As I said in the section that you just read, the Swift Mailer library permits you to send blind carbon copies of an email message in a very simple manner, as one would normally expect from a high-quality package. Performing this task is as easy as invoking a new method called "setBcc()" with the email address and name of the corresponding recipient of the copy.
However, the best way to understand how this handy method works is by example, so below I coded one for you. Have a look at it:
// example on sending a basic email message with Swift Mailer (uses the 'setCc() and 'setBcc() methods')
// include required files
// create the mail transport using the 'newInstance()' method
$transport = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance('mail.domain.com', 25)
// create the mailer using the 'newInstance()' method
$mailer = Swift_Mailer::newInstance($transport);
// create a simple message using the 'newInstance()' method
$message = Swift_Message::newInstance()
// specify the subject of the message
->setSubject('Testing Swift Mailer')
// specify the From argument
->setFrom(array('email@example.com' => 'Alejandro Gervasio'))
// specify the To argument
->setTo(array('firstname.lastname@example.org' =>' John Doe'))
->setCc(array('email@example.com' => 'Mary Jackson'))
->setBcc(array('firstname.lastname@example.org' => 'Susan Norton'))
// build the body part of the message
->setBody('Hey, how are you? I am sending you a message with the cool Swift Mailer library');
Didn't I tell you that attaching a blind carbon copy to an email message was a breeze with Swift Mailer? Well, the above example proves that I was right. As you can see, before building the body part of the message, the "setBcc()" method is used for specifying the email address and the name of the recipient of the copy, which is very similar to the process performed when sending normal copies.
But, wait a minute! The previous example is actually is incomplete. It's not really sending any messages, because the corresponding "send()" method is not invoked at any point. So, in the final section I'm going to add to the script that missing part, thus completing the development of this example.
If you want to see how the example will look when finished, simply go ahead and read the following section. It's only one click away.
