The source code in this issue is designed for Visual Basic 4.0 and higher.
This issue introduces a class to send a simple email message directly from Visual Basic using the MAPISession and MAPIMessages controls that ship with Visual Basic.
You will need to add the MAPI custom control to your project to use this class. In Visual Basic 5.0 you would perform the following steps:
This class requires that you drop a MAPISession and MAPIMessages control onto your form after you add the control to your project.
There are certain assumptions taken in this class. For example, it automatically signs you onto the email system (We tested with Eudora Pro) when you assign the MAPISessionControl property. It also does not support the addition of attachments in an email message. MAPI does support these functions. If you are interested, let us know and we will develop this class further and publish it on our web site or a later issue.
This is a simple example that will send an email message to our info address at firstname.lastname@example.org with a CC to email@example.com. It assumes the MAPISession control on your form is called MAPISess and the MAPIMessages control is called MAPIMsg.
Dim MAPI As New cMAPI Set MAPI.MAPISessionControl = MAPISess Set MAPI.MAPIMessageControl = MAPIMsg MAPI.ComposeMessage "Order for Code of the Week", _ "Please send me Code of the Week as soon as you can." MAPI.AddRecipient "firstname.lastname@example.org", RecipTypeTo MAPI.AddRecipient "email@example.com",RecipTypeCC MAPI.SendMessage Set MAPI = Nothing
