html2eml is a simple package for converting HTML text to EML format (MIME RFC 2822).

Getting started

Create simple message with to and from headers

>>> import html2eml

>>> msg = html2eml.from_html('<html><body><p>Hello world</p></body></html>', to='spam@example.com', from_='eggs@example.com', subject='Sausage')

>>> print(msg.as_string())
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html; charset="utf-8"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
To: spam@example.com
From: eggs@example.com
Subject: =?utf-8?q?Sausage?=

html2eml allows changing charset of html message

>>> msg = html2eml.from_html('<html><body><p>Hello world</p></body></html>', charset='ISO-8859-1', to='spam@example.com')

>>> print(msg.as_string())
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html; charset="iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
To: spam@example.com

<html><body><p>Hello world</p></body></html>

Outside of To and From fields we can also specify CC and BCC

>>> msg = html2eml.from_html('<html><body><p>Hello world</p></body></html>', to='foo@example.com', from_='bar@example.com', cc='spam@example.com', bcc='eggs@example.com')

>>> print(msg.as_string())
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html; charset="utf-8"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
To: foo@example.com
From: bar@example.com
CC: spam@example.com
BCC: eggs@example.com

In case of multiple recipients we can pass a list in any of those fields

>>> msg = html2eml.from_html('<html><body><p>Hello world</p></body></html>', to=['foo@example.com', 'spam@example.com', 'eggs@example.com'], from_='bar@example.com')

>>> print(msg.as_string())
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html; charset="utf-8"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
To: foo@example.com, spam@example.com, eggs@example.com
From: bar@example.com

Library also supports converting plain EML messages to MIME Multipart messages

>>> msg = html2eml.from_html('<html><body><p>Hello world</p></body></html>', to=['foo@example.com', 'spam@example.com', 'eggs@example.com'], from_='bar@example.com')

>>> multipart = html2eml.convert_eml_to_multipart(msg)

>>> print(multipart.as_string())
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/mixed; charset="utf-8"; boundary="===============2813024326530809151=="
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
To: foo@example.com, spam@example.com, eggs@example.com
From: bar@example.com

--===============2813024326530809151==
Content-Type: text/html; charset="utf-8"
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
