Email (Magic xpi 4.13)

Using standard communication protocols, the Email component sends and receives email messages, including attachments that can be saved on the local computer.

To use the Email component, you must have SMTP and POP3 or IMAP servers installed in your network.

To configure the Email component, you should know the following information:

  • The SMTP/POP3/IMAP server address.

  • The respective user name and password.

You can use the Email component to send or receive email messages. However, you cannot use the same instance of the Email component to perform both of these operations in one flow. Therefore, to perform both the Send and Receive Mail operations, you must use two instances of the Email component.

There is no limit to the number of instances of the Email component that you can use in the integration flow.

The Email component can:

  • Send and receive multiple messages at the same time.

  • Selectively filter email messages received based on different criteria.

  • View the received email messages on the server.

  • Choose which of the received messages to download to the local computer.

  • Determine which email messages should remain on the server after deletion from the local computer.

When you configure the Email component you provide it with information such as the type of operation carried out, the mail recipients and senders, and any attachments you are sending with the mail.

  • To use the Email component, you must have SMTP and POP3 or IMAP servers installed in your network. The default is SMTP.

  • The Email component can be used as a Trigger component for receiving email. The component triggers a flow only when mail is received after polling the POP3 server.

  • The BLOB body that is sent in the Email component is always sent in UTF-8. You should make sure that the BLOB contains valid UTF-8 data or a corrupted body will appear in the email that is sent. Also make sure that the value in the MailCharset setting is valid or an exception will be thrown.

  • The value in the ExternalCodePage setting does not affect the Email component.

There is a sample project available for this component. You can find the sample project at: <Magic xpi installation>\Extra\SampleProjects
