(unknown sender) (no subject)

Recommended Posts


Using this below code, i have made one application which will send the users with the name as (unknown sender)

and the subject line will the (no subject),

can any one explain me why is this happening??

Seeing this can i think that i can hide my real name and things without authentication using PHP


require_once "Mail.php";

$from = "Support <[email]email@email.com[/email]>";
$to = "Chaitu <[email]myid@gmail.com[/email]>";
$subject = "Hi!";
$body = "<h1>Hi</h1>,\n\nHow are you?";

$host = "mail.example.com";
$username = "smtp_username";
$password = "smtp_password";
$headers  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";

// Additional headers
$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>");


by the way i forgot to tell.

the smtp details i have intentionally removed them from here..  :P
