Example send an email nodejs

The Nodemailer Module

The Nodemailer module makes it easy to send emails from your computer.

The Nodemailer module can be downloaded and installed using npm:

 

C:\Nodejs>npm install nodemailer

 

After you have downloaded the Nodemailer module, you can include the module in any application:

 

var nodemailer = require('nodemailer');

 

Send an Email

Now you are ready to send emails from your server.

Use the username and password from your selected email provider to send an email. This tutorial will show you how to use your Gmail account to send an email:

 

var nodemailer = require('nodemailer');

var transporter = nodemailer.createTransport({

  service: 'gmail',

  auth: {

    user: '[email protected]',

    pass: '1234567890'

  }

});

var mailOptions = {

  from: '[email protected]',

  to: '[email protected]',

  subject: 'Sending Email using Node.js',

  text: 'That was easy!'

};

 

transporter.sendMail(mailOptions, function(error, info){

  if (error) {

    console.log(error);

  } else {

    console.log('Email sent: ' + info.response);

  }

});

 

Run and check mail:

 

C:\ Nodejs>node sendEmail.js

Email sent: 250 2.0.0 OK 1524137484 r82sm8661181pfk.187 - gsmtp

 

Multiple Receivers

To send an email to more than one receiver, add them to the "to" property of the mailOptions object, separated by a comma:

 

var mailOptions = {

  from: '[email protected]',

  to: '[email protected], [email protected]',

  subject: 'Sending Email using Node.js',

  text: 'That was easy!'

}

 

Send HTML

To send HTML formatted text in your email, use the "html" property instead of the "text" property:

 

var mailOptions = {

  from: '[email protected]',

  to: '[email protected]',

  subject: 'Sending Email using Node.js',

  html: '<h1>Welcome</h1><p>That was easy!</p>'

}
