Hi,
   I have to send a mail with attachment from my application. I think i can not use mapi since it's not neccessary whether user is using outlook or not. If I use cdonts , in that case iis server should be installed on that machine.

  In summary if there is a net on pc what is the best way to send an email with attachment without any assumption.

Find out the SMTP server address, and send raw MIME data

Hi NavinKaushik,
You have to use "Simple MAPI"
Look official information at MSDN, starting at:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/mapi/html/_mapi1book_about_simple_mapi.asp

Look examples at codeproject.com:

Good luck,
Jaime.

You need a configured account in outlook (or outlook express) in order to send and receive mail with Simple MAPI.

Hi ,
    I have got a solution on codeguru forum. I would like to let you know Since in this case there is no dependency on outook, that's what I was looking for. I don't want to take any assumption like outlook will be configured etc.

 Attachments need to be sent by encoding the message in MIME format.
Additionally you might take a look at the following
 "http://codeproject.com/internet/csmtpconn.asp".
It wraps the SMTP protocol including the mentioned MIME attachments...
