 The ''mailSend()'' function sends the mailing with the //mailingID// ID to a specified email address straightaway or at a defined point in time. The email address does not have to -- in contrast to the ''[[:en:create:functions:mailResume]]'' and ''[[:en:create:functions:mailSchedule]]'' functions -- be known in the project's address list beforehand. The ''mailSend()'' function sends the mailing with the //mailingID// ID to a specified email address straightaway or at a defined point in time.

If there is a value for '''update''' and an e-mail has already been scheduled for sending (not yet sent) in the survey project with ''mailSend()'', which contains the same value for '''update''', then the sending date and all data will be updated instead of preparing another e-mail. For example, if you only want to send one e-mail per interview, then use e.g. ''%%'update' => caseToken()%%''.
 +    * '''%link%''' -- corrsponds to the parameter //Link//
 +    * '''%custom1%''' to '''%custom5%''' -- Content for the placeholders of the same name in the serial mail
 +    * '''attach''' -- variable ID (string) or several identifiers (array) of uploaded files (question of type "upload file"), which should be attached to the e-mail. Specify a key in the array to specify the file name for the attachment.

-===== Example =====+===== Example =====
  
 A colleague's email address should be requested in the interview, but not saved. An invitation should be sent to this email address with a reference to the current interview (case number CASE). A colleague's email address should be requested in the interview, but not saved. An invitation should be sent to this email address with a reference to the current interview (case number CASE).

 +**Note:** This use case is usually easier to implement with a question of type [[:en:create:questions:email]] and without any PHP code. Here only an alternative solution using ''mailSend()'' is shown.

 +===== Example 2 =====
 +
 +A respondent fills out a test, the point value was calculated in variable ''$points'' and is to be sent now together with the participant identification (SERIAL) to a Mailadresse, so that the researcher is informed automatically about terminated tests.
 +
 +For this purpose a serial mail (ID 1) was created under **Send invitations** -> **Serial mails**, which has among others the following contents.
 +
 +<code>
 +respondents: %custom1%
 +Test result: %custom2%
 +</code>
 +
 +On the last page of the questionnaire the following PHP code would now be placed under the calculation of the points value (''$points'') to send the result to ''store@example.com''.
 +
 +<code php>
 +mailSend('store@example.com', 1, 0, ZERO, caseSerial(), $points);
