Need recommendations to approach email templates
I am using nodemailer v2.x and node v4.6.1. Trying out EmailTemplate v2.x
Want to make it modular structure with css inline and other heavy lifting should be done by libraries such as emailtemplate. Don't know much of the options I might have

Good day everyone, I have an interesting problem i was hoping you could help me with. I just deployed my nodejs/express site live out into the wild onto a digital ocean droplet with a domain name pointing to it and everything! 🤘 Everything was going great until i noticed spam bots submitting bogus data to my contact form which i'm using nodemailer to send. I set up a hidden honeypot field that cancels form submission if not empty, i thought that would do it, but no luck. I searched the internet, npm for packages and stackoverflow high and low for a solution and came up with nothing. If anyone has any suggestions, i would be all ears! Thank you in advance for your help 😊

Just in case anyone was curious. I was able to get it done with the NPM package email-existence. Thanks all for the help.
Existence is determined by telnetting to the MX server of the email domain and attempting to send an email to the supplied address. MX servers return 250 if the email address exists and 550 if it does not.
app.post("/products/contactCorporate", function (req, res) {
  let { name, email, message, businessAddress } = req.body;

  emailExistence.check(email, function (error, response) {
    if (response === false) {
      req.flash('success', 'Sorry, the email seems to be spam!');
      res.redirect("/products/contactCorporate");
    } else {
      submitForm();
    }
  });
});

Is @types/nodemailer up to date?

Hello, I'd like to run a smtp server in my tests to catch outgoing emails. I'm testing smtp-server + nodemailer.
const { SMTPServer } = require('smtp-server');
const nodemailer = require('nodemailer');

const SMTPServerInstance = new SMTPServer({
  logger: true,
  debug: true,
  authOptional: true
});

SMTPServerInstance.listen(() => {
  console.log('SMTP server is listening!\n');

  const transporter = nodemailer.createTransport({
    logger: true,
    debug: true,
    host: SMTPServerInstance.server.address().address,
    port: SMTPServerInstance.server.address().port,
    ignoreTLS: true
  });

  console.log('Sending email...');
  transporter
    .sendMail({
      from: 'sender@example.com',
      to: 'receiver@example.com',
      subject: 'Subject',
      text: 'Text',
      html: 'HTML'
    })
    .then((info) => {
      console.log('Email successfully sent!', info);
    })
    .catch((err) => {
      console.log('Error when sending an email:', err);
    })
    .finally(() => {
      SMTPServerInstance.close();
    });
});
I'm not sure why I set ignoreTLS: true on the client. I'd like to disable any auth/encryption on the server, the client should adapt by itself.
And I'm not convinced with authOptional: true on the server, I want it disabled not optional.

Second thing, I don't understand why attributes host+port doesn't work like attribute url. I'm trying to do url: 'smtp://{host}:{port}' but I get a TLS upgrade: https://runkit.com/mathieug/nodemailer--smtp-server/1.0.1

hi, can anyone help me to figure out what the problem is?
I have the following config:
"mailer": { "host": "email-smtp.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com", "port": 2587, "secure": true, "auth": { "user": "user", "pass": "pass" }
And code:
let transporter = nodemailer.createTransport(app.get('mailer')); app.use('/mailer', mailer(transporter));
It ends up with:
Error: connect ECONNREFUSED 127.0.0.1:587
But in the same time from terminal
telnet email-smtp.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com 2587
Results:
Trying 18.194.112.51... Connected to email-smtp.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com. Escape character is '^]'. 220 email-smtp.amazonaws.com ESMTP SimpleEmailService-d-W0F3CN0 OMZCUaPbOVT1Ookc
What can be the problem here?

@DanielMarcano
Could anyone help me with nodemailer and sending emails through SMTP?
For now it only works if I use tls: { rejectUnauthorized: false }
But I take it this would allow MITM attacks for my site... and that's not the point, of course.
The thing is that I do not understand what is it that I need to add as a Certificate Authority, nor how.
And have not found any clear/straightforward information on this on the web...

Hi guys, I've tried almost everything and I simply can't run nodemailer. I always get this error: TypeError: Cannot create property 'mailer' on string 'SMTP'
Andris Reinman
@andris9
@damiantoczek please follow Nodemailer documentation for setting up the transport object. From that error message it seems like you are using older Nodemailer configuration that was deprecated already in 2014. This configuration has not worked for the past 6 years. https://nodemailer.com/about/#example
