go-gmail is an up-and-coming GMail library in Golang. For now it only supports sending e-mail using authenticated SMTP.


Assuming you have a working Go environment, installation is simple:

go get github.com/njern/gogmail

You can take a look at the documentation locally with:

godoc github.com/njern/gogmail

The included tests in gogmail_test.go also illustrate usage of the package.

Note: You must enter a valid GMail address / password in gogmail_test.go or the tests will fail! For obvious reasons I did not leave my own address / password in the test file... :)


import "github.com/njern/gogmail"
import "log"

gmail := gogmail.GmailConnection("gmailuser@gmail.com", "my_password")

err := gmail.SendMail([]string{"niclas@walkbase.com"}, "Hello go-gmail!", "Looks like go-gmail is working just fine!")
if err != nil {
	log.Fatal("Sending a GMail e-mail failed with error: ", err)

Future plans

  • Support for retrieving e-mail, folders, etc etc

How can you help?

  • Let me know if you're using go-gmail by dropping me a line at [github user name] at walkbase.com
  • Let me know about any bugs / annoyances the same way
