Update confirmation email on the event checkout_onepage_controller_success_action

I’m facing an issue and i’m wondering if you could help me with it ..

I need to update my confirmation email on the following event: checkout_onepage_controller_success_action, and send it only after my updates are done inside it..

Problem is I don’t find where is sent the confirmation email in the code ? and it’s probably not an observer on an event no ?

Maybe you could help me with it because i need to update this email with some important Information that I only got after I have a payment confirmation ..

Anyway I wish you a nice sunday and maybe you will be able to help me,

All the best for your different projects,


PS i’m using magento
