Since I couldn't get email to send through PHP via SMTP by making changes to my php.ini and sendmail.ini, I decided to setup PHPMailer.
After the install, I was able to successfully receive the test mail from PHPMailer BUT I'm not sure what all I need to do to get the email to send properly via my send.php code.
** I shouldn't have to have the form setup in the PHPMailer folder to work properly - right?
My error messages:
Warning: require(class.phpmailer.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\transferform\send.php on line 3
Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required 'class.phpmailer.php' (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\PEAR') in C:\xampp\htdocs\transferform\send.php on line 3
Not sure what PEAR has to do with PHPMailer. I have PHPMailer installed in htdocs\PHPMailer
** I tried to add the following statement
//Top of my send.php code:
$mail = new PHPMailer();
$mail->IsSMTP(); // telling the class to use SMTP
$mail->Host = "IP Address"; // SMTP server
//bottom of code:
$success = mail( implode(',', array( $R_email, $S_email )), $subject, $body, $headers, '-f [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email]' );
echo 'Thank you, your request has been sent!';
** As a test, I copied class.phpmailer.php into my folder that contains my html form and send.php files and I didn't receive any error messages but I also didn't get the email. ARRRGGGHHH...
