  • Anyone use PHPMailer?

    I was thinking about trying it out for a contact form. Looks like it supports SMTP Authentication, but it looks like you have to put your user id and password in a publicly viewable php file. Am I missing something here?

    I dislike phpmailer because historically it is the highest target for hacking.

    I use dd-formmailer instead. I've yet to be hacked using it.

    if the SMTP authentication is in a php script, if the person tried to access it directly or download it without server credentials all they get is blank screen or limited html code. Not the passwords.
