SwiftMailer 3

Swift is a fully OOP Library for sending e-mails from PHP websites and applications. It does not rely on PHP’s native mail() function which is known for using high server resources when sending multiple emails. Instead, Swift communicates directly with an SMTP server or a MTA binary to send mail quickly and efficiently.

Early versions of Swift were comparable to PHPMailer. Swift has since evolved and matured into a fully-fledged object-oriented mailing solution. Compared with PHPMailer, the interface for Swift is both tighter and more intuitive.”

So describes Chris Corbyn his Swift or SwiftMailer project for PHP. I’ve been using it since version 2.x and can happily recommend it to any serious PHP developer out there (in stating this, I’m by no means claiming to be a serious PHP developer of course :-). Chris provides for both PHP4 and PHP5 compliant packages.

SwiftMailer is more than just a replacement for PHPmailer, XpertMailer, and other similar packages. Version three sports a much more flexible plugin architecture.

Do you PHP? Do it Swiftly.

You’ll find SwiftMailer on www.swiftmailer.org.
