Re: Order confirmation Sending Emails without "Cron Job" ?

Does it matter? I asked them an they said they can't enable cron job for me.

Is there any solution for Magento to send emails without cronjob?

Hello There,

 

It would be helpful for us to understand the issue, if you could share hosting details and the magento version you are using.

Re: Order confirmation Sending Emails without "Cron Job" ?

Yep, Magento depends on having a periodic cron trigger to act as a clock tick for its internal cron jobs it needs to run. While you can provide this externally, it's a pretty good indicator that the hosting plan you have will never run Magento properly if they cannot provide you with a functional cron process.

Re: Order confirmation Sending Emails without "Cron Job" ?

If emails are being sent using the standard Magento functionality then they get sent at the time of order and aren't dependent on cron. However, as others have said, hosting a Magento site on a server that won't allow cron is a bad idea as it is needed for other maintenance tasks.

Order emails are queued and sent out via cron job starting somewhere in 1.9

 

If you want to revert back to the functionality mentioned, you have to do a module overwrite to return back to send immedately.

@chiefair how to overwrite module to send email immediately, sending email by cron job is really sick, sometime clients get emails ages after ordering.. please help

Re: Order confirmation Sending Emails without "Cron Job" ?

Ashley Schroder's SMTP Pro module has a setting that disables the queue and reverts 1.9 to send immediately like previous versions. I'd recommend installing that instead of writing a module.
