npm install gmail-sender-oauth --save

var gmailSender = require('gmail-sender-oauth');

Load Google Api Project client secret. To get this file follow Step 1 .

gmailSender.setClientSecretsFile('./client_secret.json');

Send Email (Requires Oauth2 authentication see below)

Send an email specifying all the headers (i.e 'from', 'to', 'subject', 'body').

var params = {
    from: 'sender.oauth@gmail.com',
    to: 'sender.oauth@gmail.com',
    subject: 'Win an iPhone 7 today!!!',
    body: 'This is a test'
};
gmailSender.send(accessToken, params, function (err, resp) {
  if (err) {
    return console.error('Something went wrong: ' + err);
  }
  else {
      console.log('Message sent with id: ' + resp.id);
  }
 
});

Authentication with Access Token

This assumes you already have an access token from Google Api. To get one, see test Generate Access Token and if you need to start from scratch, generate a Server Auth code first, see test Generate Server Auth code .
