sending mail with images via xsjs


I am using SMTP relay server to send mails via XSJS project. I am able to send mails with HTML content and normal text type. However now i also want to embed images in the mails. I am using typical HTML format <img width=500 height=100 src=cid:Capture>", however it is not working.When the mail is received there is error shown in space of image : The linked image cannot be displayed.

Any pointers on how to send mails using xsjs using HTML content with embedded images.

  • Please can you share how to create the parts of the mail (the image file part and the html part).

    Below is the HTML content of the mail with the image embedded :

    var mailContent = "<html><body><img width=500 height=100 src=cid:Capture.PNG><p>Test email,</p> </body></html>";<I have placed the image with name Capture.png in the XS project folder directly>

    Below is the code for sending the mail :

    // Create an attachment $.net.Mail.Part from JSObject.

    var Attachment = new $.net.Mail.Part({ type: $.net.Mail.Part.TYPE_ATTACHMENT,

    data: <Here i have converted the image into binary format which is long queues of 0s and 1s and passing as string>

    contentType: "image/png",

    fileName: "Capture.PNG",

    fileNameEncoding: "UTF-8" });

    var HTMLContent= new $.net.Mail.Part();

    HTMLContent.type = $.net.Mail.Part.TYPE_TEXT;

    HTMLContent.text = bodyContent;

    HTMLContent.contentType = "text/html";

    HTMLContent.encoding = "UTF-8";

    var mail = new $.net.Mail({ sender: {address: ""}, to: [{ address: "}], subject: mainContent, subjectEncoding: "UTF-8" });,HTMLContent);

    Instead of an attachment you should create an mail part of type $.net.Mail.Part.TYPE_INLINE in which you can define the Content ID you refer in the HTML part.

    You can check the example in the documentation:$.net.Mail.Part.html

    Please enclose the value of the image src attribute also in double quotes to avoid any issues (e.g. src="cid:CAPUTURE"). Of course you need to adjust the value to contain the defined content id in the inline part.
