    class CakeEmail(mixed $config = null)

    CakeEmail is a new class introduce to send email. With the help of this class one can send email from any where in the application.The CakeEmail class replaces the earlier used EmailComponent and provides more flexibility in sending emails.

    The class is loaded using App::uses(): App::uses('CakeEmail', 'Network/Email');

    We can use CakeEmail in the similar way as we use EmailComponent.But instead of using attributes in the CakeEmail class we use methods.


    $Email = new CakeEmail();
    $Email->from(array('' => 'Example'))
        ->send('My example explaination);

    One can also choose sender with the sender() method i.e.

    $Email = new CakeEmail();
    $Email->sender('', 'I choose sender');


    First create the file email.php under directory app/Config/ with the class name EmailConfig. The example of this file is stored in app/Config/email.php.default.
    CakeEmail class will then create an instance of the EmailConfig class to access the configuration . You can use the constructor to do that:

    class EmailConfig {
        public function __construct() {
            // Do conditional assignments here.

    Configuration Keys list which are used is as following : The following configuration keys are used:

    1. 'from': Email or array of sender. See CakeEmail::from().

    2.'sender': Email or array of real sender. See CakeEmail::sender().
