Due to recent volumes of spam generated from PHP scripts, a new security update has been implemented that requires all emails generated from PHP to be authenticated with the mailserver.

If you already have a PHP form mail, it will stop functioning effective immedately. Please update your script. 

General guidelines:
  1. Create an email account in cPanel, eg: phpform@domain.co.tz
  2. Use PHPMailer class, https://github.com/Synchro/PHPMailer
  3. Use the username & password in your mail script
An example of authenticating with mailserver SMTP is available here: https://github.com/Synchro/PHPMailer/blob/master/examples/smtp.phps
