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

In order to use these nodes first download the zip file and unzip it in a place of your liking, then follow the instructions below depending on whether you are intending to use the nodes in alpha/beta or gamma.

alpha/beta Instructions

  1. Navigate to VL.IO.Net.Email\vvvv\girlpower
  2. Open ListEmails (help).v4p

hi, thanks for contrib

when i attach and send some file, that file becomes locked.
is it proper behaviour? can we avoid that?
i'll need to send ~700 files, so a bit afraid of getting into issues with that.
