Send e-mails from app

I would like to send an automated e-mail from my application using the shop email address.

I know I can send an e-mail covering the address with the desired one but I would prefer to send it using an API of shopify.

Do you know what shopify API can send emails?

No you can't use Shopify to send emails. I'd suggest looking into a service like mailgun.

Hello Menelaos,

should the mails be triggered when a specific event or action occurs within Shopify? For example customer/created or product/updated? (Also see thread on event related mails).

Yes,

I will use Webhook (http://docs.shopify.com/api/webhook) for this.

I haven't use them but I think when the event is triggered, a post will be initiated from Shopify to my application having the same body as the response from the corresponding API call.

Yes you can use webhooks to accomplish this. You need to have a server running to accept this call and convert it to a email message.
