I cant seem to get the naming of the mimemail-message.tpl.php correct in Drupal 7. I know the naming scheme says "mimemail-message--[module]--[key].tpl.php" but either I'm not understanding what the brackets represent or I'm doing something else wrong.

I've tried:


Just mimemail-message.tpl.php works, but I need different template layout depending on which webform is used.

Also, is mime mail not supposed to make use of webform-mail-250.tpl.php at all?

  • i guess the [module] mean the module implement the hook_mail if you have any other module implements hook_mail [module] will be the machine name of this module instead of webform

enter image description here

As you can see in line 264 of webform.submissions.inc Webform uses submission as the key.

Thus it needs to be named


There is no way to target a specific webform without some extra custom code work.


function mymodule_mail_alter(&$message) {
  if ($message['module'] == 'webform') {
    $nid = $message['params']['node']->nid;
    $message['key'] = $nid; // set key to nid

Now you can do
