About modSwiftMailer

modSwiftMailer is a MODX Revolution native extension on the modMail object and is based on the open-source project "Swift Mailer".

As PHPMailer is now, at best, a poorly maintained project with limited flexability when it comes down to the basics of sending mail, Swift Mailer is your best option and is nowadays preferred. Since Swift Mailer sends it's mail up to 3 times faster than PHPMailer, is also is the ideal library to use when your site sends multiple (50 and above) e-mails per day.

Please note that modSwiftMailer is not a MODX native extension and is maintained and further developed by a 3rdparty (me). Any bugs and other irregularities should and will have to be reported to me.
