    Check into the review_safe_after event, or possibly extend the product controller class app/code/core/Mage/Review/controllers/ProductController.php May 21, 2015 at 5:12

  • @TimHallman. You should write your comment as an answer. Include a link to a page explaining how to create an observer and it's the perfect answer.

You can add an observer to the review_save_after event in your config.xml file like this:


Note: you will need to customize the above code and create your observer class to meet your needs. For more information on Magento observers see this link.

Alternatively, you may be able to extend the product controller class in


Then add your mail function after the line that looks like:

$session->addSuccess($this->__('Your review has been accepted for moderation.'));

There is some useful information here pertaining to overriding Magento observers.
