  • Will not work if fsockopen, fputs or fclose are disabled
  • Requires that both an SMTP username and an SMTP password be set
  • Awaits appropriate response code from server after each command and returns false if that code isn't received

  • Currently does not support secure connections (sorry GMail users!)
