A non-blocking smtp client to work with tornado-based application

Project Description

Non-blocking smtp client to work with tornado web framework 4.0 and above

This library is a port of Python smtplib to tornado non-blocking IOstream implementation.

The below example was taken and modified from Python docs’ example:

#!/usr/bin/env python3

from tornado_smtpclient import client

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

# create SMTP client
s = client.SMTPAsync()
yield s.connect('your.email.host',587)
yield s.starttls()
yield s.login('username', 'password')

# me == my email address
# you == recipient's email address
me = "my@email.com"
you = "your@email.com"

# Create message container - the correct MIME type is multipart/alternative.
msg = MIMEMultipart('alternative')
msg['Subject'] = "Link"
msg['From'] = me
msg['To'] = you

# Create the body of the message (a plain-text and an HTML version).
text = "Hi!\nHow are you?\nHere is the link you wanted:\nhttp://www.python.org"
html = """\
<html>
<head></head>
<body>
<p>Hi!<br>
How are you?<br>
Here is the <a href="http://www.python.org">link</a> you wanted.
</p>
</body>
</html>
"""

# Record the MIME types of both parts - text/plain and text/html.
part1 = MIMEText(text, 'plain')
part2 = MIMEText(html, 'html')

# Attach parts into message container.
# According to RFC 2046, the last part of a multipart message, in this case
# the HTML message, is best and preferred.
msg.attach(part1)
msg.attach(part2)

# sendmail function takes 3 arguments: sender's address, recipient's address
# and message to send - here it is sent as one string.
yield s.sendmail(me, you, msg.as_string())
yield s.quit()
