that was 3 or 4 questions in one !! you should delete it !!.

for sending emails use TNMSMTP component wich comes with delphi 5 at the FastNet tab

you can use this function :

function EmailSend(SMTP: TNMSMTP; iniPath, Subject, ToAddrss, CC, BCC, aBody : String) :Boolean;
var
  MyIni : TIniFile;
begin
  try
    MyIni  := TIniFile.Create(iniPath + 'MyIni.ini');

    with SMTP do begin
      Host   := MyIni.ReadString('Email','Host','');
      Port   := StrToInt(MyIni.ReadString('Email','Port',''));
      UserID := MyIni.ReadString('Email','UserID','');
      Connect;
    end;

    if SMTP.Connected then begin
 
      with SMTP.PostMessage do begin
        FromAddress            := MyIni.ReadString('Email', 'Email','');
        FromName               := MyIni.ReadString('Email', 'Name', '');
        ToAddress.Text         := ToAddrss;
        ToCarbonCopy.Text      := CC;
        ToBlindCarbonCopy.Text := BCC;
        Body.Text              := aBody;
      end;

      SMTP.SendMail;
      Result := True;
    end else begin
      // Error
      Result := False;
    end;
  finally
    MyIni.Free;
  end;
end;

that function reads some info from ini File .. you can replace that with any String.

The best use of that code is to put in a general unit file for multible use with your programs.

thenks for the answer but it is important to me to work with the default mail client of the user.

if he is used to work with netscape messenger i want him to have the message redy in his composer. if he is used to outlook i want the message to open in an outlook mail message window.

thenk you again

to open in default e-mail client you must use shellexecute() api
the drawback to use shellexecute is you cant add attachment it must be done by user.
to add attachment you must use mapi as above but then it wont open in default email client..

example of shellexecute:

use shellapi;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
Var
Buffer : String;
recip,subj,mess : String;
begin
recip:= Edit1.text;   {message recipients email address}
subj:=Edit2.Text;     {message subject}
Mess:= Memo1.Text;    {message}
Buffer:='mailto:'+recip+'?subject='+subj+'&body='+mess;
ShellExecute(Application.Handle,'open',PChar(Buffer),nil,nil,SW_Normal);
end;

hmmm Omri,

I think I didnt understand you till now !!

if user check his inbox with outlook he will find the message there .. if he used composer he will find it also !!

so, whats the problem !!

oh, I think you want to create a program wich checking user's inbox.

if that was the case, I think Barry is accespted.

It still give me a small problem if my default e-mail client is outlook. the text from buffer is entered into recipient and not in the proper locations (subject,body..).
