Features

The built in Python modules for sending email are powerful, but require a lot of boilerplate to write an HTML formatted email.

from email.mime.multipart import MIMEMultipart
from email.mime.text import MIMEText
import smtplib

message = MIMEMultipart('alternative')
message['Subject'] = 'Test'
message['From'] = 'user@gmail.com'
message['To'] = 'someone@else.com'

message.attach(MIMEText('# A Heading\nSomething else in the body', 'plain')
message.attach(MIMEText('<h1 style="color: blue">A Heading</a><p>Something else in the body</p>', 'html')

server = smtplib.SMTP('smtp.gmail.com', 587)
server.starttls()
server.login('user@gmail.com', 'password')
server.sendmail('user@gmail.com', 'someone@else.com', message.as_string())
server.quit()

With email_to sending a simple email becomes much more succint.

import email_to

server = email_to.EmailServer('smtp.gmail.com', 587, 'user@gmail.com', 'password')
server.quick_email('someone@else.com', 'Test',
                   ['# A Heading', 'Something else in the body'],
                   style='h1 {color: blue}')

email_to also supports building a message up, line by line. This is especially useful for monitoring scripts where there may be several different conditions of interest.

import email_to

server = email_to.EmailServer('smtp.gmail.com', 587, 'user@gmail.com', 'password')

message = server.message()
message.add('# Oh boy, something went wrong!')
message.add('- The server had a hiccup')
message.add('- The power went out')
message.add('- Blame it on a rogue backhoe')
message.style = 'h1 { color: red}'

message.send('someone@else.com', 'Things did not occur as expected')

Additionally if the server details are not known at the beginning of the message, that can be handled easily too.

import email_to

message = email_to.Message('# Every thing is ok')
message.add('Everything has been running fine for days.')
message.add('Probably time to build something new and break everything')
message.style = 'h1 { color: green }'

server = email_to.EmailServer('smtp.gmail.com', 587, 'user@gmail.com', 'password')
server.send_message(message, 'someone@else.com', 'Things are awesome')
