You can't copy files into the system pear extension directory, because you don't have root privileges on your shared server.

If you need to install pear extensions, then please use this procedure in our documentation: Installing and Using PEAR Packages

That said, you can probably use PHPMailer without "installing" it as such. Just put it in a directory somewhere, and add that directory to your include_path.

Hope that helps!
