Hi,
I am trying to get a third party shopping cart working but I keep getting the error-

Error: mail(): SMTP server response: 550 < No such user here
File: C:\HostingSpaces\Wedding Daze\studio-time.co.uk\wwwroot\proofbuddy-2-0-4\admin\class.phpmailer.php:477

The email that it is sent to is one that I have set up in my control panel. The cart is php, is it necessary to use Pear Mail to authenticate if so will I have to get the developer to customise the cart for it to work?

Thanks in advance

Neil Hutch

You would need to use PHP Pear as the mail servers require authentication to prevent abuse by spammers and email spoofing.

It should be fairly simply to change the code below is sample PHP Pear code:-

<?php
 require_once "Mail.php";
 
 $from = "website <me@example.com>";
 $to = "Me <you@your-domain.com>";
 $subject = "Hi!";
 $body = "Hi,\n\nTest from my website";
 
 $host = "mail.websitelive.net";
 $username = "me@example.com";
 $password = "my-password-here";
 
 $headers = array ('From' => $from,
   'To' => $to,
   'Subject' => $subject);
 $smtp = Mail::factory('smtp',
   array ('host' => $host,
     'auth' => true,
     'username' => $username,
     'password' => $password));
 
 $mail = $smtp->send($to, $headers, $body);
 
 if (PEAR::isError($mail)) {
   echo("<p>" . $mail->getMessage() . "</p>");
  } else {
   echo("<p>Message successfully sent!</p>");
  }
 ?>
