    Sending Email Link to this post

    Hi all, I am totally new to Silverstripe.
    After two days I managed to successfully install the member profile module. This allows email address verification once a new user has enrolled.

    I was wondering what modules or software i would need to allow the website to send emails?

    Any pointers in the right direction would be great!

    Thanks

    Could you be more specific here... there is an Email class to send email...
    Do you mean a newsletter? there is a "newsletter module" (not great), i know someone who created another one and I use the chimpy module to send all of these to mailchimp by default - but intergrate with whatever a client requires.

    Hi Swaiba, I have installed the member profile module which allows users to become members of my site.
    As part of the verification process the member profile module has the option to send an email to the members email account stating that they must click on the link to verify they are who they say they are.
    The module also has the option to send an email to the admin account telling them that a new member has been verified.
    I am new to Silverstripe and coding for that matter, but I am thinking that in order to send the email I must install some other module, software etc?

    Thanks

    So in order to send email I dont need any other software or modules?
    That sounds great but to easy.
    I thought I would have to install some kind of email server software or direct the emails to a POP server etc?

    well with php you get the mail() function that sends email and as long as you have a half-way decent host this will work by default. This is what ss uses.

    What do you mean by host? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I am new to this.
