Provide configurable Mail Transport Factory and simple messaging for ZF2


Features / Goals

  • Configure transport service for using Zend\Mail [COMPLETE]


With ZF2.3 the Transport Factory changed. This made changes to the configuration in the (and goaliomailservice.local.php) neccessary. I tried to check this in my own factory, but please be aware of this.


Main Setup

With composer

  1. Add this project and the requirements in your composer.json:

    "require": {
        "goalio/goalio-mailservice": "1.*"
  2. Now tell composer to download GoalioMailService by running the command:

    $ php composer.phar update

Post installation

  1. Enabling it in your application.config.phpfile.

    return array(
        'modules' => array(
            // ...
        // ...
  2. Copy the configuration files for local and global from ./vendor/goalio/goalio-mailservice/config/goaliomailservice.{local,global}.php.dist to ./config/autoload/goaliomailservice.{local,global}.php and change the values as desired.

  3. If you are using the FileTransport (for development) create the directory ./data/mail.


// The template used by the PhpRenderer to create the content of the mail
$viewTemplate = 'module/email/testmail';

// The ViewModel variables to pass into the renderer
$value = array('foo' => 'bar');

$mailService = $this->getServiceManager()->get('goaliomailservice_message');
$message = $mailService->createTextMessage($from, $to, $subject, $viewTemplate, $values);

SMTP Setup

GoalioMailService uses sendmail by default, but you can set it up to use SMTP by putting your information in the config file like this:

$settings = array(
    'type' => 'Zend\Mail\Transport\Smtp',

    'options_class' => 'Zend\Mail\Transport\SmtpOptions',

    'options' => array(
        'host' => '',
        'connection_class' => 'login',
        'connection_config' => array(
            'ssl' => 'tls',
            'username' => '',
            'password' => 'YOUR-PASSWORD-HERE'
        'port' => 587
