// 1) Join Mandrill at http://mandrill.com/
// 2) Download PHPMailer from https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer
// Adapted example from: shared/PHPMailer-master/examples/mailing_list.phps
require_once 'shared/PHPMailer-master/class.phpmailer.php';
require_once 'shared/PHPMailer-master/class.smtp.php';
$message = "This is a test message prepared on: " . date( 'r' ) . " from " . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . ' ' . $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
$mail = new PHPMailer;
$mail->addAddress( 'example_recipient@example.com', 'Example Name' );
$mail->Subject = "Testing Mandril: " . date('Y-m-d');
$mail->msgHTML($message);
$mail->Username = 'youremail@example.com';
$mail->Password = 'your_mandrill_api_key';
$mail->Host = 'smtp.mandrillapp.com';
$mail->isSMTP();
$mail->SMTPAuth = true;
$mail->SMTPKeepAlive = true; // SMTP connection will not close after each email sent, reduces SMTP overhead
$mail->Port = 587;
$mail->setFrom( 'mailer@' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] );
//msgHTML also sets AltBody, but if you want a custom one, set it afterwards
$mail->AltBody = 'To view the message, please use an HTML compatible email viewer!';
$sent_status = $mail->send() ? 1 : 0;
$result = "Send status: " . $sent_status;
if ( ! $sent_status ) {
$result .= " Error: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;
}
echo $result;
