Sending an Email from Second Life

In this post I'll send an email out from the Second Life world and into the real world, — my gmail inbox.

One line

All you need to do to send an email is use the llEmail method. The method takes 3 string arguments: the email address, the subject line, and the message body.

It's an extremely convenient and simple arrangement. Normally, sending an email from a program would require the complex setting up of SMTP servers, authentication, and so on. In Second Life, you it's reduced to a single line.

touch_start(integer total_number) {
    llEmail("EMAILADDR", "Email Subject", "Message body" );
    llSay(0, "I sent you email");
Email from Second Life in "real life".
