@mail using SMTP from settings?

Post by miteshpc » 2017-11-26 20:08

I have hooks created before the SMTP settings were introduced in admin area.

My hooks still send out email, but using the old SMTP settings, where to change those settings now?

There is another function sendmail you can use and its paramters
assoc array $mail( ['to', 'name', 'subject', 'message'] )

If you have configured SMTP SSL in the Admin settings page under the admin area, all you need to do is use sendmail() function instead of mail. Here is an example of how to use it (it takes its mail config from the admin settings page):

Code: Select all

sendmail(array(
   'to' => 'recipient email',
   'name' => 'recipient name (optional)',
   'subject' => 'Mail subject',
   'message' => 'Mail message, HTML allowed'
));

Could you please support CC, BCC and ReplyTo fields in the future.

Your sendmail function should look something like this:

Code: Select all

function sendmail( ... ) {

        // ...
        
	$pm->addAddress($mail['to'], $mail['name']);

// NEW CODE BELOW ------------------------------	
        if ($mail['replyto'])
	    $pm->addReplyTo($mail['replyto']);
        if ($mail['cc'])
            $pm->addCC($mail['cc']);
        if ($mail['bcc']) 
            $pm->addBCC($mail['bcc']);
        
        // ....
}
