* This example shows how to send a message to a whole list of recipients efficiently.
//Import the PHPMailer class into the global namespace
use PHPMailer\PHPMailer\PHPMailer;
error_reporting(E_STRICT | E_ALL);
require '../vendor/autoload.php';
$mail = new PHPMailer;
$body = file_get_contents('contents.html');
$mail->Host = '';
$mail->SMTPAuth = true;
$mail->SMTPKeepAlive = true; // SMTP connection will not close after each email sent, reduces SMTP overhead
$mail->Port = 25;
$mail->Username = '';
$mail->Password = 'yourpassword';
$mail->setFrom('', 'List manager');
$mail->addReplyTo('', 'List manager');
$mail->Subject = "PHPMailer Simple database mailing list test";
//Same body for all messages, so set this before the sending loop
//If you generate a different body for each recipient (e.g. you're using a templating system),
//set it inside the loop
//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!';
//Connect to the database and select the recipients from your mailing list that have not yet been sent to
//You'll need to alter this to match your database
$mysql = mysqli_connect('localhost', 'username', 'password');
mysqli_select_db($mysql, 'mydb');
$result = mysqli_query($mysql, 'SELECT full_name, email, photo FROM mailinglist WHERE sent = FALSE');
foreach ($result as $row) {
$mail->addAddress($row['email'], $row['full_name']);
if (!empty($row['photo'])) {
$mail->addStringAttachment($row['photo'], 'YourPhoto.jpg'); //Assumes the image data is stored in the DB
if (!$mail->send()) {
echo "Mailer Error (" . str_replace("@", "&#64;", $row["email"]) . ') ' . $mail->ErrorInfo . '<br />';
break; //Abandon sending
} else {
echo "Message sent to :" . $row['full_name'] . ' (' . str_replace("@", "&#64;", $row['email']) . ')<br />';
//Mark it as sent in the DB
