I have written a drop-in replacement for cmsimple/classes/Mail.php which uses PHPMailer 5.2 instead of the plain mail() function. To use it, replace the contents of cmsimple/classes/Mail.php with the following:

Code: Select all

}
Then download the latest PHPMailer 5.2, that is currently 5.2.26. Extract the PHPMailer archive, and copy the five files starting with "class." and PHPMailerAutoload.php to cmsimple/classes/.

Basically, this should already be sufficient, but most likely you will have configure PHPMailer with appropriate SMTP settings. You can do this in function __construct() in cmsimple/classes/Mail.php, similar to what is shown in the Simple Example.
