[SOLVED] Automatically send an email

Hello everyone :grinning:

I am working in a project where I want a user to get an email with a message in it which is to be sent through me or my app. How can I do that?

Thanks in advance

You can use the MailApp of the Google Apps Script.

At this point, I’d create a web hook in integromat and keep things nocode. I’ll work up an example sometime soon!

But yes, my most recently published app uses this method to send emails.

It has been rebranded as Make.

I always forget that. You’d think I’d know that by now considering I pay for and use the them monthly! Haha

@Jared_Gibb do you think Make is better than Sendgrid/Twillio? Or do they accomplish different things?

I like Make because it’s what I’m familiar with and it’s cheap.

The next thing I’d go to is SendIn Blue .

For my own projects, i like to buy a gsuite domain name and get an email address. 6/month
then i can send apps from my appscript and so they come from admin@appname.com. you can send something like 20k emails per day but it takes some coding and setup, so def not nocode

Is this the correct script I’m suppose to use in my app?

function doPost(e){
  var recipient = e.parameters.recipient;

  var subject = e.parameters.subject;

  var body = e.parameters.body;

  MailApp.sendEmail(recipient,subject,body);


}

The latest from Google, parameters returns a list while parameter returns a single variable. You need to check both.

What should I do?

Try using a single word only for subject and message and see if it works.

I got it working. The problem was my api url it was incorrect and when I redeployed my script with a new web app url ;
It worked as expected. Thanks @muneer! :grinning:
