The SocketLabs Email Delivery PHP library allows you to easily send any type of email message supported by our Injection API, from a simple message to a single recipient, to a complex bulk message sent to multiple recipients.

Send Bulk Email Without Having to Build & Maintain Your Own SMTP Email Servers

Basic Message

A basic message is an email message like you’d send from a personal email client such as Outlook. A basic message can have many recipients, including multiple, To Addresses, CC Addresses, and even BCC Addresses. You can also send a file attachment in a basic message.

$client = new SocketLabsClient(exampleConfig::000001, "YOUR-API-KEY"); 
$message = new BasicMessage(); 

$message->subject = "Sending A Basic Message";
$message->htmlBody = "<html>This is the Html Body of my message.</html>";
$message->plainTextBody = "This is the Plain Text Body of my message.";

$message->from = new EmailAddress("[email protected]");
$message->replyTo = new EmailAddress("[email protected]");

//A basic message supports up to 50 recipients and supports several different ways to add recipients
$message->addToAddress("[email protected]"); //Add a To address by passing the email address
$message->addCcAddress("[email protected]", "Recipient #2"); //Add a CC address by passing the email address and a friendly name
$message->addBccAddress(new EmailAddress("[email protected]")); //Add a BCC address by passing an EmailAddress object
$response = $client->send($message);


Bulk Message

A bulk message usually contains a single recipient per message and is generally used to send the same content to many recipients, optionally customizing the message via the use of MergeData.

$client = new SocketLabsClient(000001, "YOUR-API-KEY"); //Your SocketLabs ServerId and Injection API key
//Build the message
$message = new BulkMessage();
$message->subject = "Sending A Bulk Message";
$message->htmlBody = "<html>This is the Html Body of my message sent to the recipient with %%EyeColor%% eyes.</html>";
$message->plainTextBody = "This is the Plain Text Body of my message sent to the recipient with %%EyeColor%% eyes.";
$message->from = new EmailAddress("[email protected]");
$message->replyTo = new EmailAddress("[email protected]");

//Add Bulk Recipients
$recipient1 = $message->addToAddress("[email protected]", "Recipient #1");
$recipient1->addMergeData("EyeColor", "Green");

$recipient2 = $message->addToAddress("[email protected]", "Recipient #2");
$recipient2->addMergeData("EyeColor", "Blue");

//Create the client and send the message
$response = $client->send($message);
