You need to configure the mail server. Basically, go to C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.ini and edit the settings under "A freemail service example" with the proper data, and under "Set a default account", replace "Mercury" with the name of the acount below "A freemail service example". This is an example file. The [user_name] and [password] must be written without square braces.

Thanks,i've tryed it but it give me this error:
PHP Warning: mail() [function.mail]: "sendmail_from" not set in php.ini or custom "From:" header missing in C:\Users\Jacopo\Documents\Tesi\Site\Site_014\register.php on line 590

My php.ini mail:

[mail function]; For Win32 only.; http://php.net/smtpSMTP = localhost; http://php.net/smtp-portsmtp_port = 25; For Win32 only.; http://php.net/sendmail-fromsendmail_from = mymail@live.it; For Unix only.  You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").; http://php.net/sendmail-pathsendmail_path = "\"C:\xampp\sendmail\sendmail.exe\" -t"; Force the addition of the specified parameters to be passed as extra parameters; to the sendmail binary. These parameters will always replace the value of; the 5th parameter to mail(), even in safe mode.;mail.force_extra_parameters =; Add X-PHP-Originating-Script: that will include uid of the script followed by the filenamemail.add_x_header = Off; Log all mail() calls including the full path of the script, line #, to address and headers;mail.log = "C:\xampp\apache\logs\php_mail.log"

I don't know why it gives me this error,i mean,i've remove ';' from the start of the line at "sendmail_from" so it should be ok...Any ideas?Thanks.

Could you post register.php?
This is the piece of code where i try to send email:
$msg = "Thank you for the registration.\n\n<b>Please reconfirm your email by</b><a href=http://localhost:8080		  	 /confirmMailRegistration.php?key=$username&code=MD5($password)>clicking here.</a>	 \nAlternatively, paste http://localhost:8080/confirmMailRegistration.php?key=$username&code=MD5($password) \n	 into you're browser address window to confirm that this is your email address.\n	 In order to reduce spam we require that all email addresses be confirmed before you can login to the site.";if(mail($email,"Confirm your registration.",$msg))	 echo("<META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh Content=0; URL=registrationSuccessful.php>");else	 echo("<tr><td colspan=2>error.</td></tr>");

Thanks.

Try putting quotation marks around the sendmail_from value.
If i do it i retrive error that said "invalid ... '"' on line ecc..."
Try looking for errors in the sendmail.log file, and commenting the SMTP, smtp_port and sendmail_port in php.ini
Ok,i've commented these lines,put this:
<?phpini_set("sendmail_from","allfreeware@live.it");ini_set("SMTP","smtp.live.com");?>

at the beginning of my file and now it say:

PHP Warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first in C:\Users\Jacopo\Documents\Tesi\Site\Site_015\register.php on line 594

line 594 is if(mail($email,"Confirm your registration.",$msg))Thanks.Ps: the error is the same even if i use phpmailer.
