Email

Email Overview


The Email control block lets you send email using an SSL enabled SMTP mail server. 

You can drag an Email block and drop it inside a workflow working area when a green field appears. Doing so makes it a part of that workflow.

As the Text and HTML fields require an input and an output, in the example, the Assign block is used in the beginning of the workflow to specify the Variable and Value for the Input of the Email, and again at the end of the workflow, for the Output (result) of the Email.



Procedure

Enter the information in the provided fields.

  1. AuthKey - by clicking on the field or clicking on thebutton and adding it. Click the Save button to save the AuthKey to the block, or click the Close button to exit without saving.
