Send email through rest api possible?

due to a customer request, I am wondering if it is possible to send emails from suitecrm via the rest api.
The request would be to trigger email generation / sending via suiteCRM from an external application. Where the “mail data” would be supplied by the external application.
Did anyone have a similar requirement or does someone have a suggestion on how to implement this by a workflow?
Like firing a workflow on update email record (on a certain customfield) an have the email send then. But I couldn’t figure out any way to send the email record itself by workflow? Is this possible at all?



It’s possible to create email records via the API, yes, but to send emails? You would need to interact with a mail account and the server to send emails.

This would certainly require other code customisations other than using the REST API.
