$ npm install winston
$ npm install winston-mail
var winston = require('winston');

  • from: The address you want to send from. (default: winston@[server-host-name])
  • host: SMTP server hostname (default: localhost)

  • username User for server auth
  • password Password for server auth
  • subject Subject for email (default: winston: {{level}} {{msg}})
  • ssl: Use SSL (boolean or object { key, ca, cert })
  • tls: Boolean (if true, use starttls)
  • level: Level of messages that this transport should log.
  • unique: Boolean flag indicating whether to log only the declared level and none above.
  • silent: Boolean flag indicating whether to suppress output.
  • html: Boolean flag indicating whether to send mail body as html attach.
  • timeout: Maximum number of milliseconds to wait for smtp responses (optional, defaults to emailjs defaults - 5000)
  • authentication: Preffered SMTP auth methods (optional, defaults to emailjs defaults - ['PLAIN', 'CRAM-MD5', 'LOGIN', 'XOAUTH2'])
  • formatter: Custom mail body formatter with signature function({level, message, meta}). If specified, the return value will be used as mail body.

The subject option takes a mustache template string that exposes the following fields:

  • {{level}} - Log level
  • {{msg}} - First line of the error message
