Breaking: #61783 - Removed deprecated mailing API

See forge#61783


The deprecated methods to send email are removed. This includes the MailUtility::mail() method, the mail delivery substitution API and the plainMailEncoded() methods.


Any call to MailUtility::mail() or GeneralUtility::plainMailEncoded() will result in a fatal error. The option $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['t3lib/utility/class.t3lib_utility_mail.php']['substituteMailDelivery'] does not have any effect.

Affected installations

Any installation using an extension still using the deprecated API will fail.


Use the \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Mail\Mailer API for sending email.
