I hope you're doing well. I'm currently working on a PHP project where I need to send emails using SMTP connections. I have implemented the necessary code using the PHPMailer library, and it's working fine. However, I'm concerned about handling exceptions that may occur during the email sending process or SMTP connection.
My main concern is what happens if there is an issue with the SMTP server, or if the email is not sent successfully due to some error. I want to make sure that I can catch and handle these exceptions properly in my code.
I have heard about try-catch blocks in PHP, but I'm not sure if they can be used in this scenario. Can I use try-catch blocks to handle exceptions thrown during email sending or SMTP connections in PHP? If so, how should I structure my code?
I would appreciate any advice or examples on how to handle these exceptions properly. Thank you in advance for your help!
