$Person->sendEmail()

$Person->sendEmail($email_template,$vars);

Send an email to $Person using the $email_template template. $vars should contain any PeoplePods objects you want to refer to in the email - you can pass a document, a group, a text message, or an invite code.

By default, the message is sent to $Person. However, passing in a "to" address will override this.

// send a 'share this' email to someone 
$friend = "chester@xoxco.com";
$Person->sendEmail('share_this',array(
  'document'=>$document,
  'to'=>$friend
));

// send a 'new comment' email to $Person
$Person->sendEmail('new_comment',array('document'=>$document));

The email's content and subject are set inside the template file, located in the theme directory under the emails folder.
