I’m new to 000webhost.com and have a free hosting account. I would like to add member registration and weekly emails. The registration function would require a validation email to be sent. I’ve read many posts saying that smtp access is blocked from webhost for free account members, and I’ve read other posts saying that smtp access is not blocked. Can anybody tell me for sure whether or not I can use gmail smtp with phpMailer in a free account in 2017? If so, what’s the best way to use phpMailer to connect with gmail?
