This module can be used by either passing a jid and password directly to send_message, or by specifying the name of a configuration profile in the minion config, minion pillar, or master config.

For example:

my-smtp-login:
    smtp.server: smtp.domain.com
    smtp.tls: True
    smtp.sender: admin@domain.com
    smtp.username: myuser
    smtp.password: verybadpass

The resourcename refers to the resource that is using this account. It is user-definable, and optional. The following configurations are both valid:

my-smtp-login:
    smtp.server: smtp.domain.com
    smtp.tls: True
    smtp.sender: admin@domain.com
    smtp.username: myuser
    smtp.password: verybadpass

another-smtp-login:
    smtp.server: smtp.domain.com
    smtp.tls: True
    smtp.sender: admin@domain.com
    smtp.username: myuser
    smtp.password: verybadpass
