    2. Go to node_modulesreact-native-smtp-mailer and add RNSmtpMailer.xcodeproj
    3. In XCode, in the project navigator, select your project. Add libRNSmtpMailer.a to your project's Build PhasesLink Binary With Libraries
    4. Run your project (Cmd+R)<

    Inside ios folder, if Podfile doesn't exist, create a Podfile with pod init. And add the following inside your Podfile:

    pod 'mailcore2-ios'

    Then run:

    pod install
    1. Open up android/app/src/main/java/[...]/
    • Add import com.rnsmtpmailer.RNSmtpMailerPackage; to the imports at the top of the file
    • Add new RNSmtpMailerPackage() to the list returned by the getPackages() method
    1. Append the following lines to android/settings.gradle:
      include ':react-native-smtp-mailer'
      project(':react-native-smtp-mailer').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, 	'../node_modules/react-native-smtp-mailer/android')
    2. Insert the following lines inside the dependencies block in android/app/build.gradle:
        implementation project(':react-native-smtp-mailer')

    Extra steps


    Maybe you need to add (if you encounter error with mimetypes during build), in android/app/build.gradle:

    android {
    	packagingOptions {
    		exclude 'META-INF/mimetypes.default'
    		exclude 'META-INF/mailcap.default'


    import RNSmtpMailer from "react-native-smtp-mailer";
      mailhost: "",
      port: "465",
      ssl: true, // optional. if false, then TLS is enabled. Its true by default in android. In iOS TLS/SSL is determined automatically, and this field doesn't affect anything
      username: "usernameEmail",
      password: "password",
      fromName: "Some Name", // optional
      replyTo: "usernameEmail", // optional
      recipients: "toEmail1,toEmail2",
      bcc: ["bccEmail1", "bccEmail2"], // optional
      subject: "subject",
      htmlBody: "<h1>header</h1><p>body</p>",
      attachmentPaths: [
        RNFS.ExternalDirectoryPath + "/image.jpg",
        RNFS.DocumentDirectoryPath + "/test.txt",
        RNFS.DocumentDirectoryPath + "/test2.csv",
        RNFS.DocumentDirectoryPath + "/pdfFile.pdf",
        RNFS.DocumentDirectoryPath + "/",
        RNFS.DocumentDirectoryPath + "/image.png"
      ], // optional
      attachmentNames: [
      ], // required in android, these are renames of original files. in ios filenames will be same as specified in path. In a ios-only application, no need to define it
      .then(success => console.log(success))
      .catch(err => console.log(err));
