The "Email Plugin" easily allows you to send emails using an email address from within your game/application. The plugin makes sure that any heavy code is run in the background asynchronously so that the game/application thread never gets halted. The plugin also offers an editor module which makes it easy to store various email accounts and retrieve them from inside any Blueprints at run-time. Custom text fields and Blueprint node pins keep passwords hidden and safe so that multiple people can collaborate on a project without having to reveal email's passwords.


The plugin allows to fully customise your emails by adding attachments, embedding images within the email message and specify sender name and subject.
