Email object


Is there any way for Universal Email (DataBridge) to use Hotmail/Gmail etc. smtp mail to send emails?
How should i do it as this would be the only way for me to send out emails locally.

Any step by step instruction would be helpfull.

i dont know about hotmail, but I have been able to use Gmail.

first, you will need to make sure that Pear Mail is installed in your testing server:

once you have Pear installed, in Universal Email select the Pear Mail using SMTP as the Email object.

for the SMTP Server, enter:


enter your gmail email address

enter your Gmail password

also, make sure that the from address is your gmail email address.

Dear Jason,

I got it to work as you mentioned, thanks!!

However the mail is send i still get below error message when testing the doubleOpt tutorial.

Strict standards: Non-static method Mail::factory() should not be called statically in C:\wamp\www\blueSky\webassist\email\PEAR_Mail_using_SMTP_php.php on line 190

Any idea why and how to solve?

this seams to be a bug that was reported on the Pear site with the Mail object on PHP 5 and having the strict error reporting level enabled



the email still sends though right?

to suppress the error till the Pear team can correct the problem, change line 190 of the PEAR_Mail_using_SMTP_php.php file:

$theMailer =& Mail::factory('smtp', $paramArray);


@$theMailer =& Mail::factory('smtp', $paramArray);
