Send an Email

The send e-mail task is useful for notifications about a result of graph execution. For example, you can create a listener with this task type to be notified about each failure in the specified sandbox or a failure of the particular graph.

This task is very useful, but for now only as a response for graph events. This feature is very powerful for monitoring. (for description of this task type, see Graph Event Listeners).

Note: It seems useless to send emails periodically, but it may send current server status or daily summary. These features will be implemented in further versions.
