I simply want to send an email, the simplest html email all over the world, through my smtp host. It works perfectly with node mailer but... installed via NPM it's 68MB! Is there a way to get a "reduced-size" version of it, please?

it's 26MB, sorry, however, it's a lot of stuff!

If you don't like the size, then you can safely remove the following directory which is about 21M size but is actually not needed by Nodemailer


I can't remove it from the dependencies though as it is needed for some other things and I do not want to maintain several versions of the same code (in this case, the "mimelib" module).

Nodemailer doesn't include iconv module anymore by default, so freshly installed size shoud be about 3MB instead of the previous 26MB
