Opinions: Sending Data Via Email


Im going to start sending reminders and data etc via email to users based on triggers, I was wondering if there’s a native Yii way [I guess it uses php mail()] or if there’s a tried and loved Extension… lately i’ve been PHP’ing alot, just to get stuff done.

I’ve seen SimpleMailer “A KISS* solution for emailing your users” <- sounds good!

I’d like to have some steerage please.


This is a CRON based solution - http://www.yiiframework.com/forum/index.php/topic/36942-creating-a-common-mail-queue/page__view__findpost__p__178663


I use http://www.yiiframework.com/extension/phpmailer/ which does the job for me (using SSL to gmail smtp server).

Since SimpleMailer uses static functions like SimpleMailer::send() or SimpleMailer::enqueue(), you can put them in your Yii events - I’m,supposing that you meant ‘events’ when you said ‘triggers’.

Kinda late for a reply, however I wanted to add my two cents.
