What is TransactionalMailHost

TransactionalMailHost is yet another MailHost implementation.  It integrates
with the transaction system of Zope in order to send out email  only in 
case of a committed transaction. TMH currently supports standard SMTP and 


- Zope 2.9+
- zope.sendmail


- Unpack the archive in your *Products* directory
- restart Zope
- create a new **TransactionMailHost** instance through the ZMI
- configure your SMTP host, port within the ZMI.
  username and password are optional for SMTP AUTH


TransactionMailHost is not fully (yet) API compatible with the Zope MailHost
implementation. It provides only one public method right now:

   send(message, fromaddr, toaddrs, subject, encode)

   The 'subject' and 'encode' parameters are unused right now

How does it compare to MailDropHost

MDH decouples the process of sending mail from its delivery.  Like all other
MailHost implementations TransactionalMailHost blocks the current Zope 
until the end of delivery. This can be a big disadvantage when you send out
email to multiple addresses. If you run a site producing lots of email you
might better checkout MailDropHost.
