   */
  public $SMTPKeepAlive = false;

  /**

  public $SMTPCrypto = 'tls';

  /**
   * Enable word-wrap

  public $wordWrap = true;

  /**
   * Character count to wrap at
   *

   */
  public $wrapChars = 76;

  /**

  public $mailType = 'html';

public function yourMethod(){
   $message = "Please activate the account ".anchor('user/activate/'.$data['u_link'],'Activate Now','');
   $email = \Config\Services::email();
   $email->setFrom('[email protected]', 'your Title Here');
   $email->setTo($data['u_email']);
   $email->setSubject('Your Subject here | tutsmake.com');
   $email->setMessage($message);//your message here

   $email->setCC('[email protected]');//CC
   $email->setBCC('[email protected]');// and BCC
   $filename = '/img/yourPhoto.jpg'; //you can use the App patch 
   $email->attach($filename);
   
   $email->send();
   $email->printDebugger(['headers']);
