Email Resource

Module for Deployd that allows you to send an email to your users.

This is built on Andris Reinmans Nodemailer module.

Installation

$ npm install --save dpd-email

See Installing Modules for details.

Configuration

Before using the email resource, you must go to its Dashboard page and configure it.

Required settings:

host
The hostname of your SMTP provider. Leave this blank to use the DPD_EMAIL_HOST environment variable.

port
The port number of your SMTP provider. Leave this blank to use the DPD_EMAIL_PORT environment variable. Defaults to 25; 587 is also common.

ssl
If checked, use SSL to communicate with your SMTP provider.

username
The SMTP username for your app. Leave this blank to use the DPD_EMAIL_USERNAME environment variable.

password
The SMTP password for your app. Leave this blank to use the DPD_EMAIL_SMTP_PASSWORD environment variable.

Optional settings:

defaultFromAddress
A "from" email address to provide by default. Leave this blank to use the DPD_EMAIL_DEFAULT_FROM environment variable. If this is not provided, you will need to provide this address in every request.

internalOnly
If checked, only allow internal requests (such as those from events) to send emails. Recommended for security.

productionOnly
If checked, attempting to send an email in the development environment will simply print it to the Deployd console.

Usage

To send an email, call dpd.email.post(options, callback) (replacing email with your resource name). The options argument is an object:

{

    // The email address of the sender. Required if defaultFromAddress is not configured.
    // Can be plain (sender@server.com) or formatted (Sender Name <sender@server.com>)
    from : "",

    // Comma separated list of recipients e-mail addresses that will appear on the To: field
    to : "",

    // Comma separated list of recipients e-mail addresses that will appear on the Cc: field
    cc : "",

    // Comma separated list of recipients e-mail addresses that will appear on the Bcc: field
    bcc : "",

    // The subject of the e-mail.
    subject : "",

    // The plaintext version of the message (can also be generated via templating)
    text : "",

    // The HTML version of the message;
    html : "",
}

Example Usage

// On POST /users

dpd.email.post({
  to      : this.email,
  subject : 'MyApp registration',
  text    : [
    this.username,
    '',
    'Thank you for registering for MyApp!'
  ].join('\n')
}, function ( err, results ) {
    // ...
});

Template

This package no longer provides template feature. You can use

for render html or text before calling dpd.email.post()
