Folks,
  I am developing an Email application to send email with

attachments from more than 2000 schools to the headquarters.
These schools use different types of computers like windows

95/98/2000/NT and different mail browsers like outlook,AOL,IE

etc.The application that I generate should be a general one to work

for different operating systems and different browsers.In this

scenario I cant use instance of outlook and MAPI control.I have to

use a general control .When I work with a general control I have to

set mail server name port etc. I would like to know is there any

API function or any other control  capable of providing mailserver

informations.Thank you very much for your cooperation
Thanks in Advance
Benjamin

Your easiest solution will be to use the IE control and navigating to an ASP page that uses ASPMail or CDO. You could also use WinInet or Winsock on the client for that purpose.

You'll go crazy trying to juggle mail clients on the client side without MAPI. Utterly unsupportable.

Use the free vbSendMail (http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=109) which is using SMTP to send e-mail. If your user is connected to the Internet, he can send e-mails.
