Here’s an example of how to send a MIME message containing a bunch of pictures that may be residing in a directory:
# Import smtplib for the actual sending function
# And imghdr to find the types of our images
# Here are the email package modules we'll need
from email.message import EmailMessage
# Create the container email message.
msg = EmailMessage()
msg['Subject'] = 'Our family reunion'
# me == the sender's email address
# family = the list of all recipients' email addresses
msg['From'] = me
msg['To'] = ', '.join(family)
msg.preamble = 'You will not see this in a MIME-aware mail reader.\n'
# Open the files in binary mode. Use imghdr to figure out the
# MIME subtype for each specific image.
for file in pngfiles:
with open(file, 'rb') as fp:
img_data = fp.read()
# Send the email via our own SMTP server.
with smtplib.SMTP('localhost') as s:
I hope this will be helpful.
