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.
I will show you how to use your Gmail account to send an email.

——————————————————————————

var http=require(‘http’);
var nodemailer=require(‘nodemailer’);

var transporter = nodemailer.createTransport({
service: ‘gmail’,
auth: {
user: ‘littlestaralbum@gmail.com’,// you need replace your one
pass: ‘jqwaswcextlopkig’//you need replace your one
}
});

var mailOptions = {
from: ‘littlestaralbum@gmail.com’,
to: ‘chandanamine@gmail.com’,
subject: ‘Sending Email using Node.js’,
text: ‘That was easy!’
};

http.createServer(
function (req,res){

transporter.sendMail(mailOptions, function(error, info){
if (error) {
console.log(error);
} else {
console.log(‘Email sent: ‘ + info.response);
}
});
res.end();
}

).listen(8080);

 


 

And that’s it! Now your server is able to send emails.

 

Multiple Receivers

Send email to more than one address:

var mailOptions = {
from: ‘littlestaralbum@gmail.com’,
to: ‘chandanamine@gmail.com,otheremail@gmail.com’,
subject: ‘Sending Email using Node.js’,
text: ‘That was easy!’
};

You can change above line as needs.
