A Release Candidate for upcoming phpList 3.4.8 is now available for testing.

Changes to test

On this release candidate support for phpMailer 6 is added – thanks to @duncanc.

Among other changes, PHPMailer 6 now requires php 5.5+
and it uses namespaces, which makes it backwards-incompatible.

Changes implemented by @duncan to the PHPlistMailer class make it possible to use either PHPMailer version 5 or version 6 depending on a config setting (default values is set to “false”).*

To use PHPMailer 6 add the line below on your config.php. If you want to switch back to using PHPMailer 5 just remove the line.

define('USE_PHPMAILER6', true);

If you want to check the changes in more details please refer to the pull request and the mantis issue.

For more information on changes introduced on PHPMailer you can check their changelog here.
