Send email using rest api using SharePoint online/2013/2016

his SharePoint tutorial, we will discuss how to send email using the rest API in SharePoint Online or SharePoint 2013/2013. Here we will be using Rest API, jQuery, and SP.Utilities.Utility js to send email in SharePoint.

Send email using rest api SharePoint Online

Here in this example, I have created a sample contact us HTML form. Here there will be three fields and a button. On click of the button, it will send the email.

Here I have added the below script to a web part page in a script editor web part in SharePoint Online or SharePoint 2013/2016.

<h1>Contact Us</h1><br/>
Name: <br/>
<input type="text" name="myname" id="myname" placeholder="Enter your Name"/><br/>
Email: <br/>
<input type="text" name="myemail" id="myemail" placeholder="Enter your Email Address"/><br/>
Message: <br/>
<textarea rows="4" cols="50" id="mymessage"></textarea><br/><br/>
<button type="button" id="fbutton">Send Message</button>
<script src=""></script>
$(document).ready(function() {
var sitetemplateurl = _spPageContextInfo.webServerRelativeUrl + "_api/SP.Utilities.Utility.SendEmail";
var name = $("#myname").val();
var from = $("#myemail").val();
var msg = 'From: ' + name + '<br/><br/>' + 'Email: ' + from + '<br/><br/><br/>' + $("#mymessage").val();

contentType: 'application/json',
url: sitetemplateurl,
type: "POST",
data: JSON.stringify({
'properties': {
'__metadata': { 'type': 'SP.Utilities.EmailProperties' },
'From': from,
'To': { 'results': ['[email protected]'] },
'Body': msg,
'Subject':'New Email From SharePoint Online using RestAPI'
headers: {
"Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
"content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose",
"X-RequestDigest": $("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
success: function (data) {
alert('Message sent successfully !!!');
error: function (err) {

Once save the page, the page will appear like below:

After saving the page, after clicking on the button the email will go like below:

The below code block helps to send email to a user with the help of jQuery and REST service in SharePoint 2013/2016/2019.

<script src=””></script>

function processSendEmails() {
    var from = ‘[email protected]’,
        to = ‘[email protected]’,
        body = ‘Hello World Body’,
        subject = ‘Hello World Subject’;
    alert(“Sending email to Krishna”);
    // Call sendEmail function
    sendEmail(from, to, body, subject);
    alert(“Email sent Successfully”);

function sendEmail(from, to, body, subject) {
    try {
        //Get the relative url of the site
        var siteurl = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl;
        alert(“Site URL=”+siteurl);
        var urlTemplate = siteurl + “/_api/SP.Utilities.Utility.SendEmail”;
            contentType: ‘application/json’,
            url: urlTemplate,
            type: “POST”,
            data: JSON.stringify({
                ‘properties’: {
                    ‘__metadata’: {
                        ‘type’: ‘SP.Utilities.EmailProperties’
                    ‘From’: ‘[email protected]’,
                    ‘To’: { ‘results’: [‘[email protected]’] },
                    ‘Body’: body,
                    ‘Subject’: subject
            headers: {
                “Accept”: “application/json;odata=verbose”,
                “content-type”: “application/json;odata=verbose”,
                “X-RequestDigest”: jQuery(“#__REQUESTDIGEST”).val()
            success: function(data) {
                alert(‘Email Sent Successfully’);
            error: function(err) {
                alert(‘Error in sending Email: ‘ + JSON.stringify(err));
    catch (error) {
$(document).ready(function () {
    SP.SOD.executeFunc(‘sp.js’, ‘SP.ClientContext’, processSendEmails);

How does this code works?

  • Save this script as sendemail.js
  • Upload the script in sharepoint document / asserts library
  • Create a web part page add the content editor web part
  • Add the javascript in a content editor web part or script editor web part

If we read the code closely this script gets triggered on page load.

The output will be as follows.
