to set up email on a localhost.

On a localhost the easiest way to authenticate users (in my case an intern) is to log in as Administrator, open User Manager and authenticate the User.
