How to configure phpmailer

Hi guys,

I had my website in a certain hosting and used mail() for the contact us page.
I changed hosting and the new one is asking me to use phpmailer instead of mail().
I am using Google as e-mail server.

He sent me a RAR package with three files:

  • class.phpmailer.php
  • class.smtp.php
  • index.php

He said I have lo see index.php to check how this function works. Here the code of this file:

$mail = new PHPMailer();
$mail->IsSMTP(); //Establece que el correo para enviar el mensaje a es través de SMTP, Si se establece en true, otras opciones también están disponibles. (verdadero, falso o en blanco)
$mail->SMTPAuth = true; // True para que verifique autentificación de la cuenta o de lo contrario False
//$mail->SMTPSecure = “ssl”;
$mail->Host = “”;///* Sustituye (ServidorDeCorreoSMTP) por el host de tu servidor de correo SMTP*/
$mail->Port = 25;//puerto***
$mail->Username = “”;
$mail->Password = “123456”;

$mail->From = “”;
$mail->FromName = “prueba”;
$mail->Subject = “prueba”;
$mail->cuerpo = “esto es una prueba”;
$mail->AddAddress(“”,“Nombre a mostrar del Destinatario”);

$mail->WordWrap = 50;

$body = “Hola, este es un…”;
$mail->IsHTML(true);//Para indicar si el mensaje contiene HTML:
$mail->Body = $body;
// Notificamos al usuario del estado del mensaje

if(!$mail->Send()) {
echo "Error: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;
} else {
echo “Mensaje enviado correctamente”;

I have unsuccessfully tried to make this function works.

Could you please let me know how to configure this file, and also how to use the other two files?
Where should I save them and how should I call this function from my website?

Thanks a lot!!!

Checking out Google I found the home page for phpmailer at
There are some links to tutorials there.

Also loads of other links including this one for gmail:
