Since upgrading to 4.6.4 I get this error whenever trying to schedule a mailing:

A fatal error was triggered: is not of the type Int

And this error when trying to send a test mailing:

Error in call to Mailing_send_test : Error in call to MailingJob_create : A fatal error was triggered: is not of the type Int

This is on WordPress 4.2.4

    This is a good question! To solve your problem, we'll need to see the expanded debugging information. In CiviCRM, please go to Administer menu > System Settings > Debugging and Error Handling, select "Yes" to both "Enable Debugging" and "Display Backtrace", and press "Save". Repeat the problem that caused your error, and you'll see much a much more detailed error. Please update this question with the expanded error and backtrace - and don't forget to disable debugging/backtrace when you're done! Aug 5 '15 at 14:29
  • I turned on both debugging and backtrace, then repeated the two processes. I received the same error messages, with no additional information beyond what I provided above.... Aug 5 '15 at 19:02
  • Hmm - I'm surprised you didn't see a backtrace - maybe it's hidden by your WP theme? You may want to check the ConfigAndLog directory for your CiviCRM log, which should hopefully include the backtrace, and post here. Aug 5 '15 at 19:14

There was a bug in CiviCRM 4.6.4 that triggered the same error 'A fatal error was triggered: is not of the type Int' when trying to rebuild the smart group cache so this could be related, especially if U used smart groups for your maling. I would suggest upgrading to 4.6.6 on a copy installation to see if that resolves the issue. Since this is not a real answer to your question I wanted to post this as a comment but I don't have sufficient reputation points to do that. I myself upgraded to 4.6.6 after experiencing too many problems with the 4.6.4 upgrade.

  • I think 'upgrade to 4.6.4 and confirm if the problem persists', is a valid answer but others may disagree

I just report a bug that could be related Error on action "Email - schedule/send via CiviMail" with multiple event names filter
