How do i send and receive emails from Joomla?
Have to be more specific than that.
- if you wish to send emails to customers registered in your website, you should utilize somekind of e-newsletter component - http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/content-sharing/newsletter
- If you wish to sent email programmatically, simplest way is by using
JUtility::sendMail($from, $fromname, $recipient, $subject, $body, $mode, $cc, $bcc, $attachment, $replyto, $replytoname);
if you want so that it is more complex get mailer and configure by yourself
$mailer =& JFactory::getMailer(); $mailer->IsHTML(false); $mailer->setSubject("Hello World"); $mailer->setBody("Hello from Joomla"); $mailer->addRecipient('firstname.lastname@example.org'); $mailer->AddCustomHeader('X-Header: example'); $mailer->Send();
If you would like your customers to email one another, you might like to use PMS (Private Messages System) http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/communication/pms. I'd recomment UddeIM, great texting system.
