configuring emails to go through postmarkapp.com

I am using PowerMessanger 1.0.2 and I am using DataAssist to send emails out. I have my site on GoDaddy and their server is not great to have emails avoid spam flagging. I setup an account with postmarkapp.com. I can go through their server when sending emails. I can use smtp or API. Both PM and DataAssist allow me to ID an email server, but that is all. I also need to submit a port, user/pw and authentication with SMTP. How do I do this, or should I use the API, and if so, I do I set that up?

It would require hand coding to do this, since powermessenger uses php mail() by default, which cannot send email using an API or authenticated mail.

The easiest solution is probably to use PEAR if you can get it installed on your server. That way you could do authenticated mail through SMTP without using their API, which would be a lot more hand coding.

I think if you got PEAR installed you would be able to update the /webassist/email/mail_php.php file with the PEAR version, which I've attached. Then the only lines of code that would have to be hand edited would be the 6 files that begin with waue_ in the webassist/email folder.

You would just have to update line 15 of each of those files from:
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_Definition("".($WAGLOBAL_Email_Server) ."","25","","",$WAGLOBAL_Email_Use_Additional_Params,"utf-8");

to:
$WA_MailObject = WAUE_Definition("","".($WAGLOBAL_Email_Server) ."","25","serverUsername","serverPassword","true","","","utf-8");

and put in the username and password for the remote SMTP server to replace the placeholders I've added.

This is something we could help with in a premier support ticket if you needed assistance.

Thank you Ray. I don't have PEAR currently installed, but I saw the article below on how to install it and I created the install file "go-pear.php"uest in my domain root. But the questions they are asking are above my knowledge so I will request a pro-service session for help.

I was successful in getting php5.3 back up. But I had to edit the php5.ini manually to add the right path to PEAR. I see the "include_path" pointing to the folder PEAR said it was installed to and that is reflected on the phpinfo page. But there is not a new "section" for PEAR. Should there be?

Just to confirm, I replace the menu.php.php file by deleting it and renaming the file you sent (PEAR_Mail_using_SMTP_php.php) to menu.php.php and placed it in the same folder (/webassist/email/).

Finally, can you check the attached waue_nominate_1.php page please? Dreamweaver says there is a syntax error with the line you asked me to add.

I had a typo where I had typed two commas in a row when there should have been just one. Delete the repeated comma in that line.
