    I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (Android 5.0 Lollipop) and ever since the upgrade from Kit Kat to Lollipop I have been unable to use Tasker to send an email. I have a number of Profiles that email my Tasker user config file but those profiles are no longer sending the email. I have since found a workaround where the files are uploaded to my DropBox account.

    Has anyone found a clean workout to this issue. I want to be able to email out of Tasker using SL4 or other app.

    Thanks.

    Can you post one of the profiles that worked in K and doesn't work in L?

    What happens when you manually invoke the task? Are there any error messages?

    Hello Thom,

    There are no errors. The email does not go out.

    Hello All,

    I downloaded Locale SendSilentmail; modified my Profile and it does send the email. But there is a question. How do I get the app to send all the files in a directory. I seems like I have to specify a file but I want to send all the files in the directory.

    Regards,

    Vernon

    Has anyone been able to reach the developer of Locale SendSilentmail. It seems like the site is not accessible and the email address provided is not working. Also does anyone use an alternative app to Locale SendSilentmail; its a great app but it only allows me to send one file at a time; I prefer to send multiple files in the same email. I really miss using SL4A; it was so simple to use.
