New order email confirmation not being sent

I have upgraded my website to 1.9.1 and now my customers are not receiving order confirmation email.

I tried sending through the admin panel but nothing happens, also no update email is being received.


There are 2 methods to send mails from our Magento 1 store.

  1. By Using cron
  2. By Avoiding cron

If you want to avoid cron :

Open your order.php file at






$mailer-> send();

In app/design/frontend/base/default/template/checkout/success.phtml: add following line Top success page for sending mail direct

$order = Mage::getModel('sales/order');
$incrementId = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getLastRealOrderId(); 
} catch (Exception $ex) { 
    echo "Email Not Sent..."; 
$customer = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomer();
$email = $customer->getEmail();
//End Email Sending
  1. Starting with Magento 1.9.1 the emails are not being sent directly during checkout but instead are being queued.
  2. The queue is being processed via your Magento cronjob - please ensure this has been set up and is running correctly.
  3. The extension AOE_Scheduler can help you in confirming that your Magento cronjob has been configured correctly and is running.

i removed the following mail queue code from Template.php , then i started receiving email when the order is placed by customer or when i click send email from the admin panel "Sales/Orders" tab.

Magento had set the order email to be sent by schedule job instead of instant email... probably for performance reason?(i dont know why, i am very new to magento)... however i am going to put this code back in the Template.php and find a way to set and run the schedule job to run every 5 minutes...

Template.php is located in => /app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Email/Template.php

   if ($this->hasQueue() && $this->getQueue() instanceof Mage_Core_Model_Email_Queue) { 

    /** @var $emailQueue Mage_Core_Model_Email_Queue */
        $emailQueue = $this->getQueue();
                'subject'           => $subject,
                'return_path_email' => $returnPathEmail,
                'is_plain'          => $this->isPlain(),
                'from_email'        => $this->getSenderEmail(),
                'from_name'         => $this->getSenderName(),
                'reply_to'          => $this->getMail()->getReplyTo(),
                'return_to'         => $this->getMail()->getReturnPath(),
            ->addRecipients($emails, $names, Mage_Core_Model_Email_Queue::EMAIL_TYPE_TO)
            ->addRecipients($this->_bccEmails, array(), Mage_Core_Model_Email_Queue::EMAIL_TYPE_BCC);

        return true;
