This is an emailing extension that wraps SwiftMailer. This extension also allows you to create emails from view files. For more information about SwiftMailer can do, see http://swiftmailer.org
Please see the phpdocs (it is in fact well-documented). First read through the main phpdoc on the Mail.php file and then the Message.php file (both in the root directory).
This is an advanced example. It is not required that you use view files to generate the emails.
$message = new YiiMailMessage; $message->view = 'registrationFollowup'; //userModel is passed to the view $message->setBody(array('userModel'=>$userModel), 'text/html'); $message->addTo($userModel->email); $message->from = Yii::app()->params['adminEmail']; Yii::app()->mail->send($message);
