installing PHPmailer in CI2 third_party folder

#1
hello everyone

I coded my website to send emails using the default mail() function.It worked even with html format emails until a day ago that i recieved the error message:
Unable to send email using PHP mail(). Your server might not be configured to send mail using this method. What can possibly be the problem? I need your help please. I'm also considering using PHPmailer or any other third party mailer yet i don't know how to install it. Thanks in advance for your help.

You could try one of my tutorials: http://avenir.ro/codeigniter-swift-mailer-composer/

The same principle applies for PHPMailer.

As far as why you can't send mail, I'd check with your host to see if anything changed. Perhaps they performed an upgrade or something.

Here's a codeigniter email PHPMailer integration, which overrides CI's default mail functionality. Uses the same CI mail methods as a drop in replacement.
