            subject - subject of mail.
            message - message to be sent.
            header - header of mail.

          You've to make following changes in your php.ini file to send mail.
                     [mail function]
                     ; For Win32 only.
                     ; http://php.net/smtp

                      The following php script is used for send mail:

<?php
   $to='example@gmail.com';         
   $subject='Send mail using php';
   $message='This mail send using php';
   $headers='From: guruparthiban19@gmail.com';
   $mail=mail($to,$subject,$message,$headers);
   if($mail)
   {
    echo'Mail send successfully';
   }
   else
   {
    echo'Mail is not send';
   }
