DelayedMailhopper Build Status

DelayedMailhopper provides a simple solution to queue, deliver and archive emails in Rails apps. It extends Mailhopper and uses DelayedJob to queue delivery jobs asynchronously.


  • Rails 3.1+
  • DelayedJob
  • Mailhopper


Add to your project's Gemfile:

gem 'delayed_mailhopper'

Install with bundler (note: also installs dependencies such as DelayedJob and Mailhopper):

bundle install

Configure Mailhopper

If you haven't already, you'll need to run generators for Mailhopper and then migrate your database.

rails g mailhopper
rake db:migrate

Configure DelayedJob

ActiveRecord Backend

Add the gem to your Gemfile:

gem 'delayed_job_active_record'

Run the generator to create the migration for the delayed_job table.

rails g delayed_job:active_record
rake db:migrate

see the README:

Mongoid backend

Add the gem to your Gemfile:

gem 'delayed_job_mongoid'

Create the indexes (and don't forget to do this on your production database):

script/rails runner 'Delayed::Backend::Mongoid::Job.create_indexes'

see the README:


If you've cleared your delayed job queue and need to regenerate jobs for all unsent emails, try the following from your Rails console (rails c):

DelayedMailhopper::Email.unsent.each { |email| email.enqueue }


Please see the README for Mailhopper:
