Recently, we need to use the email function, which was originally sent using mail() function that comes with PHP. php mail() this method is very simple, convenient and easy to use. However, except netease mailbox, QQ mailbox, GMAIL mailbox and other commonly used mailboxes can be received, HOTMAIL, TOM, LIVE and other mailboxes can not receive this kind of mail after testing. So I turned to PHPMailer, the powerful mail-sending class.
Use some examples that come with the official version. Some will quote Mailer Error: Could not instantiate mail function. This is a mistake. After referring to some of the information, or write their own method. The code is simple enough to explain.

function mailto($nickname, $address, $id, $activation_code)

 $mail = new PHPMailer(); // defaults to using php "mail()"
 $mail->Host = "";   // SMTP  The server   
 $mail->SMTPAuth = true;              //  Open the SMTP  certification   
 $mail->Username = "";  //  The user name 
 $mail->Password = "yourpassword";          //  password   

 //$body = file_get_contents('application/views/nmra/register.html');
 //$body = preg_replace('/\\\\/','', $body); //Strip backslashes
 $body = '<p><body style="margin: 10px;"></p>';
 $body .= '<div style="width: 640px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; ">';
 $body .= '<div align="center"><img src="images/phpmailer.gif" style="height: 90px; width: 340px"></div>';
 $body .= '<p>'.$nickname.' Hello,. </p>';
 $body .= '<p> Congratulations on becoming the first member of the Concise Society for The Study of Modern Magic '.$id.' Members. </p>';
 $body .= '<p> Association for the Study of Modern Magic ( NowaMagic Research Association ) is 1 A community of programming apes, siege lions, design lions and developers for technical exchange and topic discussion. I hope you can find interesting topics and like-minded friends here. </p>';
 $body .= ' Please click the following link to verify your email address, please note that the domain name is : <a href=""'.$activation_code.'" target="_blank">'.$activation_code.'</a>';
 $body .= '<p> I wish work and study happy, life comfortable. </p>';
 $body .= '</div></body>';
 //echo $body;
 $mail->SetFrom('', 'Gonn');
 $address = "";
 //$address = "";
 $mail->AddAddress($address, $nickname);

 $subject = " Receive an email from Concise Modern Magic ";
 $mail->Subject = "=?UTF-8?B?".base64_encode($subject)."?=";
 // optional, comment out and test
 $mail->AltBody = "To view the message, please use an HTML compatible email viewer!"; 

 //$mail->AddAttachment("images/phpmailer.gif");      // attachment
 //$mail->AddAttachment("images/phpmailer_mini.gif"); // attachment

 if(!$mail->Send()) {
  //echo "Mailer Error: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;
 else {
  //echo "Message sent!";
