Sending A Snapshot In An E-Mail

I have the new SMTP Client plugin installed and working. I have it configured so that if the camera in my robot detects any motion, I get an e-mail and it takes a picture of what is moving. Now to take it one step further, is there a way to have that snapshot e-mailed to me as well? I thought I had seen something on this awhile ago but I can't find anything. Has anyone tried doing this? Is it possible?

You'd have to modify the smtp client plugin to make that happen.


By "you'd" did you mean you? LOL That's beyond my capabilities.


It would be great if a video could be sent as well.


lol fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine :)


There get the latest version for images:


Wow, that's fast! Installed it and it works great! One e-mail sends the message and the next e-mail has the image. Thanks


Both commands send a message fyi.

Sends only text ControlCommand("SMTP Client", Send, "bob@bobberton", "Bob Smith", "Test", "This is a test message")

Sends image and text ControlCommand("SMTP Client", SendImage, "Camera", "", "Bob Smith", "This is the subject", "This is the message body")


Good deal, works GREAT! Here's what I'm getting; User-inserted image
