Looking for simple mail class

I am aware of many email classes like phpmailer and swiftmailer but these are all complex with many files.

I am looking for a simple PHP mail class that only uses sendmail (NOT SMTP) and fits in just ONE php file.

It should send proper headers and should guard against common attacks.

Any ideas?

I use phpmailer but my understanding is that you do not need the entire distribution.  I currently have 3 files and it works fine.  If you are just using sendmail then you can probably just use class.phpmailer.php and no other files.

Agreed, phpmailer is excellent, see this:

You can find full documentation anywhere. This is all i use to send emails.

(You do need a second file, class.smtp.php, that makes 2 file total)
require("class.phpmailer.php");
 
$mail = new phpmailer();
 
$mail->From     = "list@example.com";
$mail->FromName = "List manager";
$mail->Host     = "smtp1.example.com";
$mail->Mailer   = "smtp";
$body  = "Test EMail body <b>can be HTML</b>";
$mail->Body    = $body;
$mail->AddAddress("test@test.com");
$mail->AddCC("testcc@test.com");
 
if(!$mail->Send())
        echo "There has been a mail error";
