Hi,

i made an HTML contact form with the following fields name, email and message and i want to send it to my gmail address with SMTP authentication.

Please can anyone guide me with a step by step process? i am new to PHP.

i found the script for SMTP authentication but i am unable to configure it.

regards

Aqeel

Did you search this forum? There should be plenty discussion threads about GMail/PHPMailer and authentication.

i have searched the forum yes there are plenty of it but still confusing for me. need a guidance.

Can you at least show the link where you found this code?

How do you relate the form fields with the script? it would be kind of you if you show me an alternative other than PEAR

I saw the code and just download the PEAR package! I have it on my computer. I used it sometimes. It's very useful! You can just google to find another alternative with PHP mail SMTP or you can used the one from that site. It's like a regular email form!

<form action="" method="post" id="contactform">
                      <ul>

                <label for="name">First Name <span class="red">*</span></label>
                <input id="name" name="name" class="text" />
              </li><br/>
