Setting Email Message Attributes Dynamically
In addition to an email message body, you can use GroupDocs.Assembly to set the following email message attributes dynamically using the same template syntax:
For example, given that
recipients is an enumeration of strings
"Named Recipient <email@example.com>" and
"firstname.lastname@example.org", you can use the following template to set the
To attribute for an email message.
<<foreach [r in recipients]>><<[r]>>; <</foreach>>
During runtime, the
To attribute is set to the following value then.
Named Recipient <email@example.com>; firstname.lastname@example.org
Building Email Message Attachments Dynamically
GroupDocs.Assembly enables you to build contents of documents attached to email messages dynamically. To do this, attach template documents (of file formats supported by GroupDocs.Assembly) to your template email message. Then, while assembling the email message, the engine assembles the attached documents as well using the same data sources.
