Send out full HTML mails to your users using PHPMailer (

This gives you a way to use a real mail server (MTA) to send email, instead of PHP mail-function. Using a real MTA makes a world of difference when trying to avoid email from ending up in Google or Micr$oft's spam filter.

This project borrows ideas and functionality from two plugin projects:

html_email_handler by Jerome Bakker ( phpmailer by Cash (

  • Send out notifications using PHPMailer. Support for SMTP, SMTP AUTH, TLS/SSL and more
