It looks like your system is not configured with sending e-mail via SMTP. This PHP function is made in assumption it is fully set up. Web hosting provider usually have it setup for your.

how I can configure with sending email via SMTP
my system has xampp
   
This is system-dependent; and there are different solutions for the same system. I don't know what is xampp. These questions are not about programming but about using available software and OS, address to documentation of the software (which is may be not installed).
