  • I haven't made any changes in core code.I just fount that under app\code\core\Mage\Core\Model\Email\Template.php in that send($email, $name = null, array $variables = array()) function Jan 11, 2017 at 6:37
  • Try to run these send email commands on remote server first, probably you can find some errors: tecadmin.net/ways-to-send-email-from-linux-command-line/#

After searching lot's of thing i found solution for this problem. This issue can solve by disabling mailQueue.


Change Line

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


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

But there may be case that it can affect other mail module
