Sending Mail Using PHP with SwiftMailer

ATTENTION: WarningThis example using SwiftMailer is for PHP 7.1 and below

For PHP 7.2 and above please see the Swiftmailer 6 example at; SwiftMailer 6 Example

Below you will find an example of sending email from your Web Wiz Hosted Website using PHP 7.1 and SwiftMailer.

In order to send email you will first need to Setup a Mailbox from your Hosting Control Panel to use to send your email.

You would then enter the email address for your mailbox where it has "[email protected]" and the password where it has "YourPasswordHere" in the example below.

If you are sending email from a "Contact Us" form on your website you may wish to use the website visitors address when replying to teh email. For this you would set a "ReplyTo" address with the visitors email address where you see "[email protected]"


require_once 'swift_required.php';

$host = "smtp.websitelive.net";
$port = 587;
$username = "[email protected]";
$password = "YourPasswordHere";

$from = "[email protected]";
$to = "[email protected]";
$replyto = "[email protected]";

$subject = "Hi!";
$body = "Hi,\n\n Test from my website";

$transport = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance()


$swift = Swift_Mailer::newInstance($transport);

$message = new Swift_Message($subject);
$message->setBody($body, 'text/html');

if ($recipients = $swift->send($message, $failures))
         echo("<p>Message successfully sent!</p>");
} else {
         echo("<p>There was an error!</p>");
