What is the best php code for auto mail? I am planning to make a website system that will accept some emails from a chat mate or a friend. Can I possibly make a php programming code for that kind of scenario?

Waiting for your support, thank you.

What is the best php code for auto mail?


There is a PHP code for Simple E-mail (Text E-mail) and Mail Forms.  You can do it and here’s how:

PHP mail has parts that are Required and Optional.

  • TO:  It is required.  Refers to the receiver or the one that will receive the e-mail.
  • SUBJECT:  It is required.  Refers to the subject or topic of the e-mail.  Take note that this parameter can’t contain any newline characters.
  • MESSAGE:  It is required.  Refers to the messages that will be sent.  Every line must be separated with a “LF(/n)”. Each line must not exceed 70 characters.
  • HEADERS:  It is optional.  Refers to additional headers, such as:  From, CC, and Bcc.  It should not be separated with CRLF (/r/n)
  • PARAMETERS:  It is optional.  Refers to any additional parameters to the send mail program.

For PHP Simple E-mail (Text E-mail), this is the simplest way to send an e-mail via PHP.

Here’s an example:

$to = "[email protected]";
$subject = "Test mail";
$message = "Hello! This is a simple email message.";
$from = "[email protected]";
$headers = "From:" . $from;
echo "Mail Sent.";

Where the variables are $to, $subject, $message, $from, $headers.  These variables are used in the mail () function to send e-mail.

Next is the PHP Mail Form.

Using PHP, you can make a feedback-form on your website.

Here’s an example:


if (isset($_REQUEST['email']))
//if "email" is filled out, send email
  //send email
  $email = $_REQUEST['email'] ;
  $subject = $_REQUEST['subject'] ;
  $message = $_REQUEST['message'] ;
  mail("[email protected]", $subject,
  $message, "From:" . $email);
  echo "Thank you for using our mail form";
//if "email" is not filled out, display the form
  echo "<form method='post' action='mailform.php'>
  Email: <input name='email' type='text' /><br />
  Subject: <input name='subject' type='text' /><br />
  Message:<br />
  <textarea name='message' rows='15' cols='40'>
  </textarea><br />
  <input type='submit' />


The above will perform the functions of:

  • Checking first if the e-mail input field is already filled out.
  • If it is not yet set; it will output the HTML form.
  • Otherwise, it will send the email from the form if it is set.
  • When you press “Submit”, the form will be filled out, the page will reload, it will see that the email input is set, and lastly, it will send the email.
