Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL no completa el campo Para

Estoy tratando de usar un to send an email from my application but the To field of the email will not populate. If I add code to fill in the subject or text, they work fine. Just the To field will not populate.

I have also tried changing the type to "text/plain" and "text/html" but I get the same problem. Can anyone help please?

public void Email(){

    Intent emailIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND); 
    emailIntent.setType("message/rfc822");  //set the email recipient
    String recipient = getString(R.string.IntegralEmailAddress);
    emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL  , recipient);
    //let the user choose what email client to use
    startActivity(Intent.createChooser(emailIntent, "Send mail using...")); }

The email client I'm trying to use is Gmail

I think you are not passing recipient as array of string

debería ser como

emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL,new String[] { "" });

Android... why are you so pathetic? - Suceden errores

hahaha, you made me laugh +1 Million @BugsHappen .. Reasons : Its a open source but documentation are not 100% satisfactory,device manufacturers modify according their needs(most devices are cheap and useless), developers doesn't read "". - MKJParekh

Also make sure that you are NO "Hacer" intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, list.toArray()) it WON'T WORK since list.toArray() produces Object[] and not String[] - nikib3ro

@kape123 this does work however intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, list.toArray(new String[0])) - Abtin Gramian

Utilizar este

public void Email(){
    // use this to declare your 'recipient' string and get your email recipient from your string xml file
    Resources res = getResources();
    String recipient = getString(R.string.IntegralEmailAddress);
    Intent emailIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND); 
    emailIntent.setType("message/rfc822");  //set the email recipient
    emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, recipient);
    //let the user choose what email client to use
    startActivity(Intent.createChooser(emailIntent, "Send mail using...")); 


This will work :)
This is what android documentation says about Intent.Extra_Email
-A string array of all "To" recipient email addresses.
So you should feed string properly You can read more over here y aquí Or use the ACTION_SENDTO action and include the "mailto:" data scheme. For example:

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SENDTO);
intent.setData(Uri.parse("mailto:")); // only email apps should handle this
intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, addresses);
intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, subject);
if (intent.resolveActivity(getPackageManager()) != null) {

In Kotlin - Android

fun sendMail(
        activity: Activity,
        emailIds: Array<String>,
        subject: String,
        textMessage: String
    ) {

        val emailIntent = Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND)
        emailIntent.type = "text/plain"
        emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, emailIds)
        emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, subject)
        emailIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, textMessage)
        try {
                    "Send email using..."
        } catch (ex: ActivityNotFoundException) {
                "No email clients installed.",

Also you can use [ val emailIntent = Intent(Intent.ACTION_SENDTO) ] to invoke direct email client

//argument of function
val subject = "subject of you email"
val eMailMessageTxt = "Add Message here"

val eMailId1 = ""
val eMailId2 = ""
val eMailIds: Array<String> = arrayOf(eMailId1,eMailId2)

//Calling function
sendMail(this, eMailIds, subject, eMailMessageTxt)

I hope this code snippet will help to kotlin developers.

It's saying no app can perform this action. - Abu Nayem

Un par de cosas:

1 - You need to set the action constant variable as ACTION_SENDTO.
Intent intentEmail = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SENDTO);

2 - If you want it to be opened by only the mail then use the setData() method: intentEmail.setData(Uri.parse("mailto:")); Otherwise it will ask you to open it as text, image, audio file by other apps present on your device.

3 - You need to pass the email ID string as an array object and not just as a string. String is: "". Array Object of the string is: new String[] {"email1", "email2", "more_email"}.

intentEmail.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, new String[] {"", ""});

Esto es lo que me funciona:

val email = ""
val intent = Intent(Intent.ACTION_SENDTO) = Uri.parse("mailto:$email")
intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT,"My Subject")

Made me waste so much time! Thanks to the accepted answer! I'll add some Kotlin code with a couple of handy extension functions

fun Activity.hasEmailClient(): Boolean =
    emailIntent("someAddress", "someSubject", "someText")
        .resolveActivity(packageManager) != null

fun Activity.openEmailClient(address: String, subject: String, text: String) {
    startActivity(emailIntent(address, subject, text))

private fun emailIntent(address: String, subject: String, text: String): Intent =
    Intent(Intent.ACTION_SENDTO).apply {
        type = "text/plain"
        data = Uri.parse("mailto:")
        putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, arrayOf(address))
        putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, subject)
        putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, text)

feel free to replace Activity with Fragment if it suits your needs. Example usage:

if (hasEmailClient()) {
        "this is the subject",
        "this is the text"
