New in Symfony 4.4: PHPUnit Assertions for Email Messages

in #32930 and #33203.

The new Mailer and Mime components were introduced in Symfony 4.3 to replace the previous solution based on SwiftMailer. In Symfony 4.4 we've improved them with new PHPUnit assertions to test emails.

The new assertions follow the same philosophy of the test assertions introduced in Symfony 4.3, with long but expressive method names:

// tests/Controller/DefaultControllerTest.php
namespace App\Tests\Controller;

use Symfony\Bundle\FrameworkBundle\Test\WebTestCase;

class DefaultControllerTest extends WebTestCase
{
    public function testSomething()
    {
        $client = static::createClient();
        $client->request('GET', '/newsletter-signup');
        // ...

        $this->assertEmailCount(2);
        $this->assertEmailIsQueued($this->getMailerEvent(0));

        $email = $this->getMailerMessage(0);
        $this->assertEmailHeaderSame($email, 'To', '[email protected]');
        $this->assertEmailTextBodyContains($email, 'Welcome to Symfony!');
        $this->assertEmailAttachementCount($email, 1);
    }
}

This is the full list of mailer assertions:

  • assertEmailCount()
  • assertQueuedEmailCount()
  • assertEmailIsQueued()
  • assertEmailIsNotQueued()
  • assertEmailAttachementCount()
  • assertEmailTextBodyContains()
  • assertEmailTextBodyNotContains()
  • assertEmailHtmlBodyContains()
  • assertEmailHtmlBodyNotContains()
  • assertEmailHasHeader()
  • assertEmailNotHasHeader()
  • assertEmailHeaderSame()
  • assertEmailHeaderNotSame()
  • assertEmailAddressContains()
