I am wanting to use the TNMSMTP component to send mail. I would however like to know how it is possible to get the default mail client's host address.
 
Is it an API call or a registry setting?

Thanks

Use the registry to read the value of "Default Mail Account" from the key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager

This is a number (on my machine its 2).

Now get to this tree

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager\Accounts

and open the key of the number youve just got (ie, \2 on my machine).

This contains info for the default account.

From this you can get
SMTP Port
and
SMTP Server.

Have a look in regedit to understand what I mean.

Hope this helps.
