Create email using ASP.NET MVC views

Strongly-typed emails

Not everyone likes using dynamic objects. Postal lets you strongly type your email data if you need to.

Step 1 - Define a class that inherits from Email

namespace App.Models
  public class ExampleEmail : Email
    public string To { get; set; }
    public string Message { get; set; }

Step 2 - Use that class!

public void Send()
  var email = new ExampleEmail
    To = "",
    Message = "Strong typed message"

Step 3 - Create a view that uses your model. The name of the view is based on the class name. So ExampleEmail requires a view called Example.cshtml.

@model App.Models.ExampleEmail
To: @Model.To
Subject: Example
