Commerce Email help

I'm hoping to get an answer here. I haven't yet had much luck getting support from these forums, but, after some hard lookin', I've been able to work through most of my issues in the past.

I'm using Commerce_email to send notifications after an order purchase, however the notifications that go out aren't as detailed as I'd like.

Can anyone specify a better outgoing notification system?

Or is there a way I can specify the commerce_email token: [commerce-order:commerce-email-order-items]

I can't seem to get a properly formatted outgoing email that contains the fields I need to send out in the email (namely the date and time of the course that is being purchased).

Any help would be MOST appreciated. Thanks guys!

Probably not the answer you want, but what I am doing is wrting a custom module where I use php to loop through the order and get information that I need and then send the mail. If you look at the code in commerce_email you can get a sense of how the order line item info is assembled. Also helpful is to look at the code in the commerce_shipping module for looping through this same order information.

It would be helpful to know if you can add separate email (jobs) to commerce_email and how this could be accomplished in a distinct module so that it does not get erased on upgrade of commerce_email.

Much trickier and the step I am still working on is getting it to work with rules. I think commerce_shipping will provide me with a good template for how to build the rules/action event that can kick in (but on checkout complete)
