I am getting the following error message on my Joomla 3 site:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method UsersController::setSubject()

I used JMail::sendMail before I used JUtility::sendMail in version 1.5.

Any help is appreciated.

setSubject() is a function that belongs to the JMail class, not UsersController.

So assuming you want to set the subject for your email, you can use the following:

$mailer->setSubject('Subject Here');

For more information on Joomla's mail feature, have a read of the following:
