Is there an easy way to make a program send a mail to me?
I have written a program, and I want to add a form to send bugreports or comments or whatever to me. I don't want to use any other program then mine, because not everybody has Outlook installed.
Or is it better to just give my e-mailaddress and let the people select how they want to send me something?
(I know that's probably easier, but I want to impress some people ;)
Tnx in advance!

I guess you could use SocketWrench or Winsock to connect to your server (if you have one) and send it that way. But I'm not sure.

Search the forum for "email", "MAPI" and "outlook"
Check the tutors corner for a tutor on Hotmails SMTP.

Okay, I've seen that... Thanks...
Stupid of me not to think of using winsock as a telnet thingie... Smart move..

After trying various SMTP-servers, I still haven't found one that works for all computers. I can't connect to Yahoo, I can't connenct to Hotmail. I can only connect to my isp's smtp-server, and I know not everyone has the same isp. I have searched the net for hours, but I still haven't found one. Is there anyone who knows an SMTP server that always works, no matter who tries to connect?

You cant connect to hotmail? .... but its open to everyone.....
Post your code and I'll see if i can use it to connect to hotmail.

Maybe they binned SMTP as well as POP3........ which I am still waiting for.

Well Chief, actually I used your code (from your tutorial) to make connection. I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with the code, because I could connect to my ISP's SMTP-server. (maybe the address of hotmail has changed (mail.hotmail.com), but I don't think so...)

I am connecting on mail.hotmai.com, and on port 25, yes. But this is somewhat strange: I have 2 computers: one at home, and one where I study. At home I can connect without any problem, But where I study (at my residence, I think it's called) I can't. Is it possible that the network I'm on (it's the network of the univ) doesn't allow me to connect?

Yeah, its possible that there's a firewall blocking port 25. It's fairly common practice on academic networks.
