Bluehost : Mailer Error: SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host

I am using the bluehost for my some sites hosting. For sending emails I used the SMTP service which is provided by bluehost.

Bluehost : Mailer Error: SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host

I used the PHPmailer in my website for sending email. When I tried to use the bluehost SMTP I always got the following error message.

Mailer Error: SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.”

I solved this issue. I created the following function.


<?php
include("class.phpmailer.php");

function mail_new($fun_to,$fun_subject,$fun_body,$fun_header,$fun_from,$fun_cc){
$mail = new PHPMailer();

$mail->IsSMTP();                                      // set mailer to use SMTP
$mail->Host = "mail.eparinay.com";  // specify main and backup server
//$mail->SMTPSecure = "ssl";                 // sets the prefix to the servier
$mail->SMTPAuth = true;     // turn on SMTP authentication
$mail->Username = "support@purabtech.in";  // SMTP username
$mail->Password = "YOURPSSSWORD"; // SMTP password
$mail->Port       = 26;

$mail->From = $fun_from;
$mail->FromName = "eparinay.com";
$mail->AddAddress($fun_to);
$mail->AddReplyTo($fun_from, $fun_from);

if($fun_cc!=""){
$mail->AddAddress($fun_cc);
}
$mail->WordWrap = 50;                                 // set word wrap to 50 characters
//$mail->AddAttachment("/var/tmp/file.tar.gz");         // add attachments
//$mail->AddAttachment("/tmp/image.jpg", "new.jpg");    // optional name
$mail->IsHTML(true);                                  // set email format to HTML

$mail->Subject = $fun_subject;
$mail->Body    = $fun_body;
//$mail->AltBody = "This is the body in plain text for non-HTML mail clients";

if(!$mail->Send())
{
echo "Message could not be sent. <p>";
echo "Mailer Error: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;
exit;
}
}
?>

Where you want to use the mail you just need to include the above script and call the “mail_new” function for sending email through bluehost.
