This article covers Uno-specific information for the Windows.ApplicationModel.Email namespace. For a full description of the feature and instructions on using it, see Windows.ApplicationModel.Email Namespace.

  • The Windows.ApplicationModel.Email namespace provides classes for accessing and managing e-mail messages.


The ShowComposeNewEmailAsync method is supported.

On Android, it lets the user choose the target e-mail application before composing the e-mail.

On iOS, it uses MFMailComposeViewController but falls back to mailto: in case user has not set up any e-mail account yet.

On other platforms, the mailto: URI is used to try to compose the e-mail. This uses the Launcher API to launch the URI, so works on all platforms where Launcher is supported.

E-mail attachments are not supported yet.
