Postal

Internet email library for Clojure

Postal is a library for constructing and sending RFC822-compliant Internet email messages. It wraps the JavaMail package for message and SMTP support. It supports sendmail natively.

Platforms

  • Any Unix platform that supports Java and sendmail (msmtp, et al.)
  • Untested on Windows

Dependencies

  • JavaMail 1.4.2 (in lib/ after build)

Examples

At a bare minimum, provide a map with :from, :to, :subject, and :body. This will locally inject the message into sendmail.

user> (in-ns 'postal.core)
#<Namespace postal.core>
postal.core> (send-message {:from "me@draines.com"
                                        :to ["mom@example.com" "dad@example.com"]
                                        :cc "bob@example.com"
                                        :subject "Hi!"
                                        :body "Test."})
{:code 0, :error :SUCCESS, :message "message sent"}
postal.core> 

To use SMTP, add metadata with a :host key.

postal.core> (send-message #^{:host "mail.isp.net"}
                           {:from "me@draines.com"
                            :to "foo@example.com"
                            :subject "Hi!"
                            :body "Test."})
{:code 0, :error :SUCCESS, :message "message sent"}
postal.core> 

Authenticate to SMTP server with :user and :pass.

postal.core> (send-message #^{:host "mail.isp.net"
                              :user "jsmith"
                              :pass "sekrat!!1"}
                           {:from "me@draines.com"
                            :to "foo@example.com"
                            :subject "Hi!"
                            :body "Test."})
{:code 0, :error :SUCCESS, :message "message sent"}
postal.core> 

Attachments and multipart messages can be added as sequences of maps:

postal.core> (send-message #^{:host "mail.isp.net"}
                           {:from "me@draines.com"
                            :to "foo@example.com"
                            :subject "Hi!"
                            :body [{:type "text/html"
                                    :content "<b>Test!</b>"}
                                ;;;; supports both dispositions:
                                   {:type :attachment
                                    :content (java.io.File. "/tmp/foo.txt")}
                                   {:type :inline
                                    :content (java.io.File. "/tmp/foo.txt")}]})
{:code 0, :error :SUCCESS, :message "message sent"}
postal.core>

You can stress-test a server by:

postal.core> (stress #^{:host "localhost"
                        :num     1000
                        :delay   250   ;; msecs
                        :threads 5     ;; concurrent connections}
                     {:from "foo@lolz.dom"
                      :to "bar@lolz.dom"})
sent 1000 msgs to localhost:25
nil
postal.core>
