Integration of Nimble and SMTP by Connect

Nimble is a simple way to send email through web browsers, mobile devices, and desktop applications. In contrast to traditional SMTP servers, Nimble users do not need to configure their SMTP servers. Instead, they use the Nimble API to send email directly from their applications.

SMTP by Connect is a PHP class that can be used to send emails through the SMTP protocp. It is a generic class that can be used for any type of email client. This allows for sending emails from any number of different applications, including PHP scripts and jQuery plug-ins. In order to set up SMTP by Connect, it is necessary to configure the SMTP server settings. These include the SMTP host, port number, username and password for authentication, and whether or not encryption is used.

Integration of Nimble and SMTP by Connect

With Nimble’s new feature ‘Send a Message’, it becomes possible to easily integrate Nimble with SMTP by Connect. ‘Send a Message’ allows developers to send messages via an easy-to-use API. In order to use this API, developers need to specify the configuration parameters of the message they want to send (to, subject, body, etc.

For example, the fplowing code snippet shows how SMTP by Connect could be integrated with Nimble. Note that this code snippet uses the CURL wrapper provided by Nimble (curl_init(). This wrapper is optional because any library that supports CURL can be used instead.

<?php $config = array( "to" => "[email protected]", "subject" => "Hello from Nimble!", "text" => "Hi there! Here's your message." ); // Create a Nimble Client $client = new NimbleClient("ACCESS_KEY"); // Set the configuration parameters $parameters = http_build_query($config); // Send the message $url = "https://api.nimbleapp.com/sendmessage"; $headers = array( 'Content-Type' => "application/x-www-form-urlencoded", 'Accept' => "text/plain", 'X-Nimble-Client' => "ACCESS_KEY", 'X-Nimble-Key' => $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"], 'X-Nimble-Access-Token' => $_POST['access_token'] ); $result = curl_init(); curl_setopt($result, CURLOPT_URL, $url); curl_setopt($result, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers); curl_setopt($result, CURLOPT_HTTPGET, true); curl_setopt($result, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $parameters); curl_exec($result); curl_close($result); ?> 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 <?php $config = array ( "to" = > [email protected]" , "subject" = > "Hello from Nimble!" , "text" = > "Hi there! Here's your message." . ; // Create a Nimble Client $client = new Nimble Client ( [email protected]" . ; // Set the configuration parameters $parameters = http_build_query ( $config . ; // Send the message $url = [email protected] ; $headers = array ( 'Content-Type' = > "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" , 'Accept' = > "text/plain" , 'X-Nimble-Client' = > "ACCESS_KEY" , 'X-Nimble-Key' = > $_SERVER [ "REMOTE_ADDR" ] , 'X-Nimble-Access-Token' = > $_POST [ 'access_token' ] . ; $result = curl _ init ( . ; curl _ setopt ( $result , CURLOPT_URL , $url . ; curl _ setopt ( $result , CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER , $headers . ; curl _ setopt ( $result , CURLOPT_HTTPGET , true . ; curl _ setopt ( $result , CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS , $parameters . ; curl _ exec ( $result . ; curl _ close ( $result . ; ?>

The above code snippet sends an email via Nimble’s ‘Send a Message’ API. The message will contain all of the configuration parameters passed in. These parameters will be sent as form encoded data inside of a POST request. In the end, Nimble will call the configured SMTP server and transmit the email contents over SMTP.

Benefits of Integration of Nimble and SMTP by Connect

  • Security & Reliability

Since this integration allows sending emails via SMTP, it has two major benefits for security and reliability:

  • Security . By sending emails via SMTP protocps rather than through localhost ports like most other email clients do, it is impossible for spammers to hack into your system using Nimble’s ‘Send a Message’ API because they cannot access your server. Moreover, you can use SSL encryption on your SMTP server so that third parties cannot sniff your traffic.
  • Reliability . If you are using your own mail server then it is possible that it might go down or have connectivity issues with other servers. However, if you are using a dedicated provider such as Google Apps or Amazon SES then there should be minimal downtime as these providers have redundant hardware in multiple locations around the world. However, even if you use your own mail server it is still more reliable than traditional SMTP servers because you will not need to worry about configuring it or making sure it is running 24/7 like most other apps do (because of its architecture.
    • Scalability & Flexibility

    By integrating with Nimble’s ‘Send a Message’ API, developers can take advantage of Nimble’s scalability and flexibility :
