Marcus' home page

Hi there. I'm Marcus Bointon.

When I'm not skiing, I'm working on – the only privacy-first email marketing service, supporting 1CRM, writing & pentesting for Radically Open Security, or acting as a DPO, I'm the maintainer of PHPMailer, probably the world's most popular email sending code. I've also answered a thousand questions about PHPMailer on Stack Overflow. I'm a contributor to many other open-source projects, and I wrote the HTML5 email address specification. I'm a co-developer of a local private social network in Chamonix, France. I'm an accomplished PHP coder, Linux sysadmin, technical writer/editor, and MySQL DBA. I'm a strong advocate of digital rights and privacy – I love GDPR! I've been speaking at technical conferences around the world since 2006, mainly on security, privacy, and email. I live in the French 🇫🇷 alps 🏔 with my wife 👩🏻, kids 👦🏼👧🏻, cat 🐱, guitars 🎸, bikes 🚵, and far too many skis 🎿.

If my code or answers have helped you, please sponsor me on GitHub, Patreon, or get your company to sponsor Open Source on TideLift.

  • ⁉️ Ask me a question on Stack Overflow
  • 📘 Read my blog
  • 🎸 Write a song with me – I like writing songs about open source, and I'm looking for collaborators, especially people that can sing!
  • Come skiing with me! Really! If you happen to be skiing near Combloux, Megève, Flaine, Les Carroz, Chamonix, Morzine/Avoriaz/Les Gets, Samoëns, La Clusaz, drop me a note and I'll try not to scare you too much 😅
