    OK.  But what actual error was that file causing?  It's possible that someone might be able to help you with that. 
    Note that while Stewart has not gotten it working by following those instructions, he has gotten it working by jamming the contents of the file in a different location.  It does still require installing PHPMailer and configuring it.  I know nothing about configuring PHPMailer, so I can't give you any guidance with that.  But still, someone else might be able to do so.  For example, Stewart did apparently get that part of it working. 
    This seems more like a hosting problem.  I have certainly sent emails to my gmail address through a sendmail executable.  If your host doesn't support that, I would recommend switching hosts to one that does.  Note that talking about non-SMTP emails is simply nonsense.  All emails are SMTP.  The difference is the three kinds of access to SMTP.  The sendmail kind is a local executable on the PHP server.  The "SMTP" kind is a local SMTP server on the PHP server (primarily for Windows).  The authenticated kind is a remote SMTP server.  So what your host is saying is that rather than handling the authentication for you, they want you to authenticate manually.  Because that's less work for them.  I'd suggest saving them even more work and switching to a different host.  Note that two of the certified developers are associated with hosting services. 
    Eventually, I'm sure that someone is going to have to spend resources to get authenticated SMTP working.  There seems to be a hope that "someone" will be either me or Burt.  But even if it was, then I can tell you, that it would be released as a supporters' code rather than in core.  So it might be better to approach one of the certified developers about it.  As they are more likely to simply update the existing authenticated SMTP App with PHPMailer to work with Phoenix.  It shouldn't even be that difficult, as I already rewrote and posted the code to do it.  So what's left is essentially writing the instructions for installing and configuring PHPMailer and bundling the files properly. 
    Rainer supports a large number of legacy Apps that are no longer supported by their writers.  John has experience with custom email configuration.  Preston likes to write Javascript package installers.  It's possible that any or all of them might be interested in that kind of project. 
    Another alternative would be filing a feature request with PHP.  There is of course no reason why they couldn't implement authenticated SMTP in PHP itself.  Then you would just have to configure it properly and you'd be able to use the mail function normally with a remote SMTP server.  That would fix not just this software but PHP software in general.

    The file absolutely works!  Thanks so much. You were right Matt that I will need to do some configuring to get Phoenix to switch to the override/email.php file.  I am here to learn so I will give it a try.  Also for anyone else wanting to do this, in the My Store configuration you need to change the "email from" setting  "your name" <info@ yourstore> to info@yourstore.  The reply-to's have to match.

    HI,
    First of all a big thanks to @burt and all the other contributors to Phoenix. 
    I did a clean DB install and moved my old data over without a hitch. It was easy thanks to you! 
    Has anyone set up SMTP mail with authentication successfully on Phoenix 1.0.5.0?
    I'm on IIS and don't have the sendmail option.
    I've had it running in 2.2 and I had it running in 234BS.
    I'm an amateur and I have looked through previous addons to see if there is anything I can adapt to Phoenix. 
    The code has obviously changed, in /includes/email.php and admin doesn't seem to have a classes/email.php either.
    I've looked at both general.php files and see that the call to send mail is there but no if (EMAIL_TRANSPORT == 'smtp') in any of the files.
    I've installed the latest PHPmailer.  I've changed $PHPmailer to $pmail as per the documentation.
    I've been at this for over a week and I'm stuck.
    Can anyone advise?
    Thanks
    Stewart

    It's sad to see such negativity emanating from certain posters.  The snide comments, the PM messages, the emails, the fake likes.  It's tiresome.

    I personally have a ton of gratitude for the work and the teaching the coders have done in this forum for years.  I am not a coder, but I have always patched my store myself using the information available on the forums. I've even learned to figure a lot of the stuff out on my own too.  I just took a leap of faith and jumped from 234bs to Phoenix 1.0.5.0. because I like the direction that Phoenix is taking and I needed to move forward.   I am getting the Phoenix core code for free.  A lot of people have worked hard on it and it's still free.  Part of the deal is that I have to learn new stuff.
    Yes, folks, it's still free thanks to the coders.
    Thanks, to everyone involved in the project!
