Default "Email made easy" via SMTP

SMTP wrapper control

Simple Mail Transfer Protocol control, ready to drop onto your form, and send email with. Easy

So... after the recent avalanche of requests for simple mail code, I knocked this up. It is a control that you can add to your projects. You then set a few properties, call the .SendMail method, and bingo.

It doesn't support attachments, and you will need access to an SMTP server, but mostly, your ISP will provide you with free access to theirs. Just mail them and ask for the correct server address.

As a follow-up to this thread; IF you have the need to send attachments, Ostrosoft offers a free SMTP control which supports them. I haven't checked out the Chief's control yet, but the Ostrosoft version probably has a larger footprint.
