I would like to get the default email(or all) address of the currently logged user.

I have a program that send a mail to me via the winsock control and i would like to put the email of the sender in the header to be able to reply to the message!

I would be able to get the address of any client email program.

Thank

I cannot try it. I do not have access to a computer on which only Eudora is installed.
