Please use http.request.env['mail.mail'] instead of self.pool.get('mail.mail'). Your statement is like,

total_emails = http.request.env['mail.mail'].browse()

total_emails = total_emails + http.request.env['mail.mail'].create(vals)


hi i tried your solution error remove but still mail no send i set val is vals = {'state': 'outgoing', 'subject': 'Testing', 'body_html': '

' % message, 'email_to': 'kartik@vrsweb.in', 'email_from': 'vrstest123@gmail.com', #'attachment_ids': [(6, 0, attachment_ids)], } total_emails = http.request.env['mail.mail'].browse() total_emails = total_emails + http.request.env['mail.mail'].create(vals) total_emails.send()

You will not able to use "self.pool" in controller, to access the models. Try following:

obj_model = request.env['model.name']

Hope this helps !!.
