Upgrading phpmailer would also fix other phpmailer bugs and add functionality currently missing. See:
There are probably more related reports that would support a phpmailer upgrade.

Yes, phpmailer 5.x includes "pop before smtp" authentification - this would allow (non-super) admins to have their mails sent out through their own domain SMTP servers if they set the bounce user and queuesmtp_user to be the same mailbox - this would possibly then alleviate the need for multiple parallel SMTP sending servers as each domain using the single PHPlist install could have their own admin with his/her own email domain and server credentials embedded.

In this scenario though, processqueue may need tweaked to allow simultaneous queue processes for the different domain SMTPs - I believe this is also available in phpmailer 5.x

that's too involved for testing, so marking for 2.11

Michiel - efficient and reliable mail send is THE core function of phpList, yet every ticket related to it, you either punt or refuse.

Are you happy shipping a defective product? Have you no intent to fix it?

sign up to hosted and it'll include phpMailer 5. I'm just not updating or responding in mantis very often. there's only 24 hours in a day.
