Send mail in PHP
The mail() function allows you to send emails directly from a script.
Description of parameters
|to||Required. Specifies the receiver's email id|
Required. Specifies the subject of the email.
Note: This parameter cannot contain any newline characters
Required. Defines the message to be sent. Each line should be separated with a LF (\n). Lines should not exceed 70 characters.
Windows note: If a full stop is found on the beginning of a line in the message, it might be removed. To solve this problem, replace the full stop with a double dot:$txt = str_replace("\n.", "\n..", $txt);
|headers||Optional. Specifies additional headers, like From, Cc, and Bcc. The additional headers should be separated with a CRLF (\r\n).|
|parameters||Optional. Specifies an additional parameter to the sendmail program (the one defined in the sendmail_path configuration setting). (i.e. this can be used to set the envelope sender address when using sendmail with the -f sendmail option)|
<?php $to = "email@example.com"; $subject = "My subject"; $msg = "Hello world!"; $headers = "From: firstname.lastname@example.org" . "\r\n" . "CC: email@example.com"; mail($to,$subject,$msg,$headers); ?>
