I'd like to send an email when un approval event occurs.
For example, an user write an article which has to be approved by another one. I want this second user to be warned by email that he has an article to approved. And after he approves the article, i'd like to send an email to the first user to tell him that the article has been approved.
How can I do that ?
I really need help !

Hello Tom et al.
I'd like to do someting equivalent (I want to approve user registration and send a notification to the user requesting access when he has been approved). I guess we should build an email notification event and put it in the workflow.
Did you progress on this issue since your last post ?
Many thanks for your help

Also you can check out new documentation about notification in eZ publish.

Although Brian's solution is very good as far as it goes, it still does not solve part of the original problem: notifying the user that submitted the object for approval. I am considering branching Lukasz Serwatka's Information extension for this purpose.

Isn't this what happens when the author checks the approval box for collaboration notification? In admin side under 'My Account Tab', 'My Notification Settings', 'Collaboration Notification'.
Of course the author could always sign up to receive notifications for the section(s)/ folders/ articles they are writing.

Brian, what happens when the author checks that box is that he gets a notification when submitting the article for approval. He will get a mail stating that the article is with the editor waiting to be approved. The editor will get a similar mail, stating that there is an article waiting to be approved by him.
However, when the article is approved (or, even more importantly, when the article is rejected and sent back to the author for modification), the author gets no notification at all.
