Sending out newsletter to emails in database


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am using the phpmailer class and a little script I found online, I have a form with a textarea called "plain" which submits and takes the action through to this page:



#include PHPMailer class and database connection

#remove slashes from content
$plain = stripslashes($_POST["plain"]);

#initiate PHPMailer class
$mail = new PHPMailer();
#set the from e-mail address
$mail->From = "email@email.com";
#set the from name
$mail->FromName = "myname";

#the subject of the email
$mail->Subject = "Our Newsletter";
#the HTML content of the email
$mail->Body = $plain;

#loop through e-mail addresses
$query = "SELECT email FROM member";
$result = mysql_db_query ("define_pete", $query);
while ($myrow = mysql_fetch_array($result)){

#add subscribers address as the recipient
#sends the newsletter
#clears the recipient address




It gives no errors and goes through, yet it definitely sends no emails out, I have made sure the emails are correct in the field email in the table member but it is, anyone got any clue what is going wrong?
