Email Intent Builder

An Android Library for the creation of SendTo Intents with mailto: URI

Read the article Android: Sending Email using Intents if you want to learn what motivated the creation of this library.

Usage

Creating a simple email intent is as easy as this:

Intent emailIntent = EmailIntentBuilder.from(activity)
        .to("alice@example.org")
        .subject("Feedback")
        .build();

This will build an intent with the action android.intent.action.SENDTO and the data mailto:alice@example.org?subject=Feedback.

You can also use EmailIntentBuilder to add a couple of other fields and directly launch the intent:

EmailIntentBuilder.from(activity)
        .to("alice@example.org")
        .cc("bob@example.org")
        .bcc("charles@example.org")
        .subject("Message from an app")
        .body("Some text here")
        .start();

Include the library

Add this to your dependencies block in build.gradle:

compile 'de.cketti.mailto:email-intent-builder:1.0.0'
