Update to class_phpmailer.php in WordPress 3.6 broke email sending on server using mini_sendmail

I have a client that is hosted on a server that uses mini_sendmail and after upgrading their WordPress install to version 3.6 all email functionality from WordPress stopped working.

I reverted to using the class_phpmailer.php file from WordPress version 3.5.2 and the email functionality started working again.

  • Component changed from Mail to External Libraries

Per https://code.google.com/a/apache-extras.org/p/phpmailer/issues/detail?id=75, PHPMailer 5.2.1 appears to be affected, however that is the version used in 3.4 and 3.5 (see #19887, #21074).

Could you test the patch added to #25014, which updates php_mailer to the latest version 5.2.6? It would be great to know if the latest version solves this issue.

I updated the php_mailer version to 5.2.6 and that seemed to fix the issue.
