 $mail = new PHPMailer();  
 $mail->IsSMTP();                                     // set mailer to use SMTP  
 $mail->Host = " ";              // specify main and backup server  
 $mail->SMTPAuth = true;                              // turn on SMTP authentication  
 $mail->Username = "<Your UserName>";         // SMTP username  
 $mail->Password = "<Your Password>";                    // SMTP password  
 $mail->From = "";  
 $mail->FromName = "";  
 $mail->AddAddress("", "Nikunj Kansara");  
 $mail->AddAddress("");            // name is optional  
 $mail->AddReplyTo("", "Information");  
 $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 = "Here is the subject";  
 $mail->Body     = "This is the HTML message body <b>in bold!</b>";  
 $mail->AltBody = "This is the body in plain text for non-HTML mail clients";  
   echo "Message could not be sent. <p>";  
   echo "Mailer Error: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;  
 echo "Message has been sent";
