Package com.google.appengine.api.mail Description

Provides a service to send email messages on behalf of administrators or authenticated users, also accessible via a JavaMail interface. Receiving messages is not supported via the JavaMail API but is supported via an HTTP interface.

This low-level API is intended primarily for framework authors. For application developers we provide a custom javax.mail.Transport that allows the standard javax.mail interface to be used to send emails. No special configuration is required to send emails via this interface.

The MailService.Message class represents a message, including sender and recipient information, and possibly attachments as MailService.Attachment objects. These can be independently created via their respective constructors.

Sending a message requires a MailService object, created by the MailServiceFactory. Messages are sent asynchronously, so the MailService methods will always succeed immediately. Any errors in the mail message will be returned to the sender's address as "bounce" messages.
