Send mail using Pear:Mail

How can I send mail from php using a specific smtp host, for example, smtp1.phpwebhosting.com or my private smtp server?

Use the pear mail package.

include(‘Mail.php’);

$from = ““;
$to = ““;
$subject = “Test”;
$body = “Test”;

$host = “smtp1.phpwebhosting.com”; // enter the smtp server you wish to use here
$port = “25”; // smtp port
$username = “your_smtp_user@domain.com”; // your smtp-auth username
$password = “your_password”; // your smtp-auth password

$headers = array (‘From’ => $from,
‘To’ => $to,
‘Subject’ => $subject);
$smtp = Mail::factory(‘smtp’,
array (‘host’ => $host,
‘port’ => $port,
‘auth’ => true,
‘username’ => $username,
‘password’ => $password));

$mail = $smtp->send($to, $headers, $body);

if (PEAR::isError($mail)) {
echo(“

” . $mail->getMessage() . “

“);
} else {
echo(“

Message successfully sent!

“);
}
