Topic: Arduino email library? (Read 2756 times) previous topic - next topic



Umm, an email library that does what?

Do you mean sending an email using an arduino and ethernet shield?



yes, I saw the threads, but they do not talk about an existing library, that's why I'm asking.


You did not describe what you want to do.

You do not always need a library. You can program a sketch without it  ;)



So... what exactly do you want to do?


Of course, sending an email upon an "event" (i.e. specific input).
But aI read about complexity due to authentication and encryption, so I really need a library... ::)

You are probably better off using an intermediate server (or proxy).  You could have a small script running on a web server that the Arduino sends a request to.  The script could then generate and send the email for you.  The overhead to form a HTTP request (and send it) is far smaller than communicating with an SMTP server.

Thanks for your help, but if nobody has info about SMTP libraries, I think I' ll be "forced" by moderators to ask in the other threads.  :(


Well, roll your won lib, you will learn a lot that way.
