Hi guys, I have just recently started to use osCommerce & php. It seems to be running fine! But I need to know how to setup these things: my gmail e-mail address so when someone makes an account etc they will get an email. Also how can I personalize the shipping options? Cheers ;)

All of the above can be done throught the admin panel.

You get there by going to: http://my_domain.com/my_store_name/admin.

Substitute your domain name and your store's catalog folder name.

Have fun,

Ok the thing is I use a free webhost & they don't supply a e-mail address so I need to use my gmail one. Where do I enter all the settings etc? Where can I choose what shipping types I want e.g standard post etc?

Is anyone able to help me? Thanks
I answered your question above. Your free host has nothing to do with setting up your email address to work with your store. As long as it is a valid email address it will work.

Select "Configuration" from the first menu in your store's admin panel...

Select the "E-Mail Address" row and then click on the "edit" button to the right. Add your valid email address.

Now, in the far left menu you will see "E-Mail Options". Click on it and then make sure the bottom option "Send E-Mails" is set to true.

Do the above and you will be sending emails from your store.
