SMTP Email Send

This handler builds and sends a plaintext or HTML encoded email directly to the specified email server specified by the associated task info values.


By downloading this file, you acknowledge that you agree to our Terms of Service

Detailed Description

This handler builds and sends a simple Smtp email directly to an email server based on the specified info items and parameters passed to the task instance. When an html body is set, the handler will replace images that have a fully qualified source prefixed with the string 'cid:' with embedded images. This includes the image files directly into the email rather than requiring the email client to load them from the Internet.

NOTE - This handler was updated 2014/01/17 to allow multiple email addresses (comma separated) in the To field. The version did not change because none of the input parameters changed and will be completely compatible with exiting nodes that use this handler.
