I want to create a simple SharePoint hosted app which will send an email to any email id,I followed how-to-send-email-with-attachment-through-sharepoint-hosted-app which is feasible to send mail but to SharePoint user only.

So I was thinking to use remote event receiver for this purpose if it is possible.

  • For remote event receivers you would need a Provider Hosted add-in, not a SharePoint Hosted. From that you can send email via SharePoint CSOM in C# or through standard .Net SMTP Aug 11, 2016 at 8:12
