A full featured email status notifier for python

Project description

A module for quickly sending email status and alerts from python programs

This script was created to notify me when a job was completed (and sometimes include an exit status and relevant results)

Notipy is compatible with both python2 and python3


Get Notipy

From PyPi

pip install notipymail

From Source

git clone
python sdist
# Move dist\*.zip to desired location. Extract zip
cd Notipy-X.X
python install

On First Run

In a python session

import notipymail.notipy as notipy
notipy.updateSendDetails('', 'yourPassword', '', '587')

This will create file senddetails.dat containing the following contents:

Optionally, you can create this file manually.

Sending Emails with Notipy:

import notipymail.notipy as notipy
notipy.sendMail("", "This is a message")


Use notipy.sendMailAsync(..) to send mail in the background asynchronously.

Send status are logged in notipy.log. The log file can be changed in the #Constants section of

To query the log through python, use notipy.queryLog(5) where 5 specifies the number of log entries (most recent to least) to retrieve. This operation may be slow for large logs.

In sendMail and sendMailAsync, there is an optional third parameter where you can specify a subject. i.e. notipy.sendMail("", "This is the message", "Custom Subject"). The default subject is “Notipy Automail”
