Here is how I'm sending emails from my multi-site magento, this function is called by a cron job & working fine to send emails.

Everything is working fine but all of the emails templates (there are different templates for different wesbsites/stores) have store url of admin. I don't know why {{store url=""}}" & "{{config path="web/secure/base_url"}} are returning admin store url instead of the Store Id I'm setting to template

public function sendEmail($templateId, $vars,$storeId ,$name, $email)
    try {

        $from_email     = Mage::getStoreConfig('trans_email/ident_general/email',$storeId); //fetch sender email Admin
        $from_name      = Mage::getStoreConfig('trans_email/ident_general/name',$storeId); //fetch sender name Admin
        $emailTemplate  = Mage::getModel('core/email_template');


        foreach ($vars as $key => $value) {
            $emailtemplateVariables[$key]  = $value;

        $result = $emailTemplate->send($email, $name, $emailtemplateVariables);

        Mage::log("Template Id : ".$templateId." send result : ".$result,null,"T-Emails.log");

    } catch(Exception $ex) {
        Mage::log($ex->getMessage(), null,"T-Emails.log");

    return $result;


  • set the template design config $emailTemplate->setDesignConfig(array('area' => 'frontend', 'store' => $storeId));
