PHP Mail

Posted on 2013-06-20

Hello,

I am trying this PHP code to send email. In an earlier attempt I was able to send mail properly but that was setting up PHP.ini setting.

In this attempt, I am trying to setup my smtp settings in the email program itself.

Attached is the new file.

Thanks,

San.

Oh yes, I forgot to send the error I am facing:

Failed to set sender: noreply@kenhal.com [SMTP: Invalid response code received from server (code: 530, response: The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated.(#5.7.1))]

Here is the problem.

have you enabled ssl?

You have 'auth' => false, yet the server is requiring authentication.

If I make it true, I get the following error: (I've tried various combinations, getting different errors, so I'll keep informing you about the errors). In fact, the pwd is N0Reply (case sensitive), so it may become easy for you. On the other hand, I am running Xampp, and the PHP.ini and sendmail.ini is also existing there as it is. Here is the error with Auth=True.

authentication failure [SMTP: Invalid response code received from server (code: 535, response: authorization failed (#5.7.0))]

I've not enabled SSL. It is none in my Outlook settings where this mail is working fine.

Finally this code works fine, sending mail from website using PHP.

<?php
 include_once("Mail.php");
 
 $from = $_POST["FlFirstName"]." <".$_POST["FlEmail"].">";
 $to = "Info <info@yourdomain.com>";
 $subject = "Visitor Mail From ".$_POST["FlFirstName"];
 $body = $_POST["FlDetails"]."\r\n"."\r\n";
 $body .= $_POST["FlFirstName"]." ".$_POST["FlLastName"].","."\r\n".$_POST["FlEmail"]."\r\n";
 $url="http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
 $body.= substr($url,7,14);
 
 $host = "webmail.yourdomain.biz";
 $username = "site@yourdomain.biz";
 $password = "1234yourpassword";
 
 $headers = array ('From' => $from,'To' => $to,'Subject' => $subject);
 $smtp = @Mail::factory('smtp',
   array ('host' => $host,
     'auth' => true,
     'username' => $username,
     'password' => $password));
 
 $mail = @$smtp->send($to, $headers, $body);
 
 if (@PEAR::isError($mail))
   {
	   $message = "Your mail could NOT be submitted successfully, please send direct mail to...email@yourdomain.com";
   }
   else
   {
	   $message = "Your mail has been submitted successfully to...email@yourdomain.com";
   }
 echo "<script type='text/javascript'>alert('$message');</script>";
 echo "<script type='text/javascript'>history.back();</script>";
?>

Open in new window


Yes, you need to change Host, Username, Password in this code. And also use this PHP file as reference in your html code in 'action' in 'form' tag.

And the variables flEmail, flFirstName... are fields in html code, where in the form we accept user values in these fields. And then we transfer these fields to PHP file to process and send mail. These variables are used in Contact Us page in html file.

Thanks for support.

I see that you did enable the auth=true.  I'm glad that it worked out for you.
