I am new to vb.net and have to create a system that records marks of a test, the system has to detect when the marks of the test fall below standard and then recalls the details of the person using their id number and fills them into an email form, this details include the name and id number. The system then is supposed to send the email to the supervisor, I am unable to do this web based due to the visual studio web environment not working correctly. It has to send the email through MAPI to outlook and then take it from there. I cannot even send it using SMTP because the SMTP on the server has been blocked.
I have not used vb.net before or connected to a database to carry out any of these actions. If any help or examples could be provided it would be very much appreciated.
Any suggestions or help would be of great benefit to me.
