How can i send an Email using PHP at windows Azure?
i am using simple mail function:
$to .= 'email-Id';
$subject = " Test Subject";
$headers = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'To: '.$to.'' . "\r\n";
$headers .= 'From: '.$name. '<'.$email.'>' . "\r\n";
echo $message='email text here';
@mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
To send emails using PHP you have a few options:
Option 1: Use SMTP
You'll need to modify your php.ini configuration file (http://php.net/manual/en/ref.mail.php) and set the SMTP value to an external SMTP server you can use. SMTP servers are not part of the Windows Azure features at the moment.
[mail function] SMTP = mail.mycompany.com
Option 2: Use sendmail
You'll need to modify your php.ini configuration file (http://php.net/manual/en/ref.mail.php) and set the sendmail_path value to the sendmail executable.
[mail function] sendmail_path = "C:\wamp\sendmail\sendmail.exe -t"
Since sendmail doesn't exist in Windows, you'll need to use the fake sendmail for windows: http://glob.com.au/sendmail/
Option 3: Use a mail/smtp service
You could use a service like SendGrid to send your emails (they have an offer for Azure users: http://sendgrid.com/azure.html). They'll take care of sending out the email, you'll just need to call the REST api:
$sendgrid = new SendGrid('username', 'password'); $mail = new SendGridMail(); $mail->addTo('email@example.com')-> setFrom('firstname.lastname@example.org')-> setSubject('Subject goes here')-> setText('Hello World!')-> setHtml('<strong>Hello World!</strong>'); $sendgrid->smtp->send($mail);
