I have a fairly simple question. I have a registration form on my site and I want to send the new user a confirmation email so that I can confirm they agree to my terms etc. I am using mail() and for the most part it works just fine. But, every once in a while, either the mail won't come to me or I'll get a duplicate message from several days before.
I'm just wondering if using mail() is the best way to go for this purpose or if I need to use something like phpmailer or other classes out there.
I'm not clear on if mail() uses smtp or not and what the pros and cons are of the different ways of sending an email via php. Anyone have any insight?
Thank you so much,
