  3. Hi !

    I do the same as Jordi Llobet but I don’t recive the email too.

    I think I’ve forgotten something, can you help us?


  4. Now I tried a different approach:

    1st I added the view.tpl in override
    2nd I created an AdminOrdersController.php empty and I posted the code provded
    3rd I deleted the cache/class_index.php file

    I tested but the email is not received.

    What I am missing?
