Send Email from a PHP Script Using SMTP Authentication

To connect to an outgoing SMTP server from a PHP script using SMTP authentication and send an email:

Adapt the example below for your needs. Make sure you change the following variables at least:
* from: the email address from which you want the message to be sent.
* to: the recipient's email address and name.
* host: your outgoing SMTP server name.
* username: the SMTP user name (typically the same as the user name used to retrieve mail).
* password: the password for SMTP authentication.

require_once "Mail.php";

$from = "Bill Sender ";
$to = "Ninad Recipient ";
$subject = "Hi!";
$body = "Hi,\n\nHow are you?";

$host = "mail.example.com";
$username = "smtp_username";
$password = "smtp_password";

$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!

");
}
?>
