outbox 0.1.4

SMTP client for Humans.

Latest Version: 0.1.5

This is simplest SMTP client you'll ever see. It's 100% synchronous...

Usage

Give your app an outbox easily:

from outbox import Outbox, Email, Attachment

# io.StringIO for Python 3 folks
from StringIO import StringIO

attachments = [
    Attachment('kittens.jpg', fileobj=open('ducks.jpg', 'rb')),
    Attachment('my-transient-file.bin', fileobj=StringIO('some raw data')),
]

outbox = Outbox(username='username', password='password',
        server='server', port=1234, mode='SSL')

outbox.send(Email(subject='my subject', body='some nice sentiment',
        recipients=['nathan@getoffmalawn.com']), attachments=attachments)

# html email with attachments
outbox.send(Email(subject='my subject', html_body='<b>SOME REALLY NICE SENTIMENT</b>',
        recipients=['nathan@getoffmalawn.com']), attachments=attachments)

This method will log in to the server each time send() is called.

Alternatively, you can use Outbox as a context manager:

with Outbox(username='username', password='password',
        server='server', port=1234, mode='SSL') as outbox:

    outbox.send(Email(subject='my subject', body='some nice sentiment',
            recipients=['nathan@getoffmalawn.com']), attachments=attachments)

    # html email with attachments
    outbox.send(Email(subject='my subject', html_body='<b>SOME REALLY NICE SENTIMENT</b>',
            recipients=['nathan@getoffmalawn.com']), attachments=attachments)

Using Outbox as a context manager has the added benefit of performing a single login to send all emails.

Installation

Installing Outbox.py is simple:

$ pip install outbox

Change History

0.1.4
  • Handle passing a single recipient as a string, instead of forcing the recipient to be a list.
  • Handle utf8 email properly. Thanks, Zhang Mingyuan! I doubt I've covered every use case, so the charset to use can be passed in when constructing an Email.
  • Added a sender_address method to the Outbox class, for when the username used for authentication isn't good enough.
0.1.3 (3rd July 2012)
  • Made a few lines of code a bit easier to follow. No functional changes.
  • Updated the license to actually hold copyright in my name, instead of Kenneth Reitz. Does this mean he owned copyright on the library up until now? Can I even change the license? I'm unsure.
0.1.2 (2nd June 2012)
  • Made Outbox a context manager, so it can be used with the with statement. As noted in the example, this has the added benefit of performing a single login to send all emails, you should get better performance using a with statement.
  • Removed raw and filepath arguments to Attachment. They were both begging to point to a file-like object, so that's what you have now - an argument called fileobj
  • Fixed annoying encoding error when trying to send binary attachments.
  • The Email object does not have a type argument anymore. Instead, there is body and html_body, so you can send an email with both html and plain-text bodies.
0.1.1 (27th May 2012)
  • Initial release
