Send Email through REST API in SharePoint

In this article i will explain you how to send E-Mails through REST API in SharePoint.

We can send E-Mails through REST API using SP.Utilities.Utility.SendEmail.

Here is code to send E-Mail using REST API in SharePoint

$.ajax({
        contentType: 'application/json',
        url: urlEmail,
        type: "POST",
        data: JSON.stringify({
                  'properties': {
                  '__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.Utilities.EmailProperties' },
                  'Body': 'Hello user.. You got mail from codeplayandlearn.wordpress.com',
                  'To' : { 'results': ['admin@codeplayandlearn.com'] },
                  'Subject': "E-Mail From REST API";
                }
            }),
        headers: {
                    "Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
                    "content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose",
                    "X-RequestDigest": $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
                },
        success: function (data) {
                alert("Email Send Successful.");
                },
        error: function (err) {
                alert(err.responseText);
                }
        });

Here you don’t need to specify from E-Mail Id.

And make sure that To(Send to) E-Mail id should be E-Mail Id of any user from SharePoint Users.

And also make sure that metadata of Email should be

'type':'SP.Utilities.EmailProperties'

If this method not work or still you are getting error while sending E-Mails then try this method

Using separate function to send E-Mail from REST API


function processSendEmails() {
    var from = 'system@codeplayandlearn.com',
        to = 'member@codeplayandlearn.com',
        body = 'Dear member you got mail from Code Play and Learn',
        subject = 'Email from REST API';
    // Call sendEmail function
    sendEmail(from, to, body, subject);
}

function sendEmail(from, to, body, subject) {
    //Get the relative url of the site
    var siteurl = _spPageContextInfo.webServerRelativeUrl;
    var urlTemplate = siteurl + "/_api/SP.Utilities.Utility.SendEmail";
    $.ajax({
        contentType: 'application/json',
        url: urlTemplate,
        type: "POST",
        data: JSON.stringify({
            'properties': {
                '__metadata': {
                    'type': 'SP.Utilities.EmailProperties'
                },
                'From': from,
                'To': {
                    'results': [to]
                },
                'Body': body,
                'Subject': subject
            }
        }),
        headers: {
            "Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
            "content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose",
            "X-RequestDigest": jQuery("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
        },
        success: function(data) {
            alert('Email Sent Successfully');
        },
        error: function(err) {
            alert('Error in sending Email: ' + JSON.stringify(err));
        }
    });
}

$(document).ready(function () {
    SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', processSendEmails);
});

Here i have created separate function to send E-Mail in which i am passing information of E-Mails.

  1. Thank you.
    FYI, I can only call your function with the below info:
    sendEmail(“i:0#.w|domain\\login”, “i:0#.w|domain\\login”, “Your body message”, “Your subject message”);

  2. External users cannot be the recipients. It only works with sharepoint internal users. Also sending the email like abc@organization.org seems to be failing. Only sending the email through claim|domain\\userid seems to be working.
