3. Change




$mailer-> send();

5. Add following line at the end of the file.


$order = Mage::getModel('sales/order');

$incrementId = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getLastRealOrderId();




} catch (Exception $ex) {

echo "Email Not Sent...";


$customer = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomer();

$email = $customer->getEmail();

//End Email Sending
