Property Details

$fileTransportCallback public property

A PHP callback that will be called by send() when $useFileTransport is true. The callback should return a file name which will be used to save the email message. If not set, the file name will be generated based on the current timestamp.

The signature of the callback is:

function ($mailer, $message)
public callable $fileTransportCallback = null

$fileTransportPath public property

The directory where the email messages are saved when $useFileTransport is true.

public string $fileTransportPath = '@runtime/mail'

$htmlLayout public property

HTML layout view name. This is the layout used to render HTML mail body. The property can take the following values:

  • a relative view name: a view file relative to $viewPath, e.g., 'layouts/html'.
  • a path alias: an absolute view file path specified as a path alias, e.g., '@app/mail/html'.
  • a boolean false: the layout is disabled.
public string|boolean $htmlLayout = 'layouts/html'

$messageClass public property

The default class name of the new message instances created by createMessage()

public string $messageClass = 'yii\mail\BaseMessage'

$messageConfig public property

The configuration that should be applied to any newly created email message instance by createMessage() or compose(). Any valid property defined by yii\mail\MessageInterface can be configured, such as from, to, subject, textBody, htmlBody, etc.

For example:

[
    'charset' => 'UTF-8',
    'from' => 'noreply@mydomain.com',
    'bcc' => 'developer@mydomain.com',
]
public array $messageConfig = []

$textLayout public property

Text layout view name. This is the layout used to render TEXT mail body. Please refer to $htmlLayout for possible values that this property can take.

public string|boolean $textLayout = 'layouts/text'

$useFileTransport public property

Whether to save email messages as files under $fileTransportPath instead of sending them to the actual recipients. This is usually used during development for debugging purpose.

See also $fileTransportPath.

public boolean $useFileTransport = false

$view public property

View instance or its array configuration that will be used to render message bodies.

public yii\web\View getView ( )
public void setView ( $view )

$viewPath public property

The directory that contains the view files for composing mail messages Defaults to '@app/mail'.

public string getViewPath ( )
public void setViewPath ( $path )

Method Details

afterSend() public method

This method is invoked right after mail was send.

You may override this method to do some postprocessing or logging based on mail send status. If you override this method, please make sure you call the parent implementation first.

public void afterSend ( $message, $isSuccessful )
$message yii\mail\MessageInterface
$isSuccessful boolean

beforeSend() public method

This method is invoked right before mail send.

You may override this method to do last-minute preparation for the message. If you override this method, please make sure you call the parent implementation first.

public boolean beforeSend ( $message )
$message yii\mail\MessageInterface
return boolean

Whether to continue sending an email.

compose() public method

Creates a new message instance and optionally composes its body content via view rendering.

public yii\mail\MessageInterface compose ( $view = null, array $params = [] )
$view string|array|null

The view to be used for rendering the message body. This can be:

  • a string, which represents the view name or path alias for rendering the HTML body of the email. In this case, the text body will be generated by applying strip_tags() to the HTML body.
  • an array with 'html' and/or 'text' elements. The 'html' element refers to the view name or path alias for rendering the HTML body, while 'text' element is for rendering the text body. For example, ['html' => 'contact-html', 'text' => 'contact-text'].
  • null, meaning the message instance will be returned without body content.

The view to be rendered can be specified in one of the following formats:

  • path alias (e.g. "@app/mail/contact");
  • a relative view name (e.g. "contact") located under $viewPath.
$params array

The parameters (name-value pairs) that will be extracted and made available in the view file.

return yii\mail\MessageInterface

Message instance.

createMessage() protected method

Creates a new message instance.

The newly created instance will be initialized with the configuration specified by $messageConfig. If the configuration does not specify a 'class', the $messageClass will be used as the class of the new message instance.

protected yii\mail\MessageInterface createMessage ( )
return yii\mail\MessageInterface

Message instance.

createView() protected method

Creates view instance from given configuration.

protected yii\web\View createView ( array $config )
$config array

View configuration.

return yii\web\View

View instance.

generateMessageFileName() public method

public string generateMessageFileName ( )
return string

The file name for saving the message when $useFileTransport is true.

getView() public method

public yii\web\View getView ( )
return yii\web\View

View instance.

getViewPath() public method

public string getViewPath ( )
return string

The directory that contains the view files for composing mail messages Defaults to '@app/mail'.

render() public method

Renders the specified view with optional parameters and layout.

The view will be rendered using the $view component.

public string render ( $view, $params = [], $layout = false )
$view string

The view name or the path alias of the view file.

$params array

The parameters (name-value pairs) that will be extracted and made available in the view file.

$layout string|boolean

Layout view name or path alias. If false, no layout will be applied.

return string

The rendering result.

saveMessage() protected method

Saves the message as a file under $fileTransportPath.

protected boolean saveMessage ( $message )
$message yii\mail\MessageInterface
return boolean

Whether the message is saved successfully

send() public method

Sends the given email message.

This method will log a message about the email being sent. If $useFileTransport is true, it will save the email as a file under $fileTransportPath. Otherwise, it will call sendMessage() to send the email to its recipient(s). Child classes should implement sendMessage() with the actual email sending logic.

public boolean send ( $message )
$message yii\mail\MessageInterface

Email message instance to be sent

return boolean

Whether the message has been sent successfully

sendMessage() protected abstract method

Sends the specified message.

protected abstract boolean sendMessage ( $message )
$message yii\mail\MessageInterface

The message to be sent

return boolean

Whether the message is sent successfully

sendMultiple() public method

Sends multiple messages at once.

The default implementation simply calls send() multiple times. Child classes may override this method to implement more efficient way of sending multiple messages.

return integer

Number of messages that are successfully sent.

setView() public method
