Yii 1.1: wkd-swiftmailer

SwiftMailer wrapper http://swiftmailer.org/

This is basically updated wrapper of SwiftMailer which can be used as application component.


  1. Unzip extension contents to protected/extensions/ folder
  2. Set up yii component via config:
'mailer' => array(
    'class' => 'ext.swiftMailer.SwiftMailer',
    // For SMTP
    'mailer' => 'smtp',
    // For sendmail:


Yii::app()->mailer->Subject = "Let's do this!";
Yii::app()->mailer->MsgHTML("<a href='http://site.com'>test</a>");

Please, take a look a SwiftMailer::Send() function

auth mode is not present

Hi, In the smtp, you may have to auth: "The authentication mode to use when using smtp as the transport. Valid values are plain, login, cram-md5, or null."

I can't see in the param, a auth param...

Do I misunderstand something or there is something to add to the plugin ?

A few other tips:

I would remove the goto and just use an else, it's limiting the extension to PHP 5.3. And maybe add support for CC, BCC, Reply To etc.

Sorry mate, I was in a bit of a hurry - I added secured SMTP support just as you suggested, and also fixed autoload issue

Secure SMTP

I said secure SMTP, there's no support for SSL or TLS. I even linked to the page that describes it and wrote the code for you to copy and paste into your class.

Hey guys, thank you all for comments & email — I've moved this project to Github so it is easily maintained - https://github.com/Webkadabra/Yii-SwiftMailer

PS Tsunami, SMTP support has been there foe a while - just set 'username', 'password', 'host' & 'port' parameters for extension component

Thanks for upgrade !

Thank you developer for updating ! Thank you a lot !

Just a 'little thing': add versioning to extension zip file name, so we can easily check out extension version (It's usefull while maintaining a very large project with a lot of extension), and a changelog with dates on the post test

Secure SMTP support?

Can you add support for secure SMTP? Thanks!

 * SMTP security
public $security;
public function smtpTransport($host = null, $port = null, $security = null)
    return Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance($host, $port, $security);
protected function loadTransport()
    if ($this->mailer == 'smtp') {
        $transport = self::smtpTransport($this->host, $this->port, $this->security);

Why I did this

Guys, the main purpose of me writing this extension is because my app used available "mailer" extension which used PHPMailer, but I had problems with sending mail by SMTP via PHPmailer, so i did this extension that does not change the way my app sends emails:

Yii::app()->mailer->Subject = $newslettersOne['name'];

But it changes how the mail gets sent. Available SwiftMailer extensions did not allow me just to change extension I use for "mailer" component -- they all suggest a lot (more then 1 byte is a lot) of code to alter in my controllers and other places - I did bot need that, I just needed to change the mailer itself, so I wrote this extension, and shared it here mainly because I believe I might be not the only one with the same issues.

Thank you, love and peace to all!

I like this!

I am a big fan of the 'other' extension, but I appreciate that this is trying to be as lean as possible. I might switch to this one instead. :)

You can still use templates: Just render to a string, and pass it in. Easy as that.

I'd say it's different in a way of being different. The example code is all you need to send email. No templates, though no extra code to write. It is just a sender, it's not supposed to support templates.
