good day guys

i have created an android app with a button,when you click that button it sends an sms to some phone numbers, now i want the app to also send an email.i used this code

Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
i.setType("message/rfc822");
i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, new String[]{"####@gmail.com"});
i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "subject of email");
i.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "I need help urgent.. I am at this location:"
+ locationMessage);
startActivity(i);
Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),
"Email sent.", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

the problem is it opens the email client instead of outomatically sending the email, how do get it to send the email outomatically when the button is clicked

You would need an app that sends emails from intents without user interaction. The email apps I've seen don't work that way - they all show the GUI and require the user to confirm the mail sending. You could send the mail directly using https://code.google.com/archive/p/javamail-android/, but your app would have to deal with the mail account particulars, like mail server and credentials.
