Sending emails using SMTP

Is there anybody out there who has experience of using SMTP directly (i.e. not via MAPI) for the programmatic sending of emails?

What I am really looking for is some code which allows me to configure the "From (reply-to) address", "To address", "subject", "message text", add attachments etc. Configuration of the "bounce address" would also be useful.

I have some amount of SMTP/POP/MIME experience.

The protocol used to send mail is SMTP but the format of the message is governed by MIME and hence you will need to use MIME for the creating of FROM, TO and the other fields.

There is a good comprehesive, cross-platform C++ library (with source code) available to create and edit MIME messages. You can download it from http://www.hunnysoft.com/mimepp/


Good Luck!
