Elgg 2.0


  • Leverages Zend_Mail (email library used in core) to send out HTML emails
  • Allows filtering/formatting instant notifications
  • Allows to configure email transports (Sendmail, SMTP, File Transport)
  • Allows to send file attachments
  • Inlines CSS styles for improved email client experience
  • Microdata support


  • You can disable outgoing email by switching to File Transport in plugin settings, this will instead write email as txt files to the filestore under /notifications_log/zend/

  • Sample SMTP config for GMail To use GMail as your SMTP relay, you will likely need to Allow less secure apps: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255?hl=en

    Host: smtp.gmail.com Port: 587 Secure Connection: TLS Auth: SMTP with AUTH LOGIN Username: xxxx@gmail.com Password: xxxx


This plugin will conflict with any other plugin that subscribes to "send","notification:email" hook
