Mailing Script with External Server

When connecting to an external server such as GMail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. using a mailing script in Vodien Shared Server, Outgoing Mail Server settings must be authenticated and should only use the port 587 for security and privacy purposes.

Sample of Mailing Script:

$mail = new PHPMailer(); // create a new object
$mail->IsSMTP(); // enable SMTP
$mail->SMTPDebug = 1; // debugging: 1 = errors and messages, 2 = messages only
$mail->SMTPAuth = true; // authentication enabled
$mail->SMTPSecure = ‘ssl’; // secure transfer enabled REQUIRED for Gmail
$mail->Host = “smtp.gmail.com”;
$mail->Port = 587
$mail->IsHTML(true);
$mail->Username = “email@vodien.com”;
$mail->Password = “password”;
$mail->SetFrom(“example@gmail.com”);
$mail->Subject = “Test”;
$mail->Body = “hello”;
$mail->AddAddress(“email@vodien.com”);

if(!$mail->Send()) {
echo “Mailer Error: ” . $mail->ErrorInfo;
} else {
echo “Message has been sent”;
}
