In sharepoint hosted app how to send mail using js.I want send email to any user,not only for sharepoint user.


You can mail SharePoint users from JavaScript via the REST interface (sample from this thread):

function sendEmail(from, to, body, subject) {

appweburl = decodeURIComponent(getQueryStringParameter('SPAppWebUrl'));
hostweburl = decodeURIComponent(getQueryStringParameter('SPHostUrl'));
var urlTemplate = appweburl + "/_api/SP.Utilities.Utility.SendEmail";
    contentType: 'application/json',
    url: urlTemplate,
    type: "POST",
    data: JSON.stringify({
        'properties': {
            '__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.Utilities.EmailProperties' },
            'From': from,
            'To': { 'results': [to] },
            'Body': body,
            'Subject': subject
    headers: {
        "Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
        "content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose",
        "X-RequestDigest": $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
    success: function (data) {
    error: function (err) {

As far as I know you can not do that for external e-mail addresses via the out-of-the-box solutions provided by SharePoint.

A possible workaround: You can implement your own E-Mail sender service, make it available via REST, and call this interface from your SP hosted app.

  • As i have written one note "Note: As per @Danny commented, SharePoint can only mail to AD contacts".. For security reasons the recipient is limited to a valid SharePoint user . – SID Aug 11 '16 at 6:44
