This is a direct port of the email helper from Kohana 2.3.3 source code.
It has been updated to work with SwiftMailer 4 and includes the libs dir from the 4.0.4 distribution.
Usage should be exactly as with old helper.
Creates SwiftMailer object. $config is an array of configuration values and defaults to using the config file 'email'.
Note: PopBeforeSmtp is not supported in this release as I didn't know what was required to set it up. It IS supported in Swiftmailer through the Swift_Plugins_PopBeforeSmtpPlugin plugin class. This can be used manually if required. If anyone can modify and test the connect() methd with this functionality I'll add it but I can't find documentation about how it used to work (i.e. is expected to work) so I have left it out for now.
$to can be any of the following:
- a single string email address e.g. "email@example.com"
- an array specifying an email address and a name e.g. array('firstname.lastname@example.org', 'John Doe')
- an array of recipients in either above format, keyed by type e.g. array('to' => 'email@example.com', 'cc' => array('firstname.lastname@example.org', 'Jane Doe'), 'bcc' => 'email@example.com')
$from can be either a string email or array of email and name as above
More complex email (multipart, attachments, batch mailing etc.) must be done using the native Swift_Mailer classes. The Swift Mailer autoloader is included by connect() so you can use and class in the Swift library without worrying about including files.
The Swift_Mailer object setup by connect is returned by it so if you need to access it manually use:
$mailer = Email::connect(); // Create complex Swift_Message object stored in $message $mailer->send($message);
