In Magento 1.9.1, order confirmation emails are queued and scheduled to be sent. How can I disable this? I would like Magento to send emails in real time like it used to do.
Standard this involves a lot of customisation and changing of core files (of course via overwrite instead of really changing core files).
There is a solution via a extensions though. the SMTP Pro extension by Aschroder has the possibility to send emails directly without cron.
You can download it here https://github.com/aschroder/Magento-SMTP-Pro-Email-Extension
Via this url you see the setting thats available. https://github.com/aschroder/Magento-SMTP-Pro-Email-Extension/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=percron
