How to Send PHP Mail with Authentication

 

You can download a fully functional PHP Contact Form for your Website at: Contact Form with PHP Email to Send Email from your Website

Utiware's SMTP Email Servers require authentication before emails can be sent.  Please use the following PHP emailing script to see how to include SMTP authentication in your PHP code. Replace "username@yourdomain.com"with your valid email address that is hosted on our server, and use its corresponding password for authentication.

Our Email Servers will not send emails on behalf of random people, so this is why the Sender of the email must match EXACTLY the email address that is used for SMTP Authentication.

For the $host variable, please replace "smtp.YourDomain.com" with your own domain's smtp address.

 <?php

require_once "Mail.php"//Mail.php is already installed on the Web Server. You do not need to upload this file

$from = "Matha Sender <username@yourdomain.com>";
$to = "James Recipient <receiver@gmail.com>";
$subject = "Hi!";
$body = "Hi,\n\nHow are you doing?";

$host = "smtp.YourDomain.com"; //replace this with your domain's SMTP address
$username = "username@yourdomain.com";
$password = "Put your username@yourdomain.com password here";

$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))
{
   echo("" . $mail->getMessage() . "");
 }
else
{
   echo("Message successfully sent!");
}

?>
