Class Mail
Object
dw.net.Mail
This class is used to send an email with either plain text or MimeEncodedText content. Recipient data (from, to, cc, bcc) and subject are specified using setter methods. When the send() method is invoked, the email is put into an internal queue and sent asynchronously.

Note: when this class is used with sensitive data, be careful in persisting sensitive information to disk.

The following example script sends an email with MimeEncodedText content:

 
 function sendMail() {
  var template: Template = new dw.util.Template("myTemplate.isml");

  var o: Map = new dw.util.HashMap();
  o.put("customer","customer");
  o.put("product","product");

  var content: MimeEncodedText = template.render(o);
  var mail: Mail = new dw.net.Mail();
  mail.addTo("[email protected]");
  mail.setFrom("[email protected]");
  mail.setSubject("Example Email");
  mail.setContent(content);

  mail.send();//returns either Status.ERROR or Status.OK, mail might not be sent yet, when this method returns
  }
 
 

See Sending email via scripts or hooks in the documentation for additional examples.
