Send email

The Send Email action node sends a custom E-mail to a specified recipient via a third-party Email service.

An example setup of Send E-mail is showcased in our Showroom! You may view a demo, as well as access the setup in Appfarm Create. If you do not have access, you may register here.


Using the built-in action node Send Email you can easily set up feedback to users by Email.

Sending Emails using the Send Email action node, as well as the login & pin-code Emails, use the built-in Appfarm Mailgun Account by default. The sender domain of this Email is an Appfarm-domain, whereas the Display Name will default to your Solution name.

To see how to set this up, go to our Documentation about a Custom Mailgun account.

However, some customers prefer these Emails sent with their own domain as an Email address.

Appfarm also supports AWS (Amazon SES). To see how this is configured, click here.

Built-in properties


The sender is the end address that the Emails are sent from. The format of this setting depends on whether you are using the built-in account from Appfarm or you have connected your own.

If you are using your own email provider, the sender format should be From Name <>

If you are using the built-in Email account the sender address will automatically be set to Your Business Name <>. You can however override the part before the Email address by setting this property.

Reply To

If this is set, the replies to the Email will be sent to this address instead of the one specified by the Sender's address.

Message (text)

The plain text mail. If you provide a message in HTML, you must also provide the plain text version in this field. This is used as a fallback for email clients that do not support HTML.

Message (HTML)

Most newer Email clients can read HTML Emails. This property is used to provide the HTML version of your Email. This gives you the possibility to send "fancy" Emails with CSS styling and images (files) included.

Note that the message in plain text also must be provided.

Multiple recipients

Enabling Multiple Recipients makes it possible to specify a cardinality "Many" data source as a recipient, together with the Email and naming fields.


This is the Email of the recipient. Can be used to specify an Email of a single recipient together with the name of the recipient in Recipient Name.

Optionally: Specify multiple recipients as a comma-separated string:,

To include names, wrap the Email addresses in angled brackets (< and >): Ola <>, Kari <>

Recipient Name

An optional field with the name of the recipient. The field only applies if the Recipient field contains a single recipient Email.

Send separate

Check this box to send the Email separately to recipients. Not applicable in cases with a single recipient.


In these fields, you can type in more E-mail addresses, where the copies of your Email will be sent.


You can send one or multiple files as attachments with your Email. For this to be set up, you need a File Object Class data source, which you can set to Cardinality One or Many, depending on how many attachments you want to be able to upload to this E-mail. Notice you can also add multiple different data sources as attachments.
