    I am looking to send automated emails from to user-admin within my app when certain events are triggered,

    I.e: user makes a request, admin approves/declines request

    I have looked at the push notification plugins, but with my use-case this isn’t particularly ideal, as i would like a paper trail for users in case anything needs to be referenced in the future.

    Is there anything in felgo i can use for smtp emails? My app uses firebase, but i dont think i can work with firebase functions in felgo at the moment so would need to keep it in-app??

    Hi Edward,

    there’s no Felgo Plugin that handles SMTP / email at the moment. For such use-cases, the most common way is a backend-server for your mobile application, which can handle the email sending among other things then.

    Communication between client and server is most easy using a REST API: https://felgo.com/doc/apps-howto-access-rest-service/

     

    It is not possible directly use SMTP from your Qt Quick Application. However, you can integrate a C++ SMTP library, e.g.:

    You can then also expose your C++ function for email sending to QML as described here: https://felgo.com/cross-platform-development/how-to-expose-a-qt-cpp-class-with-signals-and-slots-to-qml

     

    Alternatively, you can have a look on developer-oriented email services like mailgun: https://www.mailgun.com/ (quickly found via Google)

    Best,
    Günther from Felgo
