Do as follow :

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

ShellExecute 0&, vbNullString, "mailto:waty.thierry@usa.net", vbNullString, vbNullString, vbNormalFocus

This is the way I use in my shareware to allow the user to send me mail.

I think by adding some parameters, you can create a full body, title.... but I have never tried it.

Can you tell me how to use the shell32.dll?
    ShellExecute 0&, vbNullString, "huangxb@usa.net", _
      vbNullString, vbNullString, vbNormalFocus
I want to send e-mail automatically by VB, and do not want to send it manually, That
means nobody will press the keyboard or mouse.
What are the parameters should I place in the "vbNullString" and "vbNormalFOcus"?

There are no parameters for such using the function from waty. You'll have to write an smtp client for example to independently send email. I've been trying this for a few weeks but its very difficult

I have been looking for such an example on the Internet, and I have found SMTP Ocx's.  If you wish, I could send these URL's to you.

I would be very happy when someone is able to provide a sample that's independently of any ocx's. I will reward him/her of course with generous points!

Well, kulikuli, first off, you are going to need to connect to the smtp server, using port 25 (the smtp port standard).  Then look for the rfc document (here's one: http://www.eimb.relarn.ru/Connected/RFC/821/12.html ) on SMTP to learn what commmands to send etc. to send email through your smtp server.  I don't think it is very hard.  I would suggest getting a program like EasyTerm (what I use) to experiment.  EasyTerm is simply a telnet client, but you can connect using whatever port you wish.

I dig up those url's, huangxb, asap.

I will not 'spam' this topic any longer with my smtp questions. Instead I opened my own question on the SMTP problem(challenge). I still need to know how to connect to port 25.
