Full Featured Email Transfer Class for PHP
Version 5.0.0 (April 02, 2009)
With the release of this version, we are initiating a new version numbering
system to differentiate from the PHP4 version of PHPMailer.
Most notable in this release is fully object oriented code.
We now have available the PHPDocumentor (phpdocs) documentation. This is
separate from the regular download to keep file sizes down. Please see the
download area of
We also have created a new test script (see /test_script) that you can use
right out of the box. Copy the /test_script folder directly to your server (in
the same structure ... with class.phpmailer.php and class.smtp.php in the
folder above it. Then launch the test script with:
from this one script, you can test your server settings for mail(), sendmail (or
qmail), and SMTP. This will email you a sample email (using contents.html for
the email body) and two attachments. One of the attachments is used as an inline
image to demonstrate how PHPMailer will automatically detect if attachments are
the same source as inline graphics and only include one version. Once you click
the Submit button, the results will be displayed including any SMTP debug
information and send status. We will also display a version of the script that
you can cut and paste to include in your projects. Enjoy!
Version 2.3 (November 08, 2008)
We have removed the /phpdoc from the downloads. All documentation is now on
the website.
The phpunit.php has been updated to support PHP5.
For all other changes and notes, please see the changelog.

Version 2.2 (July 15 2008)
- see the changelog.
Version 2.1 (June 04 2008)
With this release, we are announcing that the development of PHPMailer for PHP5
will be our focus from this date on. We have implemented all the enhancements
and fixes from the latest release of PHPMailer for PHP4.
Far more important, though, is that this release of PHPMailer (v2.1) is
fully tested with E_STRICT error checking enabled.
We have now added S/MIME functionality (ability to digitally sign emails).
BIG THANKS TO "sergiocambra" for posting this patch back in November 2007.
The "Signed Emails" functionality adds the Sign method to pass the private key
filename and the password to read it, and then email will be sent with
content-type multipart/signed and with the digital signature attached.
A quick note on E_STRICT:
- In about half the test environments the development version was subjected
to, an error was thrown for the date() functions (used at line 1565 and 1569).
This is NOT a PHPMailer error, it is the result of an incorrectly configured
PHP5 installation. The fix is to modify your 'php.ini' file and include the
date.timezone = America/New York
directive, (for your own server timezone)
- If you do get this error, and are unable to access your php.ini file, there is
a workaround. In your PHP script, add
* do NOT try to use
$myVar = date_default_timezone_get();
as a test, it will throw an error.
We have also included more example files to show the use of "sendmail", "mail()",
"smtp", and "gmail".
We are also looking for more programmers to join the volunteer development team.
If you have an interest in this, please let us know.
Version 2.1.0beta1 & beta2
please note, this is BETA software
** NOTE:
As of November 2007, PHPMailer has a new project team headed by industry
veteran Andy Prevost (codeworxtech). The first release in more than two
years will focus on fixes, adding ease-of-use enhancements, provide
basic compatibility with PHP4 and PHP5 using PHP5 backwards compatibility
features. A new release is planned before year-end 2007 that will provide
full compatiblity with PHP4 and PHP5, as well as more bug fixes.
We are looking for project developers to assist in restoring PHPMailer to
its leadership position. Our goals are to simplify use of PHPMailer, provide
good documentation and examples, and retain backward compatibility to level
1.7.3 standards.

This software is licenced under the LGPL. Please read LICENSE for information on the
software availability and distribution.
Class Features:
- Send emails with multiple TOs, CCs, BCCs and REPLY-TOs
- Redundant SMTP servers
- Multipart/alternative emails for mail clients that do not read HTML email
- Support for 8bit, base64, binary, and quoted-printable encoding
- Uses the same methods as the very popular AspEmail active server (COM) component
- SMTP authentication
- Native language support
- Word wrap, and more!
Why you might need it:
Many PHP developers utilize email in their code. The only PHP function
that supports this is the mail() function. However, it does not expose
any of the popular features that many email clients use nowadays like
HTML-based emails and attachments. There are two proprietary
development tools out there that have all the functionality built into
easy to use classes: AspEmail(tm) and AspMail. Both of these
programs are COM components only available on Windows. They are also a
little pricey for smaller projects.
Since I do Linux development Ive missed these tools for my PHP coding.
So I built a version myself that implements the same methods (object
calls) that the Windows-based components do. It is open source and the
LGPL license allows you to place the class in your proprietary PHP
Copy class.phpmailer.php into your php.ini include_path. If you are
using the SMTP mailer then place class.smtp.php in your path as well.
In the language directory you will find several files like
phpmailer.lang-en.php. If you look right before the .php extension
that there are two letters. These represent the language type of the
translation file. For instance "en" is the English file and "br" is
the Portuguese file. Chose the file that best fits with your language
and place it in the PHP include path. If your language is English
then you have nothing more to do. If it is a different language then
you must point PHPMailer to the correct translation. To do this, call
the PHPMailer SetLanguage method like so:
// To load the Portuguese version
$mail->SetLanguage("br", "/optional/path/to/language/directory/");
That's it. You should now be ready to use PHPMailer!
A Simple Example:
$mail = new PHPMailer();
$mail->IsSMTP(); // set mailer to use SMTP
$mail->Host = ";"; // specify main and backup server
$mail->SMTPAuth = true; // turn on SMTP authentication
$mail->Username = "jswan"; // SMTP username
$mail->Password = "secret"; // SMTP password
$mail->From = "";
$mail->FromName = "Mailer";
$mail->AddAddress("", "Josh Adams");
$mail->AddAddress(""); // name is optional
$mail->AddReplyTo("", "Information");
$mail->WordWrap = 50; // set word wrap to 50 characters
$mail->AddAttachment("/var/tmp/file.tar.gz"); // add attachments
$mail->AddAttachment("/tmp/image.jpg", "new.jpg"); // optional name
$mail->IsHTML(true); // set email format to HTML
$mail->Subject = "Here is the subject";
$mail->Body = "This is the HTML message body <b>in bold!</b>";
$mail->AltBody = "This is the body in plain text for non-HTML mail clients";
echo "Message could not be sent. <p>";
echo "Mailer Error: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;
echo "Message has been sent";

# PHPMailer - A full-featured email creation and transfer class for PHP
Build status: [![Build Status](](
## Class Features
- Probably the world's most popular code for sending email from PHP!
- Used by many open-source projects: Drupal, SugarCRM, Yii, Joomla! and many more
- Integrated SMTP support - send without a local mail server
- send emails with multiple TOs, CCs, BCCs and REPLY-TOs
- Multipart/alternative emails for mail clients that do not read HTML email
- Support for 8bit, base64, binary, and quoted-printable encoding
- SMTP authentication with LOGIN, PLAIN, NTLM and CRAM-MD5 mechanisms
- Native language support
- Compatible with PHP 5.0 and later
- Much more!
## Why you might need it
Many PHP developers utilize email in their code. The only PHP function that supports this is the mail() function. However, it does not provide any assistance for making use of popular features such as HTML-based emails and attachments.
Formatting email correctly is surprisingly difficult. There are myriad overlapping RFCs, requiring tight adherence to horribly complicated formatting and encoding rules - the vast majority of code that you'll find online that uses the mail() function directly is just plain wrong!
*Please* don't be tempted to do it yourself - if you don't use PHPMailer, there are many other excellent libraries that you should look at before rolling your own - try SwiftMailer, Zend_Mail, eZcomponents etc.
The PHP mail() function usually sends via a local mail server, typically fronted by a `sendmail` binary on Linux, BSD and OS X platforms, however, Windows usually doesn't include a local mail server; PHPMailer's integrated SMTP implementation allows email sending on Windows platforms without a local mail server.
## License
This software is licenced under the [LGPL 2.1]( Please read LICENSE for information on the
software availability and distribution.
## Installation
PHPMailer is available via [Composer/Packagist]( Alternatively, just copy the contents of the PHPMailer folder into somewhere that's in your PHP `include_path` setting. If you don't speak git or just want a tarball, click the 'zip' button at the top of the page in GitHub.
## A Simple Example
require 'class.phpmailer.php';
$mail = new PHPMailer;
$mail->isSMTP(); // Set mailer to use SMTP
$mail->Host = ';'; // Specify main and backup server
$mail->SMTPAuth = true; // Enable SMTP authentication
$mail->Username = 'jswan'; // SMTP username
$mail->Password = 'secret'; // SMTP password
$mail->SMTPSecure = 'tls'; // Enable encryption, 'ssl' also accepted
$mail->From = '';
$mail->FromName = 'Mailer';
$mail->addAddress('', 'Josh Adams'); // Add a recipient
$mail->addAddress(''); // Name is optional
$mail->addReplyTo('', 'Information');
$mail->WordWrap = 50; // Set word wrap to 50 characters
$mail->addAttachment('/var/tmp/file.tar.gz'); // Add attachments
$mail->addAttachment('/tmp/image.jpg', 'new.jpg'); // Optional name
$mail->isHTML(true); // Set email format to HTML
$mail->Subject = 'Here is the subject';
$mail->Body = 'This is the HTML message body <b>in bold!</b>';
$mail->AltBody = 'This is the body in plain text for non-HTML mail clients';
if(!$mail->send()) {
echo 'Message could not be sent.';
echo 'Mailer Error: ' . $mail->ErrorInfo;
echo 'Message has been sent';
You'll find plenty more to play with in the `examples` folder.
That's it. You should now be ready to use PHPMailer!
## Localization
PHPMailer defaults to English, but in the `languages` folder you'll find numerous translations for PHPMailer error messages that you may encounter. Their filenames contain [ISO 639-1]( language code for the translations, for example `fr` for French. To specify a language, you need to tell PHPMailer which one to use, like this:
// To load the French version
$mail->setLanguage('fr', '/optional/path/to/language/directory/');
## Documentation
You'll find some basic user-level docs in the docs folder, and you can generate complete API-level documentation using the `` shell script in the docs folder, though you'll need to install [PHPDocumentor]( first.
## Tests
You'll find a PHPUnit test script in the `test` folder.
Build status: [![Build Status](](
If this isn't passing, is there something you can do to help?
## Contributing
Please submit bug reports, suggestions and pull requests to the [GitHub issue tracker](
We're particularly interested in fixing edge-cases, expanding test coverage and updating translations.
With the move to the PHPMailer GitHub organisation, you'll need to update any remote URLs referencing the old GitHub location with a command like this from within your clone:
`git remote set-url upstream`
Please *don't* use the SourceForge or Google Code projects any more.

We have had requests for a method to process the results of sending emails
through PHPMailer. In this new release, we have implemented a callback
function that passes the results of each email sent (to, cc, and/or bcc).
We have provided an example that echos the results back to the screen. The
callback function can be used for any purpose. With minor modifications, the
callback function can be used to create CSV logs, post results to databases,
Please review the test.php script for the example.
It's pretty straight forward.
CREATE DKIM KEYS and DNS Resource Record:
To create DomainKeys Identified Mail keys, visit:
... read the information, fill in the form, and download the ZIP file
containing the public key, private key, DNS Resource Record and instructions
to add to your DNS Zone Record, and the PHPMailer code to enable DKIM
digital signing.
You need to protect your DKIM private and public keys from being viewed or
accessed. Add protection to your .htaccess file as in this example:
# secure htkeyprivate file
<Files .htkeyprivate>
order allow,deny
deny from all
# secure htkeypublic file
<Files .htkeypublic>
order allow,deny
deny from all
(the actual .htaccess additions are in the ZIP file sent back to you from
A few notes on using DomainKey Identified Mail (DKIM):
You do not need to use PHPMailer to DKIM sign emails IF:
- you enable DomainKey support and add the DNS resource record
- you use your outbound mail server
If you are a third-party emailer that works on behalf of domain owners to
send their emails from your own server:
- you absolutely have to DKIM sign outbound emails
- the domain owner has to add the DNS resource record to match the
private key, public key, selector, identity, and domain that you create
- use caution with the "selector" ... at least one "selector" will already
exist in the DNS Zone Record of the domain at the domain owner's server
you need to ensure that the "selector" you use is unique
Note: since the IP address will not match the domain owner's DNS Zone record
you can be certain that email providers that validate based on DomainKey will
check the domain owner's DNS Zone record for your DNS resource record. Before
sending out emails on behalf of domain owners, ensure they have entered the
DNS resource record you provided them.
PS. if you need additional information about DKIM, please see:
If you are having problems connecting or sending emails through your SMTP server, please note:
1. The new rewrite of class.smtp.php provides more information about the processing/errors taking place
2. Use the debug functionality of class.smtp.php. To do that, in your own script add the debug level you wish to use. An example of that is:
$mail->SMTPDebug = 1;
$mail->IsSMTP(); // telling the class to use SMTP
$mail->SMTPAuth = true; // enable SMTP authentication
$mail->Port = 26; // set the SMTP port
$mail->Host = ""; // SMTP server
$mail->Username = ""; // SMTP account username
$mail->Password = "your password"; // SMTP account password
Notes on this:
$mail->SMTPDebug = 0; ... will disable debugging (you can also leave this out completely, 0 is the default
$mail->SMTPDebug = 1; ... will echo errors and messages
$mail->SMTPDebug = 2; ... will echo messages only
... and finally, the options are 0, 1, and 2 ... any number greater than 2 will be interpreted as 2
And finally, don't forget to disable debugging before going into production.
