Send e-mail from AppleScript

Apple Script

Having a simple command for sending e-mail lets you automat e-mail sending without spending time learning complicated 3rd party technologies.

Add attachments


24U Email OSAX allows you to attach one or more files to your e-mail. The attachments can be encoded in a way that suits your receiver’s e-mail app. You can choose from AppleSingle, AppleDouble, Base64, and BinHex encoding.

Sending your attachments correctly encoded will assure their readability in many kinds of e-mail clients, even in the old ones.

Send e-mails in background


24U Email OSAX allows your script to send e-mails in background while it’s working on something else. The OSAX can automatically let your script know when the e-mail is sent.

Ability to send e-mails from background lets you make your script work fast without having to wait for every single e-mail to be sent.

Send HTML e-mails


With 24U Email OSAX your scripts can send formatted e-mails as HTML or multi-part messages. The message is properly constructed and encoded using the current standards.

Having your e-mails properly formatted using HTML lets you automate sending e-mails that look good and still are less likely to be filtered as spam by mail servers.

Connect to SMTP using SSL and authentication


To safeguard your communication with mail servers, 24U Email OSAX can use secured SSL/TLS connection and your choice of automatic, plain, cram md5, login, or pop3 authentication.

Using secured connection and proper authentication reduces the risk that your communication will be intercepted by a hacker. It also further minimizes the risk of your e-mails being filtered as spam by reliably identifying the sender.
