$mail->addAddress("xxxxxx", "Recepient Name");
$mail->Subject = "Subject Text";
$mail->Body = "<i>Mail body in HTML</i>";
$mail->AltBody = "This is the plain text version of the email content";
    echo "sent";
    echo "sorry";


I don’t know if you testing this out on a local server or not, but trying something like the following might help.

if (filter_input(INPUT_SERVER, 'SERVER_NAME', FILTER_SANITIZE_URL) == "localhost") {
  $mail->isSmtp(); // Local Host:
  $mail->Port = EMAIL_PORT; // Local Host Port: (Usually 587)
} else {
  $mail->isSendMail(); // Remote Host:

the rest of the code that you have with except of the port and isSmtp();

Try to add

$mail->SMTPDebug = 2;

to get more details about the error

hello thanks foe the reply now i have this error ‘Mailer Error: Extension missing: openssl’
