# MailManager

This set of classes allow to send emails easily with Python.

## The SMTP Server

The server class keeps an open connection to the SMTP server, trying to recover itself if the connection is interrupted (and throw an exception if it can't).

### How to use the server


import mailmanager

server = mailmanager.server() server.set_host("localhost") server.set_port(25) server.set_ssl(False) server.set_username("username@domain.tld") server.set_password("$ecretPa$$w0rd")

server.connect() server.sendmail("from@address", "to@address", "message") server.disconnect()
except Exception, e:
msg, err, exc = e.args print "Server unavailable (%s)" % msg

## The Message

The message class creates an email from known parameters. The result is a string that can be sent through the server class or directly to SMTP.

### How to create a simple multipart message

It's simple, too:

import mailmanager

msg = mailmanager.message() msg.set_mail_from("smtp.sender@address.org") msg.set_from_name("Shown Sender Name") msg.set_from_mail("origin@email.org") msg.set_sender_name("Real Sender Name") msg.set_sender_mail("sender@email.org") msg.set_to_name("Recipient Name") msg.set_to_mail("destination@email.org") msg.set_subject("This is the message subject")

msg.add_part("This is a text content", "plain") msg.add_part("<html><body><h1>This is HTML</h1></body></html>")

### How to add an attachment to a message

This library handles attachments. You just need to declare it.


### How to add an image to an HTML message

Add it to your HTML code:

<img src="cid:image1.png" alt="" />

Notice the "cid:" part. It's not chosen randomly.

Then, open your image file and load the content as binary:

fp = open("/path/to/your/image", "rb") content = fp.read() fp.close()

In your HTML message, add the image and assign the name:

m.add_image("image1.png", content)

That's all.

### How to get parameters to send an email:

The message must be converted to string. Also, there are two helpers to retrieve the sender and the recipient:

s = mailmanager.server() s.connect() s.sendmail(msg.sender(), msg.recipient(), msg.as_string()) s.disconnect()
