Send and receive email programmatically.
Support email as follows:
InterSystems IRIS provides an object representation of MIME email messages. It supports text and non-text attachments, single-part or multipart message bodies, and headers in ASCII and non-ASCII character sets.
You can send email via an SMTP server. SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) is the Internet standard for sending email.
You can also retrieve email from an email server via POP3, the most common standard for retrieving email from remote servers.
InterSystems IRIS does not provide an email server. Instead, it provides the ability to connect to and interact with email servers. The Management Portal uses the same API that is provided for you. Multiple parts of the Management Portal can send email automatically in the case of various events; an administrator specifies an SMTP server to use and other details as needed.
