SendEmail

The SendEmail function is used to send emails to an SMTP server for distribution to recipients.

Electronic mail servers and other mail transfer agents use SMTP to send and receive mail messages. User-level client mail applications typically use SMTP only for sending messages to a mail server for relaying, as does this Linx function.
