mail1 is an API to send emails in a single call

Project description

Mail1 is an API to send email with a single function call. For instance, we could send an email running:

import mail1

mail1.send(subject='Test',
           text='This is a test!',
           recipients='casa@sweetohm.net',
           sender='casa@sweetohm.net',
           smtp_host='smtp.orange.fr')

That’s it!

send() method

The signature of the method to send an email is the following:

send(subject, text, text_html=None, sender=None,
     recipients=[None], cc=[], bcc=[], attachments={},
     encoding=ENCODING, smtp_host=SMTP_HOST, smtp_port=SMTP_PORT,
     username=None, password=None)

The parameters are the following:

  • subject: this is the subject of the email, as a string.
  • text: this is the text of the email as a string.
  • text_html: text as HTML.
  • sender: email address of the sender of the email.
  • recipients: the list of recipients, or the recipient as a string if there is a single one (this is NOT a coma separated list).
  • cc: the list of carbon copies.
  • bcc: the list of blind carbon copies.
  • attachments: a dictionnary that gives the file name for a given attachment name.
  • encoding: the encoding of the message.
  • smtp_host: the hostname of the email server.
  • smtp_port: the port of the email server (defaults to 25).
  • username: the username for SMTP basic authentication
  • password: the password for SMTP basic authentication

Command line

You can also invoke this script on command line to send emails. To get help about command line parameters, type mail1 -h, which will display following help page:

mail1 [-h] -f from -r recipient -s subject -a file
           -m smtphost -e encoding message
Send an email with following:
