Hi I'm running a php mailer email. When there is an SMTP error the error message is breaking my layout.

SMTP Error: The following recipients failed: testtest@email.com

Is there anyway to hide this message when the email executes? I would rather move it into a session object that I can call in different sections of my php templates.

Does it send any email, or do all addresses fail?

If I understand your question correctly, you are only trying to suppress the error returned when you use an invalid address.  Correct?

Yes, It is sending an email. I want to turn if off on fail, and dump it into a session variable.

Assuming you are doing a mail($to, $subject... etc... I think you can just change it to:

@mail($to, $subject.. etc...

Otherwise if you want to do fancy error handling, you could do something like what is outlined here:

I tried the stack overflow method. The error output worked for putting the error info a new object that I can call in the template. However the SMTP error is still appearing.

Other than commenting it out of the PHPMailer class is there another way to disable?

You might try experimenting with ini_set() and try either of the following:

error_reporting(0)
or
display_errors(stderr)

From what I've tried it the display_errors won't block any fatal script errors, such as the SMTP recipient error that PHP Mailer is generating.

For now I'll create another instance and comment out the echo in PHP Mailer.

$p = new PHPMailer();
$p->MailerDebug = false;

or just edit phpmailer.inc.php and change MailerDebug's default value to false
