This is basically updated wrapper of SwiftMailer which can be used as application component.
- Unzip extension contents to protected/extensions/ folder
- Set up yii component via config:
... 'mailer' => array( 'class' => 'ext.swiftMailer.SwiftMailer', // For SMTP 'mailer' => 'smtp', 'host'=>'localhost', 'From'=>'admin@localhost', 'username'=>'smptusername', 'password'=>'123456', // For sendmail: 'mailer'=>'sendmail', ), ...
Yii::app()->mailer->AddAddress($email); Yii::app()->mailer->Subject = "Let's do this!"; Yii::app()->mailer->MsgHTML("<a href='http://site.com'>test</a>"); Yii::app()->mailer->Send();
Please, take a look a SwiftMailer::Send() function

In what way is this different from this extension?
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.
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.
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:
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!
Nice wrapper. I like it.
Need a help
How can I use your extension with gmail ?
gmail use port 465 with ssl
Return me error "Process could not be started Impossibile trovare il percorso specificato."
Hi, extension is good but unfortunatly, it's not just possible to update the lib to the lastest version (4.2.1)
How to add attachment to letter?
plz show example
Is this upgradable to swiftmailer 4.3 ?
What if I need to update SwiftMailer to latest version !?
Hey guys, thank you for using this extension!
I'm happy to tell you that is just has been updated:
Secure SMTP support?
Can you add support for secure SMTP? Thanks!
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
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
Tsunami, SMTP support has been there foe a while - just set 'username', 'password', 'host' & 'port' parameters for extension component
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.
Sorry mate, I was in a bit of a hurry - I added secured SMTP support just as you suggested, and also fixed autoload issue
Thank you !
Thanks for autoload fix !!
And for versioning of file. It's usefull !!!
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.
Swiftmailer has been update at 4.3.1
Can, please, update the extension ?
Yor work is usefull and excellent !
Thank you again
auth mode is not present
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 ?
