Integrate Mailazy with CakePHP

CakePHP comes with an email library that supports SMTP. You can check CakePHP documentation page for more details. We have developed an example that shows how to send an email with both HTML and text bodies.

In app/views/layouts/ you need to define the layout of your text and HTML emails:

email/
html/
default.ctp
text/
default.ctp

In app/views/layouts/email/text/default.ctp add:

< ?php echo  $content_for_layout; ?>

and in app/views/layouts/email/html/default.ctp add:

< ?php echo  $content_for_layout; ?>

Then create the template for your emails.

In this example we created templates for a Login email with the following structure:

app/
views/
elements/
email/
text/
registration.ctp
html/
registration.ctp

In app/views/elements/email/text/registration.ctp add:

Dear < ?php echo $name ?>,

Thank you for Login. Please go to http://domain.com to finish your registration.

and in app/views/layouts/email/html/default.ctp add:

Dear < ?php echo $name ?>,

Thank you for registering. Please go to here to finish your registration.

In your controller enable the email component:

< ?php var $components = array('Email'); ?>

Then anywhere in your controller you can do something like the following to send an email: (make sure to replace your own access_key / access_secret details, better to make them constant)

$this->Email->smtpOptions  =  array(
  'port'=>'587',
  'timeout'=>'30',
  'host' => 'smtp.mailazy.com',
  'username'=>'access_key',
  'password'=>'access_secret'
);

$this->Email->delivery  = 'smtp';
$this->Email->from  = 'Your Name ';
$this->Email->to  = 'Recipient Name ';
$this->set('name', 'Recipient Name');
$this->Email->subject  = 'This is a subject';
$this->Email->template  = 'Login';
$this->Email->sendAs  = 'both';
$this->Email->send();
