Getting strange PHPGmailer smtp error

How do I managed to get email activation working using php gmailer I have tried out many options for this to get enable, when I tried to prints out the url as text and not a link it doesn't happen so. I have read that removing the <a> tag will solve the problem and hence I have since removed the <a> around the url to make it easier I am here asking for suggestions. I am trying to figure out how to put phpgmailer into a html form.

Re: Getting strange PHPGmailer smtp error

Form elements are elements that allow the user to enter information (like text fields, textarea fields, drop-down menus, radio buttons, checkboxes, etc.) in a form. The php script had to do was to connect to the smtp server and send the email respecting the protocol. The server just had to support secure sockets connections.

Re: Getting strange PHPGmailer smtp error

PHP Mailer send mails in plain text , by default, you need to tell it that you're going to send an HTML email by using $mail->IsHTML(true), then you can use anchor tags. To create the HTML form, following is the HTML code.

Code:
<form>
First name:
<input type="text" name="firstname" />
<br />
Last name:
<input type="text" name="lastname" />
</form>
Since some email clients do not support HTML, and some users turn off HTML support on those that do for security, its best to also send the message in plain text.

To do this, you can?t expect that the server where your php scripts are running has the capacity to send emails. So to find a solution, I first search for an email provider. This will work for any GMail or Google Hosted email account. Just make sure to include the @domain.com part for the username, even if it?s for standard GMail.
