PHP Mail no longer available as Mailer transport in Mautic 3?

Hello all,

I’m testing version 3.1.1 and I’m surprised of not seeing PHP Mail as a mail transport neither in the installation wizard, nor in the Settings - Configuration - Service to send mail though option.

Is this option going to be available in Mautic 3? All my customer installs are configured with PHP Mail wihtout any issues in years!

Same for me. :frowning:

Actually, mails sent by PHP Mailer from a SPF-verified domain had higher acceptance rate than using SendGrid. It got less often into Spam. That means something! :slight_smile:

Do you have any news yourself, in the meantime, Alejandro?

Hi folks,

I responded to @alexrm1x (I assume it was you!) on LinkedIn:

Hi there, unfortunately PHP Mailer is no longer supported by the swiftmailer package so it had to be deprecated with the 3.0 release.

Here’s some further detail: - it was changed from mail to sendmail.


This morning, I checked out my other Mautic instance, which used PHP Mailer so far, and there “Sendmail” was selected. So, I figured out that must be the replacement for PHP Mailer.

Thanks for providing some more info.
