datatype_icon

sender's email address

Email address from which you want to send an email.

datatype_icon

recipients

Only printable ASCII characters are allowed in this input.

datatype_icon

message

Message in plain text that you want to include in the body of the email.

datatype_icon

attachments

An array where each element is the path to a file you want to include with the email.

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

outgoing SMTP mail server

Hostname or IP address of the SMTP server to use to send emails.

datatype_icon

port

The port number of the SMTP server to use to send emails. To use a secure connection, you may need to enter a port number that differs from the default.

Default: 25

datatype_icon

use secure connection

A Boolean value that determines whether to require a Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) secured connection when this node communicates with the SMTP server.

True A TLS/SSL secured connection is required in order to send the email.
False A TLS/SSL secured connection is not required in order to send the email.

Default: False

datatype_icon

invalid recipients

An array of strings that lists the email addresses rejected by the mail server.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
