|Summary||0019845: php mailer upgrade research|
|Description||Check what issues may arise from the upgrade. Major changes and the ones most likely to affect us.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Regarding the version that it's being used now, it is no longer being supported for feature updates, but at least it receives security updates in this branch: https://github.com/PHPMailer/PHPMailer/tree/5.2-stable .
I have been looking at using phpmailer 6 and there are fewer code changes than I expected.
But using phpmailer 6 will have a few important restrictions
phpmailer now requires php 5.5+
phpmailer and the phplist code changes are not backward-compatible with phpmailer 5
If phpmailer 6 is included in phplist then the first would require clear communication about the upgrade.
The second point is relevant because currently people can use a version of phpmailer different to that included in phplist by specifying it with the PHPMAILER_PATH constant.
I will push my changes then make a pull request for discussion.
||That's brilliant, thanks. We can run some tests and then move forward.|
