Sending Mail Using Php's Mail() Function Send mail from any account 2 any account


hi, It is possible to send mail from any account to any account using the php's built in mail() function.. for which is very easy to write the coding... wt you are supposed to do is just pass the parameters like from, to, subject, message .. and attachments if any, and your email will be sent in no time.. as Xisto.com supports the php scripts you can use it if you already have an account here...==============================================Example 1. Sending mail. If a fourth string argument is passed, this string is inserted at the end of the header. This is typically used to add extra headers. Multiple extra headers are separated with a carriage return and newline. Note: You must use \r\n to separate headers, although some Unix mail transfer agents replace \n by \r\n automatically (leads to doubling \r if \r\n is used). Example 2. Sending mail with extra headers. The additional_parameters parameter can be used to pass an additional parameter to the program configured to use when sending mail using the sendmail_path configuration setting. For example, this can be used to set the envelope sender address when using sendmail with the -f sendmail option. You may need to add the user that your web server runs as to your sendmail configuration to prevent a 'X-Warning' header from being added to the message when you set the envelope sender using this method. Example 3. Sending mail with extra headers and setting an additional command line parameter. Note: This fifth parameter was added in PHP 4.0.5. Since PHP 4.2.3 this parameter is disabled in safe_mode and the mail() function will expose a warning message and return FALSE if you're trying to use it. You can also use simple string building techniques to build complex email messages. Example 4. Sending complex email.

';/* To send HTML mail, you can set the Content-type header.

*/$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";$headers .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n";/* additional headers */$headers .= "To: Mary , Kelly \r\n";$headers .= "From: Birthday Reminder \r\n";$headers .= "Cc: birthdayarchive@example.com\r\n";$headers .= "Bcc: birthdaycheck@example.com\r\n";/* and now mail it */mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);?>
Note: Make sure you do not have any newline characters in the to or subject, or the mail may not be sent properly. Note: The to parameter should not be an address in the form of "Something ". The mail command may not parse this properly while talking with the MTA (Particularly under Windows). ========================================


awesome. i didn't think you could send mail with php.


Nearly the entire tutorial can be found here at this PHP Manual page and actually almost verbatim the HTML in Email example if right from the manual. To learn even more then I sould suggest that you download the manual and possibly also get a great free PHP editor like PHP Designer and it will incorperate the manual and do keyword lookup of PHP functions like the PHP mail() and you would learn even more if you use the online book at this link Practical PHP you might even learn more, it is full of examples and covers just about everything including PHP 5 with the support for OOP.
