Send an email
There is a dedicated node to send an email.
It uses an email server (named “SMTP”) and you have to get one (a free good one is google mail (gmail)) and enter its parameters into the node.
Caveat: it seems it is not allowed to use Hotmail as a server to send emails.
Drag and drop an email node to send the message:
And parametrize it to send the message:
- “To” : fill with the recipient
- “Server” et “Port” are the server parameters
- “Userid” is the user (and “Password” its password) allowed to use the mail server above.
for gmail, use “smtp.gmail.com” as server and “465” as port and a valid firstname.lastname@example.org as Userid. Check “Use secure conenction”.
To use a Gmail account to send the email, you have to check a box in the Google settings: https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps
