I have Magento and I use Paypal Express Checkout. The issue is that Invoice emails are not automatically sent. It says at the invoice details page:

the invoice email is not sent

Can someone tell me whats the issue here?

The Order confirmation emails are sent successfully and I think Paypal data is also getting captured via IPN (or by PDT) as I am getting "Payment Information" filled with data coming from paypal.

Let me know how to get this solved.

Thanks a lot.

class Some_Module_Model_Observer
    public function salesOrderPaymentPay($observer)
         * @var $invoice Mage_Sales_Model_Order_Invoice
         * @var $paymentMethod Mage_Payment_Model_Method_Abstract
        $invoice       = $observer->getEvent()->getInvoice();
        $paymentMethod = $observer->getEvent()->getPayment()->getMethodInstance();
        if ($paymentMethod->getCode() == Mage_Paypal_Model_Config::METHOD_WPP_EXPRESS && !$invoice->getEmailSent()) {
