Summary: This plugin has the option to override the default elgg email notification handler and email sending code with PHPMailer. It currently provides support for using the php mail function or a smtp server. See the included readme.txt for more information.
Description: This plugin provides a wrapper to the PHPMailer class. PHPMailer is used by many open source projects including Wordpress and Joomla. The class provides the abaility to send mail through php's mail function, sendmail, qmail, and smtp. It supports html email, file attachments, and embedding images. See http://phpmailer.codeworxtech.com/ for more details. This plugin provides a simple wrapper around the PHPMailer class.
Installation: Unzip and place in mod directory. Activate through Tools Administration. There are admin settings for smtp and non-standard MTAs. There are further instructions in the readme.txt file.
SMTP: SMTP can be setup in the admin settings of the plugin.
Notes:Other plugins may have their own email sending code and will not use this plugin therefore.
Bug Reports: Please post them in the comments along with any related error message in your server error log. If you did not read the readme file or check your error log, I am much less likely to spend time giving you support.
If using Elgg 1.7, use version 0.9.9.
q: We adapted your last version and included email address override filter (for test servers). I know you have seperate plugin for this... but there are so many plugins already and it's just a few lines of code, so we extended this one. Would you be willing to take our changes for this on Github?
