Node.js Question

Send raw email file with nodeJs

I tried to send some email contained in a file with nodemailer for nodejs, to do that i first parsed the file with mailparser and then send the object returned with node mailer, the problem is that it seems that it doubles the headers, creating two from:, two to: etc...
I'm wondering if there is another way to make nodemailer read files from a directory and send them, or if you know some other way i could do that.

I have some files that gets accumulated in a directory and each day at 8am, they are all sent to a server. The time can change but thats not relevent i guess :). thanks for any help or tips you guys can give and the others for reading :P.

Here is the exemple of code i'm using as asked

var fs = require('fs');
var MailParser = require("mailparser").MailParser;
var file = './113B797D-69F0-4127-A4CE-27923E7006CF.3.1';
var nodemailer = require('nodemailer');
var transporter = nodemailer.createTransport({
port: 2529,
host: ''
var mailparser = new MailParser();
mailparser.on("error", function(err) {
console.log('[Error] mailparser: '+err);

mailparser.on("end", function(mail_object) {

var nodemailer = require('nodemailer');

// create reusable transporter object using the default SMTP transport 
var smtpConfig = {
    host: 'smtp.email.com',
    port: 465,
    secure: true, // use SSL
    auth: {
        user: 'test@email.com',
        pass: 'passHere'

var transporter = nodemailer.createTransport(smtpConfig);

// setup e-mail data with unicode symbols
var mailOptions = {
    envelope: {
        from: 'test@email.com', // sender address
        to: 'email@test.com'    // list of receivers
    raw: {
        path: '/path/to/file.eml'

// send mail with defined transport object
transporter.sendMail(mailOptions, function(error, info){
        return console.log(error);
    console.log('Message sent: ' + info.response);
