I want to add a mail-comments-to-author-form to my Delphi app. Is there any way I can do this without having to deal with mail-clients and stuff? I want my user to be able to send me a mail just by clicking a button.

-Would also be useful to be able to determine if the user is online or not.

There is good example in delphi\demos\intenet\smtp directory

Here's another using the TNMSMTP component that ships with Delphi:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if not(nmsmtp1.Connected)
  then begin
   nmsmtp1.Host:= 'mail.SesameStreet.com';
    nmsmtp1.UserID := 'your userid';
    nmsmtp1.Connect;
  end;

  if nmsmtp1.Connected
  then
  begin
    nmsmtp1.ClearParams := True;
    nmsmtp1.SubType := mtPlain;
    nmsmtp1.EncodeType := uuMime;
    nmsmtp1.PostMessage.FromAddress := 'Bert@SesameStreet.Com';
    nmsmtp1.PostMessage.ReplyTo := nmsmtp1.PostMessage.FromAddress;
    nmsmtp1.PostMessage.FromName := 'Bert';
    nmsmtp1.PostMessage.ToAddress.Add('HerryMonster@SesameStreet.com');
    nmsmtp1.PostMessage.Body.AddStrings(Memo1.lines);
    nmsmtp1.PostMessage.Subject := 'Test';
    nmsmtp1.PostMessage.Date := DateToStr(Date);
    nmsmtp1.SendMail;
    MessageDlg('Mail sent OK', mtInformation, [mbOk], 0);
  end
  else
    MessageDlg('NOT connected', mtInformation, [mbOk], 0);
end;

Cheers,

Raymond.

Try F. Piette's SMTPCLI component. It includes good examples:

Great answer Raymond! But my mailserver requires a password too. How can I send the password?

Raymond, I figured it out. The SMTP doesn't need a password, only a correct sender-address. I got it to work. If the user has a modem, will it try to connect?

This will depend how your DUN is configured. MS have quite different DUN setups for 95/98/NT/2000 so you will need to consulr the documentation for your appropriate OS.

Good question. The PAQ may help you:
