Emails & reminders

cronjob to send reminder emails for events / appointments

Scheduled E-Mail reminders

OpenCATS can send out E-Mail reminders for calendar events before they happen. To enable this feature, configure cron or another scheduling daemon to invoke QueueCLI.php every minute. An example crontab line would look like:

* * * * * /usr/local/bin/php /var/www/html/opencats/QueueCLI.php


* * * * * curl > /dev/null

Email configuration problems

If you are seeing 'SSL Socket errors' then it's really a problem with the underlying PHPMailer application that handles SMTP Emails..

Warning: stream_socket_enable_crypto(): SSL operation failed with code 1. OpenSSL Error messages: error:14090086:SSL routines:ssl3_get_server_certificate:certificate verify failed in C:\wamp64\www\CATS\lib\phpmailer\class.smtp.php on line 369

Please check

You can skip verification of the ssl certificate by using the below:

$mail->SMTPOptions = array(
    'ssl' => array(
        'verify_peer' => false,
        'verify_peer_name' => false,
        'allow_self_signed' => true
