Send simple email action allows sending an email from one email address to another.

You can edit several parameters: the text and the subject of the message, the sender and recipient email addresses. You can also attach files of any format supported by your email service provider.


This action is available at any event except JavaScript onload events.



Note: To use this action, you have to set up the Email settings. Press this button hmfile_hash_34fe252e on the toolbar or write the code manually.




// ********** Send simple email ************
$msg="Hello there\nBest regards";
$subject="Sample subject";
$ret=runner_mail(array('to' => $email, 'subject' => $subject, 'body' => $msg, 'from'=>$from));
  echo $ret["message"];


You can send HTML emails as well:


Note: Assign HTML code to your $msg variable and replace the 'body' key with 'htmlbody' key.


// ********** Send HTML email ************
$msg="<b>Hello there</b><br>Best regards";
$subject="Sample subject";
$attachments = array();
$ret=runner_mail(array('to' => $email, 'subject' => $subject, 'htmlbody' => $msg, 'from'=>$from, 'attachments' => $attachments));
