about

VL.IO.Net.Email is a VL set of nodes to do basic email tasks.

Included nodes are:

  • SendEmail
  • SendEmail (Spread)
  • ListEmails

The nodes can be used in gamma, beta and alpha.

Both SendEmail nodes use the standard System.Net API and support only SMTP.

ListEmails uses MailKit and MimeKit and currently supports only POP3.

ListEmails assumes all attachments are image attachments and tries to parse their content as such.

ListEmails supports embedded/inline image extraction.

Installation and Usage
