Setting Up

Before sending messages you need to configure the gem with your credentials. In a Rails app this would typically go into a file called esendex.rb in the config/initializers.

You can omit account reference and specify it when you instantiate an account object if you're using multiple accounts.

You can also specify these using the environment variables ESENDEX_USERNAME, ESENDEX_PASSWORD and ESENDEX_ACCOUNT.

Sending Messages

First instantiate an Account with the reference. You can omit the reference if you've already configured one to use in the Esendex.configure step. Then, call the send method on the account object with a hash describing the message. The return value is a batch_id you can use to obtain the status of the messages you have sent.

Multiple messages are sent by passing an array of Messages to the send_messages method
