[Alpha Release] repl.email - a fully-fledged email service for repl.it users

Profile icon
MarcusWeinberger

repl.email

Only for repl.it users!

demo

Get a free email address -
@repl
.email

This project is in alpha - that means to expect some bugs, and not many features

Features

  • Send and receive emails to/from ANYONE - just like any email service
  • "Forward" emails to another email address - get notified when you receive an email
  • Email address based on your repl username - everyone's email address is the same as their username on repl.it - so you always know who you're emailing
  • Send emails to users who haven't even signed up yet - don't see their name in the autocomplete box? Don't worry! Just type [email protected] and when they log in, they'll see your email
  • Send to multiple emails, in the Sender field, separate as many email addresses you want by ; (semicolon + space)
  • markdown - although the editor shows plain text at the moment, you can write with the markdown syntax and your email will get rendered to HTML upon sending

Coming up

Expect lots of updates during the next couple weeks because I'll be working on new features (such as embedding repls, a live markdown editor, profile pictures, and more) and doing a complete redesign!

API COMING SOON!

Cool! But I get the error:
repl.it refused to connect. When I try to sign up

Profile icon

@8Bitz
Hmm, that is strange, I don't see that error. But you can just sign up to repl.it any way and then log in to repl.email

Profile icon

Are you doing it on an ipad or phone?

Time to see how to hack this site.

Profile icon
MarcusWeinberger

@HahaYes
if you manage, please let me know lol that's a big concern of mine seeing as people might sign up to things with this email address

Profile icon
HahaYes

@MarcusWeinberger
yeah of course, I'll be a "white hat" hacker. I'll check for some security problems.

@MarcusWeinberger
@HahaYes
I bet you don't have infinite time premium because you accidentally did something. sqreen for example.

I do.
also, sent tab does not work.

Profile icon
HahaYes

@Lethdev2019
LOL

Profile icon
conspicous

@HahaYes
i also found a bug. try clicking the sent tab.

Profile icon
HahaYes

@Lethdev2019
yeah i know

Profile icon
conspicous

@MarcusWeinberger
said he had to use another email service (seems he removed the statement or it is in comments) but I know SMTPlib (which I use to get emailed bugs in my programs).
@HahaYes

Profile icon
HahaYes

@Lethdev2019
yeah, I use smtplib

Profile icon
conspicous

Yeah, I keep asking to help. BECAUSE I REALLY WANT TO.

@HahaYes

Profile icon
MarcusWeinberger

@Lethdev2019
well on the python side i'm using smtp and imapclient to send and fetch emails. but the services are smtp2go.com and improvmx.com, i'm just using smtp2go's python api library

Profile icon
MarcusWeinberger

@Lethdev2019
I'm sorry it would just be a big security breach to allow others, repl.it doesn't have the kind of access management I would need to gurantee users' privacy

Profile icon
HahaYes

@MarcusWeinberger
There would be some big security flaws... just saying...

Profile icon
conspicous

@MarcusWeinberger

Profile icon
conspicous

well, are there other options for smtp2go because that has... a limit.

@MarcusWeinberger

Profile icon
conspicous

also, if you are going to make several comments, please truncate them to one comment or i can't see the earlier one until i read the latest one because i just click on the first thing.

@MarcusWeinberger

Profile icon
MarcusWeinberger

@Lethdev2019
i don't need help with that, I'm not even using smtplib, I'm using an API

Profile icon
conspicous

sorry i kinda realised when i read the earlier one just now. also some alternatives to help you out: https://alternativeto.net/software/smtp2go/

@Lethdev2019
i cant find a free one that lets me send from my own domain sadly :(, maybe i'll start running (non-intrusive) ads or do something. if i can raise funds to run a proper mailserver it will make things so much better. but i also kinda want to keep this free

Profile icon
conspicous

umm, I have an ad blocker (so do other people)... you can keep it free BUT you may need to introduce plans.

also, did you look at sendgrid which is freemium and has an API. (https://sendgrid.com/)

@MarcusWeinberger

Profile icon
MarcusWeinberger

@Lethdev2019
hmm, sendgrid does look good I might start moving to that. But for now i'm not worried about the smtp2go limit cause we arent getting that much traffic. I've just added in the API btw, gonna make a client for that and ill lyk

Profile icon
conspicous

also, did you like the GUI I made for the email program. (it's material UI)

@MarcusWeinberger

Profile icon
conspicous

What the???
I am not even on your team!

Profile icon

@MarcusWeinberger

Profile icon
conspicous

oh jeez, that's not good. Well I'm working on repl email 2.0 atm but I'll look into that

Profile icon
MarkRosenbaum

I really really like that the email has the option to secure with password.

Profile icon
hachimagic

this is very very cool it works really well

Profile icon
SupermaxBrightn

That's nice but can you add a push notification feature and linking photos and videos feature as well in the main version?

Profile icon
SupermaxBrightn

Also a way to see our sent messages

Profile icon
MarcusWeinberger

@SupermaxBrightn
linking photos and videos is already implemented kinda. You can write emails in markdown. Or try pasting an image into the text area. But yes

Profile icon
Aidan0626

this is great!
I found an exploit
you can send a message to anyone with 'html {display: none}' in it and it will blank their screen

Profile icon
MarcusWeinberger

@Aidan0626
oh damn I thought I didn't allow style tags I'll get on that

Profile icon
Leroy01010

HOW DO YOU DO IT TELL MEEEEE!! (in detail)

@Aidan0626

Profile icon
conspicous

no no. I know a fix... use an iframe, I did just that on pie after someone used css, someone may want to send like a business email to them (repl.it newsletters for example).

Yay something for me to try and exploit
