How can I send emails without using the MAPI and without having Delphi Client/Server or Developer.
I just need to send a few lines to let the user register in my prog. Am I able to send them without the users SMTP.

No can't send mail without using the smtp component, but you can use the default internet browsers email by passing this in your code...

ShellExecute(Handle, 'open', 'mailto://yourmail@isp.com', '','', SW_SHOWNORMAL);

this will popup the default mailto form...the shellexecute allows you to pass param's aswell
so just check it out in the win32.hlp file...

I didn't want to use the MAPI to get them sended. Perhaps there's a way to do this within SMTP. Remember I only own D3 Standard

Sorry, I'm miss understanding you here, you don't need anything higher than delphi 2 to use the API I sent you, as for the SMTP been able to send email without having to code it connect to the pop server etc...I don't think this can be done.

It seems to me your only options are to send it through the default email client on the machine, or code your own SMTP client.

hi webers, use the freeware components of F. Piette :

A nice example for sending e-mail directly (without Mapi) is there!

Regards, Zif.
