Swiftmaler in CLI task throws exception

Hi together,

in my cli.php i set the mail for my di like this:

 $di->set('mail', function () {
     return new Mail(); 

In my task, I'ld like to send an email like this:



                 $customerEmail => $customerEmail



                 'foo' => 'bar'


When executing the task, I receive this exception:

Catchable fatal error: Argument 1 passed to Swift_Mime_SimpleMessage::__construct() must be an instance of Swift_Mime_HeaderSet, none given

Any help?

Thank you so much

What is mail new Mail () ? Your service for sending mails should like like this:

$di->set('mailer', function () use ($config) {
    include APPLICATION_PATH.'/../lib/swift/swift_required.php';
    $transport = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance($config->smtp->address, $config->smtp->port)
    $mailer = Swift_Mailer::newInstance($transport);
    return $mailer;

And then somewhere in task:


Where $message is Swift_Message::newInstance.

Most of the time in creating message, rendering volt, and sending email is this last thing. Im creating message and rednering volt in request, and then i put this prepared message to queue and then in cli i just send it.

Thanks a lot! I was missing the require DIR . '/../vendor/swiftmailer/swiftmailer/lib/swift_required.php';
