Yes this is the default behaviour as long as you have your admin email setup in /mysite/_config.php.


That means the custom will get an email, and so will the address set in the above line.

Could be a number of things. Have you tried a different email address?

The code that does the emailing can be found in /ecommerce/code/Order.php in

protected function sendEmail($emailClass, $copyToAdmin = true)

I have to admit, I did find in ecommerce module I customized, I was having trouble not recieving emails. It was because for some reason the Email class was resetting the "to" field to blank.

I had to fix that in the above function by using;

if(isset($subject)) $e->setSubject($subject);

To manually set these before $e->send(); I thought this was because of the way I had customized the ecommerce system, but it may be a bug. What version of SS are you using?
