Send Email

The Send Email component allows users to send emails via an orchestration pipeline. Users may wish to use this component to send email notifications upon any pipeline failures.

Note

Some SMTP servers will not allow the Sender Address property to be different from the SMTP Username (for example, Outlook and Gmail). This means that whatever is shown in the SMTP Username property will be used as the value of the "From" when the email is sent, and the Sender Address property will be ignored. This is beyond Matillion's control.

Depending on your configuration, it is safest to assume that email is an unencrypted medium. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid including sensitive content in the email Message. Instead, it is recommended to provide trusted URLs through which such context could be securely accessed.

Depending on the SMTP server, users may need to have Enable SSL/TLS set to Yes and Enable StartTLS set to No, and vice versa.
