Gomail

Build Status Code Coverage Documentation

Introduction

Gomail is a simple and efficient package to send emails. It is well tested and documented.

Gomail can only send emails using an SMTP server. But the API is flexible and it is easy to implement other methods for sending emails using a local Postfix, an API, etc.

It is versioned using gopkg.in so I promise there will never be backward incompatible changes within each version.

It requires Go 1.2 or newer. With Go 1.5, no external dependencies are used.

Features

Gomail supports:

  • Attachments
  • Embedded images
  • HTML and text templates
  • Automatic encoding of special characters
  • SSL and TLS
  • Sending multiple emails with the same SMTP connection

FAQ

x509: certificate signed by unknown authority

If you get this error it means the certificate used by the SMTP server is not considered valid by the client running Gomail. As a quick workaround you can bypass the verification of the server's certificate chain and host name by using SetTLSConfig:

package main

import (
	"crypto/tls"

	"gopkg.in/gomail.v2"
)

func main() {
	d := gomail.NewDialer("smtp.example.com", 587, "user", "123456")
	d.TLSConfig = &tls.Config{InsecureSkipVerify: true}

    // Send emails using d.
}

Note, however, that this is insecure and should not be used in production.
