  Is it possible to send mails from a NT service using Simple MAPI.
   We do not have exchange server.
   I have written a NT Service. Its start up parameter is set for
   "Administrator"
   When Run, MAPISendMail returns success.
    But the mail is not sent. [it is present in outbox] and Microsoft outlook
    hangs when closed.
   This happens only with Microsoft exchage and Outlook mail client.
 
   [Mails are sent when Outlook express and Netscape messanger are used
   as MAPI client]
   
    Why is Outlook hanging? should i use extended mapi.
     THe mail server is sendmail on linux
    Could somebody please suggest some solution to this problem
    or give pointers to some urls    
  TIA,
Akhila

Have you specified MAPI_NT_SERVICE flag for MAPIINIT_0.ulFlags in the MAPIInitialize()?

No, i am not calling MAPIInitialize as it is an extended mapi call.

There is no significant difference between using of extended MAPI as the ordinary application and as the service.

But you have to:

1) Specify MAPI_NT_SERVICE flag for MAPIINIT_0.ulFlags in the MAPIInitialize()

2) Do not use any user interface in your program like message boxes etc.
