Chapter 6. Post Payment Email Feature

This feature can be enabled in the component's parameters/options. When enabled, extra fields will appear in the button's form to configure the various settings for the email such as who it is from, the subject, the body, and if there are any attachments.

Process via a cron job

This is best used if you are attaching large files to the emails sent. It will only process post payment emails when activated manually. This can be done via a web browser or via cron job. An example entry for a cron job may look like this (requires that lynx be available):

0 */15 * * * lynx --dump "http://mysite.com/index.php?option=com_easypaypalbuttons&task=sendppemails&format=raw"

That cron job would process post payment emails every 15 minutes.
