I would like to send an email using Gmail SMTP server through PHP Mailer.

this is my code

<?php
require_once('class.phpmailer.php');

$mail = new PHPMailer();
$mail->IsSMTP();
$mail->CharSet="UTF-8";
$mail->SMTPSecure = 'tls';
$mail->Host = 'smtp.gmail.com';
$mail->Port = 587;
$mail->Username = 'MyUsername@gmail.com';
$mail->Password = 'valid password';
$mail->SMTPAuth = true;

$mail->From = 'MyUsername@gmail.com';
$mail->FromName = 'Mohammad Masoudian';
$mail->AddAddress('anotherValidGmail@gmail.com');
$mail->AddReplyTo('phoenixd110@gmail.com', 'Information');

$mail->IsHTML(true);
$mail->Subject = "PHPMailer Test Subject via Sendmail, basic";
$mail->AltBody = "To view the message, please use an HTML compatible email viewer!";
$mail->Body = "Hello";

if(!$mail->Send())
{
echo "Mailer Error: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;
}
else
{
echo "Message sent!";
}
?>


but i recieve this following error

Mailer Error: SMTP Error: The following recipients failed: anotherValidGmail@gmail.com

SMTP server error: SMTP AUTH is required for message submission on port 587

Answer
$mail = new PHPMailer(); // create a new object
$mail->IsSMTP(); // enable SMTP
$mail->SMTPDebug = 1; // debugging: 1 = errors and messages, 2 = messages only
$mail->SMTPAuth = true; // authentication enabled
$mail->SMTPSecure = 'ssl'; // secure transfer enabled REQUIRED for Gmail
$mail->Host = "smtp.gmail.com";
$mail->Port = 465; // or 587
$mail->IsHTML(true);
$mail->Username = "email@gmail.com";
$mail->Password = "password";
$mail->SetFrom("example@gmail.com");
$mail->Subject = "Test";
$mail->Body = "hello";
$mail->AddAddress("email@gmail.com");

 if(!$mail->Send()) {
    echo "Mailer Error: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;
 } else {
    echo "Message has been sent";
 }

This code above has been tested and worked for me.

It could be that you needed $mail->SMTPSecure = 'ssl';

Also make sure you don't have two step verification switched on for that account as that can cause problems also.

UPDATED

You could try changing $mail->SMTP to:

$mail->SMTPSecure = 'tls';

It's worth noting that some SMTP servers block connections. Some SMTP servers don't support SSL (or TLS) connections.
