Adds SMTP support for sending e-mails using the PHPMailer library. Comes with detailed configuration instructions for how to use Google Mail as mail server.

The main differences to the SMTP Authentication Support module are:

  • This module uses the PHPMailer library itself, and the SMTP Authentication Support module has forked and includes the smtp and mail classes from PHPMailer library.
  • This module has support for improved bulk-mail performance through SMTP keep-alive connections (if supported by the mail server).
  • This module has a built-in e-mail rerouting option (useful during site building and development).
