  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>  
  2. <RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin" android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin" android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin" android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin" tools:context="xyz.rvconstructions.www.sendemailapp.MainActivity">  
  3.     <EditText android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:inputType="textEmailAddress" android:ems="10" android:id="@+id/editText" android:layout_alignParentTop="true" android:layout_alignParentRight="true" android:layout_alignParentEnd="true" />  
  4.     <EditText android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:inputType="textEmailAddress" android:ems="10" android:id="@+id/editText2" android:layout_below="@+id/editText" android:layout_alignRight="@+id/editText" android:layout_alignEnd="@+id/editText" />  
  5.     <EditText android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:inputType="textEmailAddress" android:ems="10" android:id="@+id/editText3" android:layout_below="@+id/editText2" android:layout_alignRight="@+id/editText2" android:layout_alignEnd="@+id/editText2" />  
  6.     <Button android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="SEND MAIL" android:id="@+id/sendbttn" android:layout_centerVertical="true" android:layout_alignLeft="@+id/editText3" android:layout_alignStart="@+id/editText3" />  
  7.     <TextView android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="Recipient" android:id="@+id/textView" android:layout_alignBottom="@+id/editText" android:layout_alignParentLeft="true" android:layout_alignParentStart="true" />  
  8.     <TextView android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="subject" android:id="@+id/textView2" android:layout_alignBottom="@+id/editText2" android:layout_alignParentLeft="true" android:layout_alignParentStart="true" />  
  9.     <TextView android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="Message Body" android:id="@+id/textView3" android:layout_alignBottom="@+id/editText3" android:layout_alignParentLeft="true" android:layout_alignParentStart="true" /> </RelativeLayout>  
Step 5

Now ,you will build on AndroidManifest.xml code.
  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>  
  2. <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="xyz.rvconstructions.www.sendemailapp">  
  3.     <application android:allowBackup="true" android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher" android:label="@string/app_name" android:supportsRtl="true" android:theme="@style/AppTheme">  
  4.         <activity android:name=".MainActivity">  
  5.             <intent-filter>  
  6.                 <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />  
  7.                 <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" /> </intent-filter>  
  8.         </activity>  
  9.     </application>  
  10. </manifest>  
Step 6

Now, you will go to MainActivity.java page and you will build the java code.

First of all you will declare the Header file.

application name
  1. package xyz.rvconstructions.www.sendemailapp;  
  2. import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;  
  3. import android.os.Bundle;  
  4. import android.net.Uri;  
  5. import android.app.Activity;  
  6. import android.content.Intent;  
  7. import android.util.Log;  
  8. import android.view.Menu;  
  9. import android.view.View;  
  10. import android.widget.Button;  
  11. import android.widget.Toast;  
Now, you will declare and get the reference in the button and perform the OnClickListener.


  1. Button startBtn = (Button) findViewById(R.id.sendbttn);  
  2. startBtn.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {  
  3.     public void onClick(View view) {  
  4.         sendEmail();  
  5.     }  
  6. });  
Here, you will assign the method() of sendEmail().

application name
  1. protected void sendEmail() {  
  2.         Log.i("Send email""");  
  3.         String[] TO = {  
  4.             "muthuramalingam566@gmail.com"  
  5.         };  
  6.         String[] CC = {  
  7.             "ramdurai25@gmail.com"  
  8.         };  
  9.         Intent emailIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);  
  10.         emailIntent.setData(Uri.parse("mailto:"));  
  11.         emailIntent.setType("text/plain");  
  12.         emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, TO);  
  13.         emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_CC, CC);  
  14.         emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "Your subject");  
  15.         emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "Email message goes here");  
  16.         try {  
  17.             startActivity(Intent.createChooser(emailIntent, "Send mail..."));  
  18.             finish();  
  19.             Log.i("Finished sending email...""");  
  20.         } catch (android.content.ActivityNotFoundException ex) {  
  21.             Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this"There is no email client installed.", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();  
  22.         }  
  23.     }  
  24.     // This is just a sample script. Paste your real code (javascript or HTML) here.  
  25. if ('this_is' == /an_example/) {  
  26.     of_beautifier();  
  27. else {  
  28.     var a = b ? (c % d) : e[f];  
  29. }  
Step 7

Now ,you will run the application in emulator or devices.
