Sorry I know this is basic, but I’m having a little trouble understanding how the whole email thing works.
Let’s just say I have an order-now page on my website. I have a working PHP form where a person can select the products they want, type in their contact information and hit submit. I receive the emails fine with the php mail() function. What I need to know is how do I send a copy of the email back to the person who placed the order?
The mail() function cannot work if the customer has a gmail account. And I need the customer to get a copy of the email no matter which email server they’re using…
I looked it up and all I can come up with is the php Mailer library where it’s possible to send FROM Gmail. But that’s not my problem - I already bought an email domain and I have no trouble sending emails from my web hosting server.
I don’t mind if you need some other language or library to do this, as long as I can get the email confirmation sent to the client automatically.
There aren’t tutorials or anything on the web with the keywords I’m using, so I’m a little stuck right now…
My test-website is currently live at www.unidrones.co.za/ChoiceGelatin/order.php if you need to have a look at it. I receive the emails fine, but I have absolutely no clue how to send the email back to the customer
Another question on the same topic, how do websites send such pretty promotion emails? According to what I heard, you have to style emails with inline CSS…Is this what every website does, or did I miss something?
Thanks so much in advance guys, I know this is a much too basic question but I simply can’t find the answer on my own
