in HTML format to one or more recipient. I am currently using PHP's
mail() function. It works alright but it doesn't seem reliable. I am
not able to send email to my hotmail account but it does send to yahoo
account. I'm not sure if there is something about hotmail that blocks
emails for some unknown reason. If it goes to yahoo, it must go to
hotmail. it doesn't even appear on junk mail section of hotmail. so i'm
thining if I use PHPMailer, will it solve this issue? what are your
Re: PHPMailer vs mail() function
Hotmail has a main filter, if a mail is caught by it, the sender, the
recipient will be unknowing what happen with the mail. There is no problems to
be caught by this primary filter, quite normal e-mails can be filtered away.
Using PHPMailer will not make any difference for you, your mail will still be
filtered away and Hotmail won't tell you what criteria they have to filter
mail as spam, you will need to test your way around.
