How can you send email from localhost to server in Codeigniter 4

Sending email in Codeigniter 4 is very easy because of the new functionality, Now the stable version of the Codeigniter available to download from the official website.

They have introduced the services classes to use the Codeigniter 4 services like email; you just call the services in Codeigniter by using this code.

Make sure I have created the email using Cpanel, and I am using the same email and password here in this article.

\Config\Services::serviceName();
// i.e  \Config\Services::email();

 

In this segment, you should know how to use it; you can send the email from your website/localhost to the user/client using Codeigniter 4, so before using the email library, you need to see the library setting in Codeigniter 4.

Step 1: Go to the app/config/Email.php and open the file

Step 2: Update the Email setting by this code.

 

<?php
namespace Config;

use CodeIgniter\Config\BaseConfig;

class Email extends BaseConfig
{

  /**
   * @var string
   */
  public $fromEmail;

  /**
   * @var string
   */
  public $fromName;

  /**
   * @var string
   */
  public $recipients;

  /**
   * The "user agent"
   *
   * @var string
   */
  public $userAgent = 'CodeIgniter';

  /**
   * The mail sending protocol: mail, sendmail, smtp
   *
   * @var string
   */
  public $protocol = 'smtp';

  /**
   * The server path to Sendmail.
   *
   * @var string
   */
  public $mailPath = '/usr/sbin/sendmail';

  /**
   * SMTP Server Address
   *
   * @var string
   */
  public $SMTPHost='mail.shakzee.com';

  /**
   * SMTP Username
   *
   * @var string
   */
  public $SMTPUser = 'abcd@shakzee.com';

  /**
   * SMTP Password
   *
   * @var string
   */
  public $SMTPPass = 'YourPasswordHere

 

Step 3: Now go to your controller/method and just use/call the library/class

public function yourMethod(){
   $message = "Please activate the account ".anchor('user/activate/'.$data['u_link'],'Activate Now','');
   $email = \Config\Services::email();
   $email->setFrom('ci4signup@shakzee.com', 'your Title Here');
   $email->setTo($data['u_email']);
   $email->setSubject('Your Subject here | shakzee.com');
   $email->setMessage($message);//your message here

   $email->setCC('another@emailHere');//CC
   $email->setBCC('thirdEmail@emialHere');// and BCC
   $filename = '/img/yourPhoto.jpg'; //you can use the App patch 
   $email->attach($filename);
   
   $email->send();
   $email->printDebugger(['headers']);
}

 

<?php
namespace Config;

use CodeIgniter\Config\BaseConfig;

class Email extends BaseConfig

   public $wordWrap = true;

   /**
    * Character count to wrap at
    *
    * @var integer
    */
   public $wrapChars = 76;

   /**
    * Type of mail, either 'text' or 'html'
    *
    * @var string
    */
   public $mailType = 'html';

   /**
    * Character set (utf-8, iso-8859-1, etc.)
    *
    * @var string
    */
   public $charset = 'UTF-8';

   /**
    * Whether to validate the email address
    *
    * @var boolean
    */
   public $validate = false;

   /**
    * Email Priority. 1 = highest. 5 = lowest. 3 = normal
    *
    * @var integer
    */
   public $priority = 3;

   /**
    * Newline character. (Use “\r\n” to comply with RFC 822)
    *
    * @var string
    */
   public $CRLF = "\r\n";

   /**
    * Newline character. (Use “\r\n” to comply with RFC 822)
    *
    * @var string
    */
   public $newline = "\r\n";

   /**
    * Enable BCC Batch Mode.
    *
    * @var boolean
    */
   public $BCCBatchMode = false;

   /**
    * Number of emails in each BCC batch
    *
    * @var integer

   public $BCCBatchSize = 200;

   /**
    * Enable notify message from server
    *
    * @var boolean
    */
   public $DSN = false;

}

 

Step 3: Now go to your controller/method and just use/call the library/class
