Fuel Email Package.

A full fledged email class for Fuel. Send mails using php's mail function, sendmail or SMTP.


  • Send plain/text or html with (optional) alternative plain/text bodies using mail, sendmail or SMTP.
  • Add attachments, normal or inline and string or file.
  • Automatic inline file attachments for html bodies.
  • Configurable attachment paths.


$mail = Email::forge();
$mail->from('me@domain.com', 'Your Name Here');

// Set to

// Set with name
$mail->to('mail@domain.com', 'His/Her Name');

// Set as array
	// Without name
	// With name
	'mail@domain.com' => 'His/Her Name',

// Work the same for ->cc and ->bcc and ->reply_to

// Set a body message
$email->body('My email body');

// Set a html body message
$email->html_body(\View::forge('email/template', $email_data));


	By default this will also generate an alt body from the html,
	and attach any inline files (not paths like http://...)


// Set an alt body
$email->alt_body('This is my alt body, for non-html viewers.');

// Set a subject
$email->subject('This is the subject');

// Change the priority

// And send it
$result = $email->send();


+ \EmailValidationFailedException, thrown when one or more email addresses doesn't pass validation
+ \EmailSendingFailedException, thrown when the driver failed to send the exception


// Use the default config and change the driver
$email = \Email::forge('default', array('driver' => 'smtp'));
$email->subject('My Subject');
$email->html_body(\View::forge('email/template', $email_data));
$email->from('me@example.com', 'It's Me!');
$email->to('other@example.com', 'It's the Other!');

catch(\EmailValidationFailedException $e)
	// The validation failed
catch(\EmailSendingFailedException $e)
	// The driver could not send the email


These can me one of the following:

+ \Email::P_LOWEST - 1 (lowest)
+ \Email::P_LOW - 2 (low)
+ \Email::P_NORMAL - 3 (normal) - this is the default
+ \Email::P_HIGH - 4 (high)
+ \Email::P_HIGHEST - 5 (highest)


There are multiple ways to add attachments:

$email = Email::forge();

// Add an attachment

// Add an inline attachment
// Add a cid here to point to the html
$email->attach(DOCROOT.'dir/my_img.png', true, 'cid:my_conten_id');

You can also add string attachments

$contents = file_get_contents($my_file);
$email->string_attach($contents, $filename);

By default html images are auto included, but it only includes local files. Look at the following html to see how it works.

// This is included
<img src="path/to/my/file.png" />

// This is not included
<img src="http://remote_host/file.jpeg" />


The drivers allow the use of this library with mostly anything that can send mails.


Mailgun is an online service by Rackspace (http://www.mailgun.com/) that allows you to send emails by demand. You will need to install the mailgun library (https://github.com/mailgun/mailgun-php) with composer in your FuelPHP.

Once you have installed the package you will have to set up the config for your App:

return array(
	 * Override default Email.php settings
	'defaults' => array(
		'driver' => 'mailgun',
		'mailgun' => array(
			'key' => 'YOUR KEY',
			'domain' => 'YOUR DOMAIN'

That's it. Questions?
