  1. Hi, I'm using PHPMailer to send email from a contact form using gmail SMTP which requires to include the SMTP password directly in the PHP script like so $mail->Password = 'mypassword'; According to what I've found on the net, it seems that it's not recommended since the password can be easily hacked. Thus, I'm wondering how to do to protect my password. I've found people recommending to put the password in an INI file outside the webroot and then to retrieve it using parse_ini_file() function. My problem is that I'm not sure I understand the "outside the webroot" part… if anyone could explain this to me and how to do it, it would be much appreciated. Also, should I protect the INI file with a .htaccess? Thanks.
  2. BACKGROUND: I am setting up an email verification routine that receives $_POST data from a form and sends a confirmation email to the applicant with a verification link. The form and the PHP processing routines that store the $_POST data in a MySQL database, and that send out the confirmation email in text format are contained in the same document. The HTML formatted confirmation email is contained in an external file and is included using the following PHP-Mailer method: $mail->msgHTML(file_get_contents('../../confirmation_mail.html'), dirname(__FILE__)); GOAL: Include in the external HTML file information obtained from the $_POST variable before the email is sent. WHAT DOES NOT APPEAR TO WORK: I have tried placing statements similar to <?php echo "blah, blah, blah" . $variable_name . "blah, blah, blah"; ?> in the external file in the hope that the value of $variable_name would be read into the file before it is sent. Unfortunately, this does not work. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
  3. Hello, I have a problem involving Phpmailer and a While loop. Actually I have always had problems to sending emails this way. Now for instance I can send e-mails trough an IF (instead of While) and the following script works fine. But as soon as I change it into While it doesn't. Even the last part of the script (UPDATE) doesn't work (it worked upon IF). I am trying with just two e-mails to be sent and only the first one is sent.I would be so happy to solve this issue. While loop is really important when it comes to sending e-mails. This is my script: ...include('conexioninclude.php');mysql_set_charset('utf8');$registros=mysql_query("SELECT mail, name, password, codigo FROM alert WHERE status='on' AND language1='$language2' AND language2='$language1' AND way LIKE '%$way%' ORDER BY codigo",$conexion)ordie("Problems at selectt:".mysql_error());require("class.phpmailer.php");$mail = new PHPMailer();while($reg=mysql_fetch_array($registros)){$mailu=$reg['mail'];$namee=$reg['name'];$password=$reg['password'];$codigo=$reg['codigo'];$mail->IsSMTP();$mail->Port = 465;$mail->SMTPSecure = "ssl"; $mail->Host = ""; $mail->SMTPAuth = true;$mail->Username = "xxxxx";$mail->Password = "xxxxxx"; // SMTP password$webmaster_email = "xxxxxx"; //Reply to this email ID$email="xxxxx"; // Recipients email ID$name="Admin"; // Recipient's name$mail->From = "xxxxxx";$mail->FromName = "";$mail->AddAddress($mailu,$namee);$mail->AddReplyTo(xxxxxx,"Webmaster");$mail->WordWrap = 50; // set word wrap$mail->SetLanguage("en","/php/language/");$mail->AddAttachment("/var/tmp/file.tar.gz");$mail->AddAttachment("/tmp/image.jpg", "phone.jpg");$mail->AddAttachment("image.jpg", "phone.jpg"); $mail->IsHTML(true); // send as HTML$mail->Subject = "xxxxxxxxx";$foto= "imagess/bonito.jpg";$mensaje='<font-color="#559999"><img src="'. $foto .'" width="600"><br /><br />Hello '.$namee.',<br /><br />xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx .<br /><br />Sincerely yours</font>'; $mail->MsgHTML($mensaje);if(!$mail->Send()){print<<<HEREmessage wasn't sent;HERE;}else{$registros2=mysql_query("SELECT yep FROM vamos WHERE password='$password'",$conexion)ordie("Problems at selectt:".mysql_error());if($reg=mysql_fetch_array($registros)){$yep=$reg['yep']; // it's an Int type field (numbers)$saw=$yep+1;$registros3=mysql_query("UPDATE vamosSET yep='$saw'WHERE password='$password'",$conexion)ordie("Proble8uhims with selectttt:".mysql_error());}print<<<HEREsuccess!;HERE;}... Thank you very much in advance for any help. Regards
