Sending email through action

hey comm,

this is a solution on how to send emails through actions :slight_smile:

#dont forget the other imports

import smtplib

class Sendmail(Action):

 def name(self) -> Text:
     return "action_send_mail"
  def run(self, dispatcher: CollectingDispatcher,
          tracker: Tracker,
         domain: Dict[Text, Any]) -> List[Dict[Text, Any]]:
         Subject = tracker.get_slot('Subject')
         Body = tracker.get_slot('Body')
         Recipient = tracker.get_slot('Recipient')

         server = smtplib.SMTP_SSL('', 465) #connect to smtp server
         server.login("", "sender_pswd")  
         # you can write your mail and or get it from the slots with tracker.get_slot
         # if you are using your email is better that you dont pass it through the code for security u can 
         # set path variables with email and password and use them instead

         msg ="Subject: {} \n\n {} " .format(Subject,Body) #creating the message

         server.sendmail(                     #send the email 

         dispatcher.utter_message(" Email sended ! ")
         return [SlotSet("to",Recipient)] #just in my case, u can return ntg

can you share what should be written in domain.yml?
