Need help with adding SMTP Auth to PHP Email form


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, this is my first post. i am starting to learn flash and other programs and haven't started on PHP yet. I have purchased a template that i am modifying and the problem i am having is that my server is a windows one and doesn't like the code that i have attached. It is very simple and doesn't offer any protection with strip slashes etc but the real problem is that i need to add the smpt auth.


I have tried several lines of code but it doesnt seem to work. 


I cant change the headers so i am hoping i can get a little help from this community. It is greatly appreciated

Thanks for that, i appreciate the code, the important thing though is the original code that i sent (attached) needs to be put in the body of this,  i am not sure of the order though.


Is it just simple enough to add to the bottom of the smtp code that you sent.
