beginning_php thread: E-Mail without informing / notifying the user


Message #1 by "Vikas Athavale" <vikaspa@b...> on Thu, 5 Sep 2002 03:52:15
I want to send an e-mail without notifying the user.

Normally the 'Outlook Express ' e-mail program is opened up and user 
clicks on send to send the e-mail]

Further, if I have e-mail addresses on database, Can I send the e-mails 
similarly by just clcik of button ?

with regards

you can send an email any way you want
just call the mail() function;
you can even use a cron to run your mail script on a time basis.
mail("$email1,$email2,$email3.etc"," TITLE","MESSAGE
","From: ","Cc:");

Do you mean from the user's machine or your server? The former is 
client-side behaviour; the latter is easy to do from within your 
(server-side) PHP script.

And, technically, it's the default mail program that pops up. For many 
users that happens to be Outlook Express.
