Send custom transactional email in Magento.

>> Here I'll show you how to use custom transactional mail in Magento. It's very simple, you can use it for your custom page.

    => First create your mail template. Go to Admin=>System=>Transactional Emails=> Click "Add New Template" button. There you'll find a page like :

        Select a template from "Template" dropdown. You can use the "Contact Form". Now fill the all require fields and click save template. Now note the "Template Id" of this template.

    => Use this method to send the mail.

        public function sendJrTransactionalEmail()
            // set the Transactional Email Template's ID that you've created...
            $templateId = 1;
            // Set sender information
            $senderName = Mage::getStoreConfig('trans_email/ident_support/name');
            $senderEmail = Mage::getStoreConfig('trans_email/ident_support/email');
            $sender = array('name' => $senderName,
                        'email' => $senderEmail);
            // Set recepient information
            $recepientEmail = '';
            $recepientName = 'Jayanta Roy';       
            // Get Store ID
            $storeId = Mage::app()->getStore()->getId();
            // Set variables that can be used in email template. To get this variable write like {{var customerEmail}} in transactional Email.
            $vars = array('customerEmail' => '',           
                      'customerName' => 'Mr. John Due');
            $translate  = Mage::getSingleton('core/translate');
            // Send Transactional Email
                ->addBcc($senderEmail)      // You can remove it if you don't need to send bcc
                ->sendTransactional($templateId, $sender, $recepientEmail, $recepientName, $vars, $storeId);

Hope it'll help you........ :)
