Unable to send an e-mail via gmail with php pear mail ()

advertisements

I am attempting to send mail through my gmail account from a Dedicated Godaddy server. I have attempted to send email through my company's email server but Godaddy kills port 25 with no workaround (grrr).

I have searched high and low for a solution to this including here but am unable to send any emails. I always get an 'Authentication Required' error from google.

Here is the code I use to send the email:

include("Mail.php");

/* mail setup recipients, subject etc */

$headers["From"]   = "[email protected]";
$headers["to"]    = "[email protected]";
$headers["subject"]   = "User feedback";
$mailmsg    = "Hello, This is a test.";

/* SMTP server name, port, user/passwd */

$smtpinfo["host"]   = "ssl://smtp.gmail.com";
$smtpinfo["port"]   = 465;
$smtpinfo["auth"]   = true;
$smtpinfo["username"]   = "[email protected]";
$smtpinfo["password"]   = "xxxxxx";
$smtpinfo["debug"]  = true;

/* Create the mail object using the Mail::factory method */

// $mail_object =& Mail::factory("smtp", $smtpinfo);
// EDIT -- removed reference   

$mail_object = Mail::factory("smtp", $smtpinfo);

/* Ok send mail */

$result = $mail_object->send($recipients, $headers, $mailmsg);

if(PEAR::isError($result))
{
 echo "\nerror sending mail: ".PEAR_Error::getCode().' '.PEAR_Error::getMessage();
}
else
 echo "\nSuccessfully sent mail.";

Here is the response from pear mail:

Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in /usr/share/php/PEAR.php on line 970

Any help is greatly appreciated.


The solution is... there is no solution since Godaddy was doing blocking. No way to get around it so I ended up using their 'approved' mail delivery server. grrr.
