Setting Email Message Attributes Dynamically

In addition to an email message body, you can use GroupDocs.Assembly to set the following email message attributes dynamically using the same template syntax:

  • Subject
  • From
  • To
  • CC
  • BCC

For example, given that recipients is an enumeration of strings "Named Recipient <>" and "", you can use the following template to set the To attribute for an email message.

<<foreach [r in recipients]>><<[r]>>; <</foreach>>

During runtime, the To attribute is set to the following value then.

Named Recipient <>;

Building Email Message Attachments Dynamically

GroupDocs.Assembly enables you to build contents of documents attached to email messages dynamically. To do this, attach template documents (of file formats supported by GroupDocs.Assembly) to your template email message. Then, while assembling the email message, the engine assembles the attached documents as well using the same data sources.
