Smart Mailer PHP Manual Support

Quick and easy, great looking HTML mails in PHP!

You can offer your clients the ability to send HTML mails based on a template (either on your machine or at a URL), each personalized with the recipient's name. You can add attachments to everyone, or a group of people, there's progress bars while you're sending them - all this in an external PHP include file, so just a couple of lines on your page.

This extension uses old Server Behaviors technology deprecated by Adobe and we will also deprecate it soon. Please use the new DMXzone Mailer, based on the new DMXzone Server Connect technology for building dynamic web sites with server connectivity.

- OR -


  • Generates fully MHTML compatible mails with the images included or linked to the web - You can send mail with the images included in the mail so the mail can be read offline, or create links to the images where the image reside on the internet somewhere.

  • Send to single or multiple users - You can easily choose to send a mail to one person, send CC's or BCC's, or multiple recipients from a recordset.

  • Use cool real-time Flash progress bars when sending bulk mail - When sending mail to multiple recipients you can choose to show a real time progress bar that follows the progress of the mail being send.

  • Fully personalize your mails so that they include personal information - You can include dynamic data to personalize the mail, form variables for example.

  • Use any URL as template for the mail body!  -This way you can send for example
    personalized invoices and still have them available on the web as well.

  • Send fully customized HTML mails based on a Template - Imagine sending a newsletter just like the one from DMXzone

  • Add attachments in any way you want - one by one, full folder or via recordset!
  • Support for lots of standard mail components for mail processing - The following mail components are supported: SendMail and SMTP.

  • Extended error checking - The extension includes an error checking function that you can turn on or off. If you turn it on and something goes wrong while sending the mail you will get an error message

  • Generates just a few lines of code on your page - Your page size stays small with the code for the Smart Mailer extension in a separate include file.

I like the extention but it doesn't work for multipul emails thru a record set, also it should get the file attachment from the form file field instead of just a record set or at least the option for either.

It's a pity

It's a pity that this extension hasn't been developed further. There is so much more that could be done to make this extension more useable.
