Indy (www.indyproject.org) has an SMTP client component in it. It's very easy to send an email with that component. If you don't already have Indy (it comes with the more recent versions of Delphi) or you want to make sure you're working with the most up to date version, you can download it off of the Indy web site. In addition, there are demo programs there available for download. In the demo pack there's a demo of sending an email with SMTP. That demo project is named "SMTPRelay" FYI, Indy is open source and, therefore, free.

Hi,

What you want to do is a basically trivial task, but your being newbie makes it /quite/ complicated.
SMTP protocol is based on an RFC( Request For Comments ) by Jon Postal years ago.

Delphi has many components sets available to make Internet Programming, let's see the
best known:

1) Indy - officially distributed by Borland
2) ICS - the normal Indy opponent, see my comments in a previous thread
3) IPro - a well known library from former Turbo Power
4) Synapse - a class library
5) FastNet - DEAD

Reading my previous comments on this topic, you can get an idea of my POV.

Getting to more "practical" things, I'd suggest to use INDY, studying the working of
MailDemo example program.

When you're done with it, try creating a program of yours.

BTW: what delphi version do you have?

HTH,

Andrew

Hi,

Did you STUDY the MailDemo program as I told you BEFORE writing your own?

If you didn't, please *DO* now.

You need to understand that before writing your own, otherwise you wouldn't have
made the statement about port 25, I can assure you :-)

Cheers,

Andrew
