sending EMail Problem


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a custom form (module) that a customer would fill up, and then send email , current I just used to input form and a submit button, when click there is no error,but no email sent or receive.


**Note: this is similar to send a friend module (but I am planning to ad more input form)


this  is my display.tpl


<script type="text/javascript">
var name1 = $('#name1').val();
var email = $('#email').val();
if (name1 && email)
type: "POST",
headers: {"cache-control": "no-cache"},
data: {action: 'sendQuote', name1:name1, email:email},
dataType: "json",
success: function(result){
This is Lumberyard
<form method="post" action="{request_uri}" class="lmbr">
{l s="Name"} <input id="name1" name="name1" type="text" name="name1" value="" size="14" />
{l s="Name"} <input id="email" name="email" type="text" name="email" value="" size="20" />
<input id="sendQuote" class="button" name="sendQuote" type="submit" value="Send Quotation" />
and this is my quotation ajax
$module = new MyModule();
if (Tools::getValue('action') == 'sendQuote')
$name1 = Tools::getValue('name1');
$email = Tools::getValue('email');
$name1 = 'Name1';
$email = 'email';
$templateVars = array(
'{name1}' => Tools::safeOutput($name1),
'{email}' => Tools::safeOutput($email)
if (!Mail::Send((int)$module->context->cookie->id_lang,
$templateVars, $email,
($module->context->cookie->email ? $module->context->cookie->email : null),
I am also attaching my complete module for your reference

You do not need init.php since it is depricated. The syntax for sending mails:


$mail = Mail::Send((int)(Configuration::get('PS_LANG_DEFAULT')),
         {smartyname} => {value}
       "{receivername}", "{sender}", "{sendername}", "{attachments}", "{SMTP mode (true/false)}", "{template directory}");
Also you can look at the returnvalue of the mail variable ($mail = Mail::send).
Also try and test if your shop can send mail. Make a test order and see if you get feedback

thanks for the reply, I will check this out, but somehow I have a related issue, it seems that when posting via javascript, it is having an error like

POST: <url> 404 (not Found)


from what i have understand on error,it cannot find the file(php file),but when i check the url, where my javascript will supposed to POST , the file is there

Thanks for helping out,


I manage to solve Post method problem from javascript by correcting the right path where my php file is located like " url : '{$base_dir}modules/modulename/file-name.php' "

and using the Send mail syntax that "jsmit2" posted I was able to send an email.
