PHPMailer 6.5.1 has just been released and includes preliminary PHP 8.1 support, as well as some small bugfixes.

The version included with WP should be updated.

Full details:

I've reviewed the (code, not test) diff and would strongly recommend an update at the earliest convenience. Second opinion appreciated though as I made a significant number of the code changes, so I'm biased. 😁

@SergeyBiryukov Cricky! You're fast with these external library updates 😁

FYI: once PHPCompatibility 10.0 has been released, PHPMailer will inline the relevant phpcs:ignore statements as well, so after that, the update should be even easier ;-)
