I just downloaded PHPMailer.
1) I'm looking throught the docs and not sure what route to take. I'm on a hosted linux server with PHP5. In the past, whenever I've sent any email using PHP, I did so with mail(). But CPanel tells me a "path to sendmail". So I'm pretty sure I can also use sendmail. I also have access to three smtp servers.
Can someone help me figure out the pros and cons of one vs the others?
Also, assuming for a minute that I DON'T use SMTP, do I need to upload class.smtp.php to the server?
2) The docs tell me that I can set the encoding to one of 5 values. I'm not sure what the different ones mean.
I'm interested in being able to send messages that have HTML (but also have plaintext for email clients that can't--or are set not to--display HTML), be able to send file attachments sometimes.
The options for this are "8bit", "7bit", "binary", "base64", and "quoted-printable".
3) What's the difference between "Sender" and "From"?
