# wp_mail works with add_action('save_post', …) but not an ajax action

I have two actions. One is after saving a post, so add_action('save_post', 'on_any_post');

I have a second action triggered via AJAX, so

add_action( 'wp_ajax_nopriv_saveTaskPriority', 'saveTaskPriority' );


In both on_any_post and saveTaskPriority, I have the following code:

$to = array('foo@bar.com');$subject = 'foo';
$body = 'bar'; wp_mail($to, $subject,$body);


The only difference is, in the ajax function, I have die('hi'); at the end.

I KNOW the ajax method is being called, because I am returning data and console.logging it. (Meaning I see 'hi' in the response of the POST in chrome developer tools)

I get the email from the save_post action, but not the ajax action. What gives?

EDIT: If I use straight up mail() in the ajax function, it works.

Try die(var_dump(function_exists('wp_mail'))); instead of die('hi'); What does that give you? –  s_ha_dum Feb 28 '13 at 19:36
