SSL PHP Mailer?
alisonsparties said 1 year, 7 months ago:
I have purchased SSL cert, and would like to be able to pass form data to a PHP mailer, which would then send encrypted mail to the address of my choice (Godaddy email account would be fine). I can send unencrypted messages via relay-hosting.secureserver.net, but it doesn’t seem to work when I specify ssl port 465, or any kind of smtp authentication either. I am using the PEAR mail package. Is there any way at all to have a web app send encrypted mail from a shared hosting site?

You will be unable to send emails through our relay-hosting.secureserver.net relay server using SSL within our shared hosting environment.
To have this ability, you would need to look into our virtual dedicated or dedicated server options.

Based on the response above, can you please clarify/confirm when e-mail is sent securely/encrypted as of 5/2012 (“secure”/”not secure” suffices for each point), assuming Godaddy Shared Web Hosting and Godaddy Email Hosting (and based on the latter, using a Godaddy _from_ e-mail address)?
a) PHP mail()
b) PHP PEAR mail package (specifying smtpout.secureserver.net & port 465)
c) PHP Form Mailers (webformmailer.php and gdform.php)
d) Godaddy Webmail
e) Mail sent via an e-mail client application (assuming the SSL option is set/port 465 is specified)
Thank you for your help/clarification!

There is no way to send email from our shared hosting service using SSL. When sending from an email client, you will have the option to use SSL when connecting to our outgoing mail server. Since emails sent from our Web-Based Email are being sent in network, an SSL is not required to connect Web-Based Email to the outgoing mail server.
